Visual Likeness

On the left are photographs of the sidewalk ice formations and on the right are the rust panels.  It was not our intention to directly copy the photographs , but after making 75 panels, the inspirational imagery is strikingly similar.

Art reflects life, the eye recreates what it finds pleasing.

Rock Salt

Rummaging through our TeFe photo archive turned up some gems, or should I say crystals.  Our brine solutions slowly evaporate as we work and leaves behind these formations.  Before re-energizing the brine, we shot these images using the super-macro setting on our camera.  We just flipped the "odometer" --- 10,000 shots, same camera, same two sets of rechargeable batteries.
