Flames of Rust. Rust, oxidation, corrosion and intelligent design. Rust is the effect of a chemical reaction. This reaction causes heat. And where there is heat we find numerous forms of fire. In these photographs, I strive to convey the beauty and sometime power of the element of fire as we find it in our everyday environment,as in this study, in the form of Rust. I spent a spring and summer crawling all over the bridges spanning the Willamette river in Portland Oregon,seeking out the ultimate rust shot. To say the least it became quite the adventure. I hope you enjoy the photographs as much as I did creating them. Charles Lucas.
