    The uncorroded bar already looked as if it had bark, but the rust makes it look as if it’s turning into a alder stick. The manipulated pictures go to the direction of gemstones and marble.

    I like this kind of alchemy.

    That is gorgeous. I remember a materials science professor who would have waxed eloquently for thirty minutes about that photo.

    The mildly deranged penguin likes to corrode things, and has been known to corrode the corrosion’s corrosion. Among the best corrosive agents is that stuff of legend, demon’s pee, which comes in numerous grades, stinks, and colours. Probably also tastes but no-one has survived a tasting to confirm, albeit the screams as they dissolve are impressive

    The best demon’s pee is graded “republican”.

    I’d listen! I had that open, full size, last night while I was setting up to schedule, and stared at it for at least 30 minutes. Fascinating.

    ‘Beauty’ and ‘corrosion’ do not go in the same sentence in my world (aircraft), but I love what you did with the pic!
