Copper Plate

One afternoon last autumn I was sitting waiting for the bus. I noticed a nearby sculpture had acquired a nice patina and decided to take a few shots of it. Overall it was a rusty, copper color, but close up the iPhone camera picked out a lot of colors and textures that were not visible to the naked eye. It looked like a uniform shade of brown without the camera!

Blues, greens and different shades of brown.

Textures were highlighted. It almost looks like the surface of Europa or some other moon captured by the cameras of Voyager.copper_plate_03
