I have spent the last year photographing an industrial section of Mare Island shipyard. Rows of huge–3/4″ steel, 31″ diamaeter, 71′ long–rusted tubes first captured my attention. But what kept drawing me back were the details: horizontal bands of color that change with the light, the interplay between the orange rust and the other colors. I don’t know the chemical processes responsible for the colors.
