A Word A Week Photography Challenge: Metallic

Inspiration – I walked down to the waterfront this morning  just as the sun was rising.  I captured quite a few images.  Here are four that I believe lend themselves nicely to this weeks challenge, a sculpture, part of a bridge and a shell (from two angles).

Check out more submissions here.



This sculpture is 3.4 m (11 ft) in diameter and is made of coated aluminium.  It is suspended on stainless steel wires 14 m (46 ft) above Civic Square (Wellington, New Zealand).



This image is part of the railings on a bridge I happened upon.  It appears that people randomly attach locks to the railing.  Some had messages written on them.

"Abalone I"

These next two images are close ups of the inside of an Abalone shell which has a similar lustre to that of the pearl shell.  Abalone, is a common name for any of a group of small to very large edible sea snails, marine gastropod molluscs in the family Haliotidae (thanks Wikipedia).
