Rusty Wheel - entropy vs biosphere

The squeaky wheel may get the grease, but the wheel that's way beyond squeaking and is coated with rust may be examined by photographers obsessed with fascinated by patterns of decay. Of course the oxygen that combines with the iron to form rust exists in its current concentration in our atmosphere (about 21%) thanks to cyanobacteria and plants. What makes animal life possible also assures us of copious quantities of rust. Entropy versus the biosphere!

  1. Your scientific and funny perspective on the world is perhaps best illustrated here in your prose and the artistically interesting photo of the wheel (the oldest invention?)! I learn a lot from your posts and enjoy the show! Bravo!!
