Creeping Black On Silver

Sitting on the hood of the car clicking photo after photo, I finally captured this bolt touching down on the outskirts of Portsmouth, NH....right before my batteries ran out.

After watching that heat lightening streaking across the sky, I created this.
The charred wood was found among the remains of a bonfire on the coast of Nova Scotia, and at the top it's gripped by an antique caliper. On the silvered end lies black seaweed which I soaked until soft and then coiled around a slender piece of driftwood, mimicking a bolt and playing on the contrast of the base.
