In his Planet Universe series, Adam Kennedy uses a little editing to transform rusty old fire hydrants into his own celestial bodies.
We asked Adam about his process. Here’s what he told us!
I normally just photograph the rusty hydrant from several different angles, because many times I can make two to three planets from one.
I try to let each hydrant guide the process, because the thing that makes the planets interesting is the idea that they are reflections of natural processes on earth, making use of digital manipulation simply to highlight that fact.
I have tried this process with many objects other than fire hydrants, but they often do not work very nicely. For example many wooden banisters have round wooden tops, but the rusty metal orbs are just so perfect because there are such clearly defined areas for the land and sea.
The fact that the darker rusty regions lend themselves to deep blue oceans makes me feel fortunate that this city (San Francisco) has such peculiar fire hydrants, and what would seem to be a shortage of white paint.

I’m not sure if anyone who follows me really cares about the AFL or the GWS Giants, but don’t tell me you don’t want to watch two professional athletes get ridiculously excited over the fact that they’re getting the opportunity to interview Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.
