In response to Cee’s Odd Ball Challenge 2015 Week 28.
Every now and then, I find myself i strange positions, trying to take photo in a weird position, and the object of focus is inevitably out of the ordinary.
Some years back, I took a picture of the rusty metal hinge that had held the KTM railway track (historical train track linking two countries, Malaysia and Singapore) together for the longest time. The image of this hinge is imprinted in my mind because it was so strange! I was wondering how the hinge was being manufactured, how it was being locked into place, why it had stayed perfectly functional for so long, how heavy it might weigh, would it ever rust away… You might be able to answer my questions. This is what the hinge looks like:
In fact, I was so fascinated, or perhaps mystified by the hinge that I took another photo of it some distance down the track.
I was likely thinking, “I have photographed the one on the left. Something feels amiss. I need to photograph the one on the right.” And that might have been how I ended up with two photographs.
Even I, myself, only just realised that I have two photos of the same object. If I had not looked through my photos for this challenge, I would have carried on living without knowing how bizarre I thought those hinges were back then.
How do you find it?

Great up close shots of rail tracks. Love your photos. 😀
Thank you for the kind compliment.
I am the strange person who squat down in the middle of nowhere and get odd looks. Hehe!
