Yellow Wagon Wheel

Posted by
Barbara Lee (Oakland, United States) on 16 September 2010 in Transportation and Portfolio.

I drove up to the California Gold Country for a couple of days this week to visit an old friend. We went to see a friend of hers who repairs wagons, carts, stage coaches, and covered wagons as a business. Here is an old wagon wheel that was lying about on his ranch.

Nice textures; I like the yellow paint peeling in places, revealing the weathered look of the wood grain below.

I like the textures and the history represented here, Barbara. I have had limited time lately, but just clicked back through your shots and enjoyed the trip. ;-)

Love the decayed worn feeling, the peeling paint, the dried grass. Nicely framed!

this is an excellent example on how to pick out and focus on fine/small detail from a larger scene! very well spotted and composed here! the close up allows us all to take it the fine textures of the wood and the peeling paint also gives this an interesting effect - superb work!

@DarkElf: Why, thank you so much! I am flattered! I do have fun looking for images like this!

I love Gold Country, and all the neat little old towns there....I love your composition on this- and I am glad you left all the little spider webby stuff! (gives it a feeling of true age!)
