This is a very iconic picture. Often, you have used a close up or an unusual viewpoint to draw attention to part of the object you are capturing, but not so here. Putting the entire wheel in the shot gives it a completion of purpose and makes it like an icon, we know what it was used for and can see why it is not in use presently. This shot evokes movement, the viewer pictures wagons and handcarts rolling across rutted dust trails through grass. Very strong, hard-working images.

I like the texture in this pic… the wheel, the brick, the painted window sill and the shiny glass. I like the repetition of the spokes and also of the nails. Each two spokes are together with a piece of edge. Must have made them easier and faster to put together, no? 🙂

So much depended on those old wooden wheels. When I was a girl, some farmers used old wheels like this one to help hold big pieces of canvas in their ditches as dams for the irrigation water. Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without.
