photoblog image Big Wheel

Big Wheel

Moving away from my seaside pictures of last week I am returning, for today, to the Great Central Railway at Loughborough.

All of these places have lots of "stuff" laying about the place and I particularly liked the shapes of the centre of this locomotive driving wheel. The hint of red in the nuts at the back provide a pleasant contrast to the black of the wheel.

For the rest of the week we will see my "attempts" at candid style work.

I can almost feel the power here, what a sturdy construction, and nice to look at too
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ellie, when you get near to these things you realise how strong and heavy the construction is.

great composition Brian and your quite right about the contrastsmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tim, without that red bit it would just be a "flat" picture I feel.

The shapes give this image a nice primitive feel.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Larry, these sort of things always sem to make intersting shapes and patterns.
