A wagon wheel on a trash pile on a farm in central Alberta. This was one of my first attempts with hdr and it really brought out the detail in the wood.
One can find beauty even in trash.
I would guess this is a circular composition with a wheel as the subject matter.
Jeep Wrangler Art Print from an Original Watercolor Painting. Dark forest green with a tan convertible top, muddy & happy! This model vehicle, having been off road & covered in mud, earns a high score on the "Jeep Wave Hierarchy".
Are you familiar with the Jeep Wave? More points are scored for the dirtier your Jeep is & the less protected the occupants are from the elements. Points may be subtracted for Jeeps that are sparkling clean & look brand-new.
When jeeps cross paths, the driver with the fewest points initiates the wave, lifting a few fingers from the hand on the steering wheel. The driver in the other jeep returns the wave. It's a Jeep thing!
This was a commission painting, a wife's gift to her husband to memorialize his favorite car.
1959 corvet steering wheel and instrument panel. This car belongs to gentleman in Nipomo, California. Nipomo is located in San Luis Obispo country just north of Santa Maria and south of the city of San Luis Obispo.
The interesting thing about this is he sister has an almost identical car!
I caught them as they were just getting back from driving them in the Elks Rodeo Parade in Santa Maria and they were kind of in a hurry so I was only able to capture a shot or two.
I had someone comment on a photo of Atlanta's Skyview, saying he always parked near the wheel so he could find his car easily. I replied by warning him to be careful where he parked. I took this shot at the same spot and time I took the photo he commented on...
A Ferris wheel, named after George Washington Gale Ferris, Jr., (sometimes called a big wheel, observation wheel, or, in the case of the very tallest examples, giant wheel) is a nonbuilding structure consisting of a rotating upright wheel with multiple passenger-carrying components (commonly referred to as passenger cars, cabins, capsules, gondolas, or pods) attached to the rim in such a way that as the wheel turns, they are kept upright, usually by gravity.
The original Ferris Wheel was designed and constructed by George Washington Gale Ferris, Jr. as a landmark for the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago. The term Ferris wheel is used generically for all such structures, which are now the most common type of amusement ride at state fairs in the United States.
Since the original 1893 Chicago Ferris Wheel, there have been nine world's tallest-ever Ferris wheels. The current record holder is the 167.6-metre (550 ft) High Roller in Las Vegas, US, which opened to the public in March 2014.
This capture was made at a local carnival in Pasadena, Maryland. I digitally added the moon for composition and artistic enhancement.
Rockland Grist/Cotton Mill (built c. 1806-1830) 2201 Old Court Road, Brooklandville
The town of Rockland grew up on the side of the Falls Turnpike, which opened in 1806. Rockland included a general store, a tavern, a blacksmith shop, a carriage house, several log buildings, a group of stone row houses, a mill, and an 18th century dwelling.
Rockland Mill was constructed by the Johnson family as a grist mill to grind farmers' grain sometime between 1806 and 1830. It was converted to milling cotton in 1830, and a stone dye house was also erected. In 1836, the Maryland Print Works Company was incorporated there to print 1-, 2- and 3-color calicos. This was an innovative process for the time, though not a financial success.
Following a fire in 1857, numerous firms and individuals owned the Rockland Mill, and it has been rebuilt several times. In 1927, William Fell Johnson bought the property, bringing it back into the Johnson family. It is now used as office space for small businesses (Rivoire, Miller).
Perhaps its most famous occupant was actress Dorothy Lamour, who during the late 1950s and early 1960s operated Lifetime Inc., manufacturers of a food preservation additive, with her husband William Ross Howard. She also operated Dorothy Lamour Enterprises Ltd. Products, which produced Dorothy Lamour Bread and a jewelry-cleaning solution from the mill.

The area was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1973, and underwent restoration in 1982.
A digitally manipulated view of a boat steering console at CBMM (Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum) on Maryland's Eastern Shore town of Saint Michaels. I added the view outside the windows and enhanced the red light in the window as well as textures and vignetting for a more artistic depiction.
A wooden wagon wheel mounted on the support of the blacksmith shop in Historic Jerusalem - Kingsville Maryland. Blacksmith Shop circa 1800 - Items such as iron parts for the mill, farm utensils, and horseshoes were made here. Today, a cadre of local blacksmiths demonstrate their skills and hand forged items are available for purchase in the Gift Shop located in McCourtney's Store.
I visited Antietam National Battlefield, scene of the bloodiest battle in our Civil War, in October of 2016 .. I've been here before. Years ago I was a parent chaperone for one of my son's high school field trips. That was my first visit, or so the rational side of me said. Something else in my heart said differently.
This old wagon sits alongside the road on the way to the top of the hill where you will find the Skyview Motel. It is located just a little more than halfway between the cities of Santa Maria and Santa Barbara in the central coast area Santa Barbara County, California in the unincorporated city of Los Alamos.
Situated in the heart of the Santa Ynez wine country, the motel is aptly named as it offers fantastic mountain and vineyard views.
Here is how the owners describe the motel.
Since 1959 -
Skyview - an iconic roadside motel turned boutique luxury, offers 33 guest rooms, a full-service restaurant, a heated pool, and a working vineyard. Perched on a hillside overlooking Santa Ynez wine country, the 5-acre outpost merges mid-century style with modern rustic chic
