Abstracts: Wheel

A close up of an auto wheel

This week’s Sunday Stills challenge theme is ‘Metallic.’ See more responses here.

I’m not much of a car person. I like vehicles that are comfortable and reasonable to run. But mostly I look for reliability. But I know many people are really into cars.

Here on the island, we have lifted and lowered vehicles, cars with spoilers and go-faster stripes and other strange accessories. Tricked-out Honda Civics seem to be popular, but at the end of the day they’re still Civics, not Ferraris.

Wheels are popular spots for expression. I still think of hubcaps as round bits of shiny metal covering the wheel nuts, but those days are long gone. Hubcaps, or whatever they’re called these days, can be anything. The wheel in the photo had a jazzy, offset spiral thing going on. The irony is that many of these shiny, metallic pieces of auto art are not metal at all, but plastic wannabes.

      Ah yes, I remember the vehicles of Eastern Washington. It’s a bit different than where I lived in Western Washington and one of the ongoing tensions in politics there.
