Today’s photo, by photographer vxla (no real name given) on Flickr, focuses on a close-up of the fasteners on a bicycle wheel. It’s definitely not something anybody normally pays any mind to. But the photographer has certainly done some nice work playing with contrast and shadow, and finding an interesting if oft-overlooked facet on a common, everyday object. I also like the reflection on the metal bolt fastener there and how it contrasts with the plastic torlon piece. It definitely wouldn’t be as interesting if all the fasteners were torlon fasteners, aesthetically. It’s a really nice contrast if you think about it.
