Steel Spokes 11.15.14

Lines, lines, lines - both straight and curved - can be a strong elements for composition. This photo has plenty of them between the paver separations to the spokes to the curved lines of the tire rim and the frame.  Exploring the focus on the spokes though puts that angled combination of 'every-which-way', but organized steel in the forefront. 

Bicycle spokes are vital for the function of the two-wheeled vehicle. Their numbers and tension provide the support for the rim, but they also contribute to the alignment, which demonstrates their integral contribution. This is still somewhat one dimensional though as the movement only occurs with the interaction of the 'push of the pedal'. Again, the networking and interdependency of so many parts is critical for action and change.
