Ruby Tuesday - Wheel

Ruby Tuesday 2  returns this week, and we become detectives as we look for red themed subjects - a lot or a little of this hue is all it takes. 

Last week's bicycle festival in Ansonia had more than just bike riders, there was art too. From the large mural to this painted wheel.

I believe it to be a wire spool that once held steel wire from a local wire mill. A unique work of art that adds and old industrial character in this industrial city. Some red here, the brick wall of City Hall with even more red...See rubies from all over at the fun RT2!

Good catch. I like the way we now have begun to see beauty and art in what earlier on was just everyday items. The post industrialism has made us recognise beauty in various designs.
Your wheel is one of them.

Agree there's beauty everywhere if we just look!

Great shot.

How creative to turn an ordinary, perhaps practical item into a work of art! Love how it's isolated but flanked by trees to highlight its creativity!

In the Duchamp days, this would have been called 'ready made art"! Perhaps today it still is. The red color did it for you - good shot!

Oh! I like that- I like to see things being reused-especially when they are made into art objects!
