Sometimes a ruin is well characterized by its smallest details. I’ve abstracted this wheel by using my spot meter to expose for the three highlights – everything else goes dark and is implied rather than described. I convert the image to black and white to further abstract it, and make more of a symbol of an age out of it. Its sleek design speaks of the 1930s. Although covered in heavy dust and untouched for many years, it seems ready to spring to life with a simple touch. For more of the same ruin of a car, see the next example in this gallery.
