On a wall of some eclectic little building that I used to ride my bike by quite often.

It's the same wall as this 2005 entry:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/401/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_261694.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/401/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_261694.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Thanks for the comment. However, this is the crop I had to use because there were other things hanging on the wall next to the red wheel that would have spoilt a wider crop.

Voted earlier coming back to comment.

Nice find with the red! I like how you made this a study in lines and curves by just having the top half of the wheel stand out against the red wood plank wall. I like the color and the texture you can see in the grain of the unpainted wood and painted wall of the barn. I think it would look even better if you upped the levels just a wee bit on the shadows - just to give a bit more contrast in the dark tones to let it pop more. My other critique is that I think the composition would be more visually stronger if you cropped it such that the arc of the wheel ends in the bottom corners in the composition (almost like a rainbow).
