Joy Riders

I know this used to be a car, because not too many hunks of scrap metal have number plates attached. However, without that you might be hard-pressed to identify it. The charred remains of someone's 'baby' lying abandoned in a city street just round the corner from chez moi. It's one of those occasions that makes you think... and shudder, one of hundreds of innocent voters' unfortunate vehicles that happened to be in the wrong place at the right time for those venting their wrath in the only way they chose to know how.

For me, this image required a harsh, high contrast treatment (I know, I know, I'm doing that all the time at the moment, but I like it!) to echo the brutality of the emotions and violence it represents. The composition's reasonable with a pretty classic example of puting the main subject close up and some nice sharp angles made by the burnt metal and stark green band next to the railway. Sobering.
