Day 214 - Brake Disc

We've got a couple of folks in our company that drive to work on motorcycles. Occasionally I've looked at them parked in the carpark and wondered if I could take a nice shot of one but have generally discounted the idea since there are elements around that would ruin the shot (parked cars, for example). This lunchtime however, since the lighting was actually quite pleasant, I thought I'd do a close-up shot of an element of the bike itself. In this case it was the brake disc itself, for which I have cropped the shot a bit so that it perfectly curves around the frame. Given the slightly industrial nature of the shot I figured a conversion to black and white was a sensible idea and I've later added a toning effect.
