Walking in West Earlham, I came across this shattered bike. It was still attached to one of the two tubular rings which serve as stands for bicycles to be locked and secured to. Obviously car had mounted the kerb at speed and ploughed into them. The first stand got flattened and the unfortunate bike took a hit. I noticed the wheels were missing, and the hoops looked like substitutes. I thought it was a very unusual scene, . . So . Click! After isolating the bike and stands, I created new background with lots of green spots of various shades and sizes. Then I swirled the result which looked apt. Experimenting further, I sharpened the image, which distorted the colours and produced red tints. This looked like blood or a continuation of the bikes movement, which gives the picture a dramatic twist.
