The Inner Life of Things: Road Roller

Some inanimate objects seem full of character, to have a kind of machine-consciousness. I felt like that about this small road roller, which I photographed in Coonoor, in the hills of south India.

I altered the photograph with a Lomo tutorial, and copied the background from a Soviet propaganda poster.
