Oh! I love drilling curls....I've been finding them in by greenhouse after Jay drilled some plastic pails. Nice contrast of light, texture and line in this shot. Cloth makes me think of elephant skin/age, wood-tree/nature under man's influence, the shavings-labor, the tool in bottom left-man molding the physical to meet his needs....all together says much.
Glad Carolyn could identify the curls! I agree with her--quite a composition.
