Gearing up for a challenge

The theme of Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week is Gears and Engines.

This series I call Odd Twists meaning we are looking for the bizarre and the common things we don’t always take photos of.  This week the topic is Gears and Engines.  Cars and the gears of a clock are obvious for this week’s topic.  Let’s see how creative you can get on this challenge.
