Autumn at Orianda House Water Wheel, Leakin Park, Baltimore, Maryland




The Orianda house water wheel was quite a feat of engineering. Although no longer operational, this wheel pumped water into tanks in the Orianda house attic. The wheel is enormous, with a radius of perhaps 10 ft. I composed this image so the leaf strewn path would lead the eye to the hub of the wheel, then outward to appreciate the wheel’s place in what is now a heavily overgrown area. Further, the autumn color adds a nice golden glow to the composition and contrasts nicely with the rust on the wheel.
