Description Next to the discovery of fire, the invention of the wheel has been the most significant achievement in the development of human culture and civilization.

The horse drawn chariot revolutionized warfare, while the stone wheel of the gristmill made it possible to process enough grain to feed increasing numbers of city dwellers, and the oxcart provided transportation for people and produce. In the modern era, life would be unimaginable without wheels. America is truly a "car culture", and the rest of the world is not far behind.

How do you envision wheels in your own life? Maybe you're a car nut, a lover of anything that looks sleek and goes fast, from a Grand Prix car to a NASCAR racer, to a land speed record vehicle. Or perhaps you're more aware of other types of wheels, such as those on bicycles, baby carriages, or trains. And then there are Ferris wheels and pinwheels, skateboards and rollerblades. Conveyer belts and steamboats. The possibilities are nearly limitless.

Wheels is Darkroom Gallery's invitation to you depict your photographic discovery of the wheel. We're looking for photos that feature cars in any and all forms, of course, from the classic car to the newest zero-emission vehicles, but Wheels is not limited to cars; anything that moves or operates on wheels is fair game. This is your opportunity to show us what makes your world go 'round!
