Stuff On My Roof

If you were to look on a roof where a child lives, you might expect to see the occassional toy or two. A tennis ball, a frisbee, maybe a toy rocket or something. Today I was idly gazing out of the window and noticed, on my garage roof, an upturned toy car. What could have happened to cause such a thing to arrive there? A terrible road traffic accident? Or the mother of all Hotwheels tracks?

At first I did a bit of post-processing on it. Increase the contrast, boost the saturation, that sort of thing. Then I threw it all away and posted it as is. I think the low contrast helps, rather than hinders, the composition and gives it a lovely bleak feel. Much like the weather today!
