Subject matter
In this photograph, the smokestacks of a sugarcane factory tower over their immediate surroundings. A truck and a grouping of palm trees in the middle ground are all dwarfed by these four concrete and steel columns. A metal hook dangles in the upper-left corner of the photograph, seemingly unattached to anything and almost out of place.

Physical Description
A truck hauling sugarcane stops in front of a factory with a row of palm trees in front of it.
