Using what is around to make a photo interesting is a solid trick when wanting to bring a little extra 'oomph' to a photo. "Framing" is an excellent way of using negative space or leading lines in a photo to direct the viewer's attention to the subject. It may take a little extra work to get the right perspective, but the results are usually worth it.
A trailer was in the process of being removed and the debris sorted into piles. One pile was wood, another trash, and (the one that caught my eye) an assorted metal pile with the door laying in an easy-to-reach spot.
This door is similar to one at my parent's house where I've seen my dad look through the window more than I can count. Seeing the door, naturally, my first instinct was to look through the window. Conveniently, the action was happening near the metal pile, so after jostling the door a bit to get it standing, it became a matter of timing to catch the bucket full and in motion.
