You have a wonderful talent for finding interesting posts for these memes. Fantastic shot as usual. Have a wonderful weekend.

Tire-tread necklace? A great shot whatever you want to call it.

B Squared said...

That is some serious wire on the post.

Small City Scenes said...

Great shot and great title. And an interesting 'post'. hahaha!! MB

Anne said...

Or a American statue???

Kitty said...

Such an interesting shot! Wonder what the story behind it was?

There are plenty of those in the port where I took my pictures - used as fenders. Somehow I don't think a boat is going to moor against your tyre.

James said...

Makes me wonder about a terrible road accident, but it makes a good shot.

You can even make a dead tire look good. Wonderful.

The Explorer said...

Tire/tired...what an interesting combination and the idea behind it.

PERBS said...

Good play on words!

Marie Reed said...

I love the gorgeous grit to this shot!

We have these old tires everwhere out here, often with no trespassing signs and used as signs.
I never considered them photoworthy.
Wow! Very clever. I like it!

Yes indeed, "tired."

RuneE said...

A very fine example of how it should be done - a composition by the book, and you have stopped in time. With a perfect title.

PS And a fence... :-)

Liz said...

So many different textures and in such a small space! Well done.

Daryl said...

Perfect!

Pagan Sphinx said...

Who would think that an old tire slung over a post would make such a striking photograph. Your treatment always seems to do the trick.

The picture reminds me of the game of ring toss, only this game might be tire toss.
