Old Tires

Tire reflected in old car

Who knew taking photos of old tires could be so much fun?  Well, it never ceases to amaze me how shiny some old vehicles are kept!  Gotta love the reflection, don't you agree?  And speaking of old tires being reflected...

Used for protecting docked boats - reflected

To enjoy reflections from around the world, visit James at Weekend Reflections HERE

Ah now of course I want to go boating! The old-timer tyre is fantastic!

Revrunner said...

So that's where all my old tires went.

GREAT Reflections!

Kate said...

Great idea; perfect ways to use old tires rather than dumping them in a landfill. I wouldn't mind owning either the boat or the car.

Bill Nicholls said...

The ones on the boat dock don't looks so good as the one on the car

A great way to reuse the tyres, love the reflections... and I covet that car!

William Kendall said...

Quite a contrast in tires! Excellent reflections, too.

I never would have imagined enjoying tire reflections . . but, you are right - this is nifty.

Gleaming Old cars are really a passion around here. There is a huge and still expanding collectors club that meets regularly. Their cars fill a huge parking lot, and people walk around and admire for hours.

It's clear they enjoy every bit of it.

Our fun comes in strange places sometimes.

Nice pic of the tires.

Tires amaze me. I found some old tires out in the middle of nowhere the other day. Not a road of any kind within miles but there they were.

nice catches!

There you go. Start a new meme: Old Tire Friday.

Karen said...

Great old car that tire is attached to. Nice reflections!

Stephanie said...

Great captures!

Karen S. said...

I did! I did! We have a few of those old tires to kick around here too, and it's kind of wheeling and tireless fun!

Sandra said...

both photos are perfect reflections. i am old and tired, LOL

Michelle said...

That old tire is like a piece of art!

Gail Dixon said...

Neat reflections, especially the first one. I'm glad you explained what the tires tied to the docks were for. I need to show that to my uncle to protect his boat.

That car looks mirror like!

Ginny said...

I love your reflections today! They are both beautiful and unusual. I like the yellow wire on that old car and well as the reflection. What a great way to keep the boats from getting scraped up!!

RedPat said...

They are a blight on the landscape so it is good to see them put to use. Love your car reflection, EG!

Mama Zen said...

The reflection on the water is so cool!

Linda W. said...

I really like the reflections in your first photo.

Okay, this can be another meme.

Gemma Wiseman said...

Stunning old car. The reflections give its beauty depth. And love the watery reflections.

Randy said...

Love the reflection in the first shot.

Those tires on the boat would work I guess. We have white rubber buoys that clip to the railings when we're on the water and then I get to throw them over when we dock (making sure they're still clipped to the railing...not that I would ever forget to check that. Oh no, not me ;>) (did not make the 'Captain' too happy~)

The old car tires are beautiful. They knew how to do it back then huh?

tres joli coups d oeil ;o)

Margaret Adamson said...

I just love the wheel reflection in its own car and boat reflections are always good.

Rose said...

At least the ones on those docks have found a new and useful life. And it is a great idea for them.

Ruth Kelly said...

Love that old car and its tire. Both are great reflection shots.

Viera said...

Great reflection....Stunning old car...
