Tires - Thematic Photography

I was surprised to find how often tyres appear in my photographic archive although not in a tired theme.

I'm old enough to have ridden a bike before pneumatic tyres were common place but I'll leave it to my daughter to demonstrate the hard variety on her bike.

There are occasions when tyres may bring a rider to a hard conclusion.

Don't worry! The rider's only n a scarecrow competition
New tyres on a new car are things to be admired as well.

But large tyres like this have to pass the smell test.

Lily and Scout make sure they are friendly
Some need to be a help in agriculture.

Sowing in progress
When it's too cold to work tyres may even take a rest.

Wheelbarrow awaits the spring
In some cases you only know where they have been by - 

The tyre tracks left behind
I'm pleased to say that when their working life is over, tyres may still provide fun for some.

Swing anyone?
If you are not too tired by now I suggest you swing over to see more at Thematic-photographic-364. while I ignore the red lines under tyres put there by the automatic spell check.

Quite a range of tyres there, Bob. There was a tree sculpture made of tyres at our local National Trust property last time I visited and we once created a flower pot from an old punctured tyre. Amazing what you can create when you put your mind to it.

Plenty of tyre photos to see here Bob. I had a trike like that when I was a toddler. The Scarecrow photo fooled me. Nuthin' better for a swing than an old tyre hangin' from a tree.

Terrific array of tyres there! Real lateral thinking, and great shots as well! Congratulations.
