Saturday Snapshot -- Tire Frame

To participate in the Saturday Snapshot meme post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post on Alyce's blog At Home With Books. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online.
I tried taking an artsy photo when I was at my Mom and Dad's house in Florida. Then just last week I saw one similar to this in an art gallery. I must have been on the right track, idea-wise anyway.
This is a tire swing at Mom and Dad's house. I think I would be afraid to swing on it because it's bound to have snakes or fire ants or something Florida hiding inside it.



If you haven't downloaded my novel, The Summer of France, it's free today on Amazon for Kindle. If you don't have a Kindle, you can download the free Kindle reader for your computer or smart phone or tablet. Here's the link for Amazon in the U.S., or Amazon in the UK. Thanks for spreading the word too.

I love the perspective on your photo....definitely artsy.

And the cover of The Summer of France is another gorgeous one.

Here's MY SATURDAY SNAPSHOT POST

What a brilliant idea! If I ever see a tire swing, I will have to try the same. Beautiful picture!

Thanks for stopping by my Saturday Snapshot post, too! :-)

I approve of this idea. I like the tire swing angle; it looks like a porthole shot. :)

I love this photo! Anything can make a frame if the view is pretty enough!

I wouldn't have thought of the critters inside. It makes for a very pretty frame for the background though!

Great idea - it's like a window or peep-hole to the view.

What an interesting perspective... looking out through a tire. Nice shot. I don't have a Sat. photo this week, just a review of a spectacle... The Great Gatsby. ;)

I wouldn't have been able to resist the tyre swing, and would never have thought of lurking snakes, just worried if the rope would hold.

What a cool shot!

It has a porthole look to it. I didn't realize at first that it was a tire. And I'd be wary of something Florida-ish hiding in there too!
