Is This Really a Wheel?

It's all about perspective really. At first glance this is a lovely old wagon wheel covered with snow. Blink once or twice and let your imagination go crazy. You might still see a wagon wheel in your mind's eye, but now can you see where it has been? Can you imagine how it ended up leaning against the barn?

Perhaps your mind's eye doesn't even see a wheel anymore. Maybe you see something else like a gigantic spider web or even better.

Have fun! Go crazy! Tell us what you see!


Special thanks to Georgie and Tweedles for this photo!

I do believe I see a runaway ferris wheel. I sure ferris wheel cars must be scattered here and there throughout the forest and people are sitting on treetops while they await their rescue!

I believe it can even be what is remaining of an old flying saucer that was found in the desert.
I can just see it sailing through the air with lights on it!

The Pegasus Wheel had been assigned to orbit the small planet below over a century ago. Most of its crew members had been reassigned in the last few decades and only a small maintenance crew remained. One by one they had shut down the outer spokes until only the hub and a few nearby areas remained active. The Wheel was dying.

A contry sun dial. To mark the passing of the hours on the beautiful homestead.

I see the circle's in a square ghan I should be working on. lol

I'm still working on my scarf, so haven't touched the circle in a square ghan yet...though I did bring up the project bag a week or so ago from the shelf in the basement. That's a first step.

Hugs

I see the settlers of the Western states in that wheel. I see their journey and hardships. I feel their pain and taste their tears.

I see the centre of the Indian flag (the Ashoka Chakra) for some reason! Anyway to me the wheel signifies movement and progress.

I see what all of you see...once you point it out. Isn't the imagination wonderful?

The wind was tassling at the remaining few horse hairs near one of the spokes. Cracked and dried mud is still visable after the long
incredible journey.
If you look closely you can see where the wheel had been carefully mended using a blacksmiths tools.

Who were the dancers on the Jackie Gleason show years ago.. the June something or other?? They were a precision dance team. Well anyway, this is them an arial shot of the ladies dancing, and formed into a perfect wheel. June Taylor dancers that's it.
