ABC Wednesday - R is for .....................

R is for............

a ripped rubber tire

This is a macro shot that makes something ordinary look abstract.

Do you know what the object is in this image?

The 'R' word is ripped, as that is what happened to this object.

Have you guessed yet?

I does look very familiar, yet it is something we never see.

I initially thought I would keep you waiting until the next post, but I will let you know.

It is a "ripped tire" - the tiny steel belts on the inside have been exposed and they have rusted from the weather.

Pretty cool, I think.

This is the sixth round of ABC Wednesday. If you would like to join in please visit this site for the details.


  1. cool!! I really thought it was the skin of lizard or crocodile or something like that..really.. :p

  2. Very cool. I wasn't even close in my guesses.

  3. To me it looks like a rock covered with dried grass !

  4. That is very cool! At first I thought it might be some sort of fungus, but then saw the familiar pattern of a tire. Nice shot!

  5. I knew exactly...after doing so much off-roading I immediately recognized tread!

  6. I agreed with Gattina.
    Very intriguing.

  7. I thought it was some kind of moss or grass! Wow, that is close-up! "Ripped" is a very good choice of R-word, intriguingly illustrated with this shot.
