Theme Day: Circles/Spheres - Fangio's Wheels


Once again it's Theme Day. Today's Theme is Circles/Spheres and here you see the steering wheel of the late, great Fangio's Mercedes-Benz. It's a sculpture that stands on one corner of Port Hercule in Monaco. As you see in the smaller photo - the centre of the wheel features the famous Mercedes-Benz logo.

Juan Manuel Fangio was Grand Prix World Champion five times in the 1950s. (Click on the link to see the entire sculpture).

Bloggers from 187 different cities around the world are taking part in today's Theme and will, I know, interpret this theme in a myriad of fascinating ways. Click here to view thumbnails for all participants.

This is a very original choice as it's so much part of your daily photo area. Excellent choice and narrative too.

So essentially Monte Carlo (I can say that with authority now that I've been following your blog; makes me so worldly and glamorous!)!

What a great choice Jilly - when I grew up everyone knew about Fangio, and what a perfect circle for today's theme.

Yesterday's portrait of scouts and guides is excellent and I LOVED your story about you in the press stand. You're doing really well Jilly!
