Images posted in this thread are not counted as submissions. Follow the guidance Adam provided above to actually enter your images in the contest.

Also, please make sure your images meet the minimum image size requirements. Even then you should go as large if possible since smallish images rarely if ever get a significant amount of votes, much less contend to win the competition.

So, for this one you are looking for a simple machine with wheels, like the carts above that were mistakenly posted? I think that the term simple is up to interpretation. Just looking for clarification.

Any photo that includes a WHEEL will fit the theme... complexity doesn't matter... Basically the phrase "the simple machine" just says that a round thing that you roll something on can be considered one of the world's simplest machines.

If you click the SUBMIT link above in Adam's post, fill in the requested info and either attach or link to your image (in IMG /IMG tags) it will automatically go into the submission queue.
