What am I?

I came across this today and knew it'd be a great What am I? quiz. If you want to cheat, the image metadata includes a hint. Maybe. 😉

As always, I'll keep any guesses private until I reveal the answer in a day or two.

I thought for 2 days after Martin pointed the quiz out to me. None of the things I imagined were barrel hoops. Good one! 😀
