Dahlia – Sunday Stills: Why we should be wary of round objects

This week Hugh takes over from Teri and challenges us with:

Round‘ – I’m not talking here about circles, but objects that have a definite round shape.

I get hay-fever so anything that looks like this makes me wary!

I do love taking photos of them though!


Never mind the horse – One word Sunday Challenge: Round

This week Debbie has challenged us with the following:

Welcome to One Word Sunday, and over to all of you to join the challenge with your own round post.

Well I have a number of shots of the Moon but given that Debbie used that for her initial post, it is off to find something else round!

I could use one of the many stone circles we visit, but you might expect that by now, and they are never truly round, and this is probably no accident.  Should I go with circular or spherical? Both are round!

In the end I chose this.

Its in sphere – Weekly Photo Challenge – Round Things

This week Jenn at ‘Traveling at Wits End’ asks:

So this week I’m going to send you off on a quest to photograph round things. I’m specifically thinking spheres, but I’ll leave the challenge open for other round things.

This week, the challenge is to go out and…

Photograph Round Things

Well I did not have to go far in my quest for a round thing.  This ‘thing’ sits in my desktop organiser and looks at me as I type up my posts, and edit photos.  It was inevitable that one day I would photograph it.  It is not quite a marble, nor is it a ball.  It is a sphere within a sphere!

The inner sphere has an eye printed on it, is weighted, and is suspended in liquid within a larger clear sphere.  And therefore when you roll it along a surface the eye always remains staring upwards, giving the effect that it is mysteriously floating along a surface rather than rolling.

Colour in the round – Tuesday Photo Challenge – Round

Well this week Frank challenges us with the topic ‘Round’:

Well I just had to use a photo of one of the many stone circles we have visited, I hope I can get away with this for ’round’, as most stone circles are slightly flattened on one side, or ovaloid. This is not by accident but appears to be planned by those megalithic designers.
