Weekly Photography Challenge – Circles


Do you see circles everywhere?

The world itself is a circle, they naturally occur in nature, and man-made objects are full of them.

Weekly Photography Challenge – Circles

Your assignment for the weekly challenge is to actively look for them and photograph circles. When you train your focus, attention and eye on one thing you will see more of them than ever before.

Take a photo walk and see how many circles you can photograph!

Simply upload your shot into the comment field (look for the little camera icon in the Disqus comments section) and they’ll get embedded for us all to see or if you’d prefer upload them to your favourite photo sharing site and leave the link to them. Show me your best images in this week’s challenge. Sometimes it takes a while for an image to appear so be patient and try not to post the same image twice.

    Sorry, my inner nerd can’t help but comment. “The world itself is a circle,…” No not really unless you subscribe to the flat-earth theory. The world is a sphere, not a circle. ( I like your website none the less!)
