Circles Within Circles - Exercise Two

Peaches and Mangoes

This exercise, number 2 on Five Self Assignments That Teach You To See, may have been too easy. Or I made it too easy by picking circles. They seemed to be just everywhere. Circles on top of circles within circles.

Duck Eggs Medium

I took the photo below before I began this particular assignment but was posting it today as one of my 365 Day Challenge and realized the water drops filled the assignment to a T or would that be O.

Water drops on cabbage leaf

Pots in the corner

Even cleaning up the studio/greenhouse I was surrounded by circles. It is re-potting time and I an abundance of pots filled and empty to photograph.

I will end with this photograph of a slice of a geode on a bone. Just how many circles do you see in it?

Can you count the circles?

I think I will redo Assignment #2 with another shape. Hexagons?


  1. Love the metallic look to the eggs photo...COOL!!!!!

    1. Duck eggs are grey and I could not resist putting them in a stainless steel pan.

  2. I love all of these especially the eggs. My mother used to say that life was a circle and one of her favourite songs was "All My Life's A Circle" which was so true for her.

    1. Windmills of my mind was one of my favorites. The grey duck eggs are finally getting eaten now that I am done photographing them. I think.

    2. Long time since I've had a duck's egg. I like 'Windmills of My Mind' too. Always was a fan of Michel Legrand.


I appreciate all kind comments on my art and poetry.
