Monthly Photo Challenge: Circles

The theme for February was 'circle(s)'. Again I struggled to get started on this but once I started looking properly I found loads ... apologies for the long post! 

Around town ....

In the café ...

At home ...

The challenge is to take photos on the set theme; the photos must be taken during the month (no archive photos), a minimum of five photos but no there's no upper limit, and there will be a new theme every month. 
The theme for March is 'beginning with H' and I'll post a linky at the end of the month  Have fun! 

Thanks to everyone who has taken part in the February challenge. Here's the linky  .... please link to your challenge post, not just to your blog.


  1. What was the circle of fifths homework? It sounds interesting.

    So many circles!

    1. Initially it's just to refresh my memory on all the key signatures and root position chords. Playing only treble (single) line instruments I'm really rusty on the theory of chords so the circle of fifths is just part of that familiarisation.

      Circles turned out to be an easy subject! xx

  2. You did well discovering all those circles. I know it sounds daft but I'd love to have a round window in my home :)

    1. Thanks Eileen. Not daft at all ... I'd always wanted a round window as well so was delighted when I saw that this house had one 😊

  3. Oh, I love all your circle photos! The drain cover, with a heart in the middle, is my favorite! I need to finish up my post and then, I'll link it. :)

    1. Thanks Bless. That's the British Kitemark (denoting a product's service and quality standard) and I've never thought of it as anything else, but you're right and it does look like a heart. Looking forward to seeing your photos.

  4. We have quite a lot of overlap this month! Yours are, of course, lovely. Will try and post mine tomorrow. X

    1. Thanks Lady E. Look forward to seeing yours x

    2. Forgot to say that my faves are the lampshade and the Clarks' sign. But specially the lampshade!

  5. Thank you so much for the challenge! It has been a real help for me. I loved looking through your pics just now. They are quite an inspiration to look at the world differently. I love the picture of your picture in the dining room. It looks so inviting.

    1. Thanks Lyssa. That's the thing I like about scavenger hunts like this, because it does make you look at the world more carefully.

      That's one of my favourite pictures.

  6. Such a lovely lot of circles! I must admit I really like the tea cake one just because I'd love to have one lol

    1. Thanks Sharon. I had a blueberry muffin but really wished I'd had the teacake when I saw it ... it was huge!

  7. I do like Taylor's View sign & oh those toasted tea cakes make me hungry, but the favourite is the painting in your dining room.

    1. The artist is Sam Toft and I 'think' mine is called A Walk on the Beach.
