Three Corners~Circle in a Square

For the month of June, Lindy chose the theme "circles in squares." Going into it, I knew it was going to be difficult. As daunting as the task seemed, I was a bit excited to set forth in the hunt. I was pleased to find that even though I didn't see many circles surrounded by squares, I did look at my world in a way I don't normally do. As I wandered through my days, I kept a constant eye out for my prize. The challenge opened my eyes to the shapes of my world. I am grateful that this simple little exercise encouraged me to slow down....and look around.

The first circle in a square to catch my eye was something I see nearly everyday, but hadn't really noticed. The back end of a Jeep.

Then, one day while taking a route through town that I rarely venture on, I saw this sign. I thought it was a good choice for the theme...as fuel prices are such a hot topic these days.

Lastly, I resorted to getting creative. I had a few ideas rolling around in my head, but this is the only one I had time to pull off. It fits within the theme, but is sort of a loose interpretation.

Be sure to head on over to the other two corners of the earth (Jeanette and Lindy, and check out their finds for the theme.

You got some good ones and I especially like the last one, loose interpretation or not. I love that you/we can make a subject work when using a camera, whatever the topic. Good job!

Even though this one was difficult, I think it's created the most creative results!
