Circles and Wheels: This week’s Photo Challenge from Cee Neuner.

I just had to do this one, for my friend Cee, who doesn’t live too far from me.  Circles make the world go round (see what I did there?), and trace the roughly-circular orbits of all the planets and their satellites.  Did you know that the ancient Egyptians did not use the wheel?  They found out about it from a tribe who invaded their empire around 3500BC.  I had fun going through my photos to find all sorts of circular references.

Ferris Wheels!  In Puyallup, Washington; the Santa Monica Pier in California; and the Great Wheel on the waterfront in downtown Seattle.


A rock formation known as a “cannonball”, at the Theodore Roosevelt National Park in North Dakota.


Coconuts at the grocery store.

Plates on the wall.  Found in the Asian casual restaurant aboard the Crystal Symphony cruise-ship.


The Chinese New Year display at South Coast Plaza in California.  Circles within circles.

Two views of a circular table I found in a hotel in California.


Circle within a circle.  My bird-bath in the snow, with its blue glass float frozen within the ice.


Perhaps the most important circular thing in someone’s life.  Wedding ring.  It’s a “mini-Moebius”.

And from Merrie Olde England, the circular tower and logo of Trinity Hall College, and the ancient Round Church in the old city of Cambridge.  I took these photos in the summer of 1991, when I was there on a UCLA summer course.

And the wheel of life goes round and round.
