Default Crircles making up circles

I really like this topic, and it was fun going back over the last couple of months and seeing just how many circles are in my pictures.

One taken yesterday as I was thinking about the subject:



This one I took 2 weeks ago, not quite as fitting for the topic:



My life features many of these circles, and things are getting out of hand at the moment.

Technically, Those are spirals, not circles! However, I like them anyway.

Mtngal,

Perhaps you need to go outside and smell some roses.
I like your photos.

LOL! Actually, the second one is my "to do" pile unfortunately.

But I have been smelling roses the last couple of days, Tuesday my other half gave me 12 red roses for our 31st wedding anniversary. So I've been taking pictures of them, of course. Thought about posting one of them for this challenge, but they aren't quite circles, more ovals.

Cal - guess I should have named this thread "spirals making up a circle" - what struck me with the first one is how the rolls, when banded together like they are, made up a circle. That's the picture I took with this challenge in mind. Then once I decided about that, I couldn't resist throwing in the second one, which I originally posted elsewhere with the title "Paper, Paper and More Paper - Drowning in Paper and Going Down for the Count" as I thought the picture captured my feeling of "oh dear, where am I ever going to put all of this?" helplessness.

Tight spirals look circular - it works for me!

Ooooh, that's just how I feel lately — going round in circles and seemingly getting nowhere! And yes, the paper pile on my desk is getter more out of hand.

Well done mtngal. I really like the concept.

Thanks, Walter!

Glad I'm not the only one with paper piles, Bernice.
