Circle Round

This week, I didn't really set out to take pictures of circles because well, I'm lazy. Also because I dropped my camera this summer and my lens is still falling off and I probably can't afford to replace it any time soon, which makes taking pictures annoying. But thankfully, I have a phone and also thankfully, circles are EVERYWHERE. Seriously, everywhere.

Like in my morning cup of coffee with my favorite creamer.


Or in the layout of this Veteran's memorial that I pass every single day, twice a day but have never visited. It's hard to see in a snow, but it's set up on a circular platform.

It was snowing, windy, and so cold that day. I had to walk through ankle deep snow to get out here, but what it took me to walk out there is nothing compared to the sacrifices made by the men listed on that black wall.

Unfortunately, after I took this picture, the weather started spitting ice pellets in my face. And although they are probably circular in nature, they are also not very fun to photograph, but I definitely plan to stop more and appreciate more when it's warmer.

Nice capture of the circle at the Veteran's Memorial. It's a reminder of what some gave for all of us.

You did such a good job with your circles and I love that you walked out to the memorial in ankle deep snow while appreciating the sacrifices of those who gave all. You rock!

And your lens is circular! Sorry. I do love each of your photos for dramatically different reasons... just beautiful.

I really love that 2nd shot. The things people have sacrificed for our freedom- unimaginable and I'll forever be grateful.

Are you running low on your stash of creamer yet? Hopefully they will get smart and bring it back before you do. :)
