Thematic Photographic 46 - Round


Droplet
London, ON, April 2009 [Click to embiggen]


This week's Thematic Photographic goes simple. If it's got a curve to it, I hope you'll share it. Simple as that. Are you in?

Your turn: Thematic Photographic is a weekly activity designed to let us explore our photographic boundaries and share in the results. I hope you'll play along, as it's great fun! The rules, such as they are, are as follows...
  • Every Wednesday evening, at precisely 7 o'clock Eastern, I post a new Thematic Photographic entry.
  • Each entry has a unique theme. This week's is...round!
  • You post a similarly themed image over on your blog.
  • You paste a link to your entry in a comment here.
  • If you've already posted something that fits (on a blog, Facebook, MySpace, wherever) simply post the link to the existing entry. Old or new, all photos are welcome.
  • You may post as many photos or links as you wish. For the next week, I'll be supporting this theme with a related picture/posting each day. I encourage you to do the same. This is all about sharing, so feel free to share to your heart's content!
  • Please share this link with friends, too, and encourage them to join in. The more, the merrier.
  • And please accept my thanks for your enthusiasm. Your participation has made TP a true highlight for me each and every week.

Lol : Round rather aptly describes the person in 3 of the photos in :

That post is a month old though, I'll have to hunt around for something new.

(PS I groaned when I realised what word I put after "hunt")

That... is such a cool shot! Delightfully simple, and artful in its simplicity. No complex arranging, staging, any of that... just a drop of water on fabric.

Two words: Mag. nificent. And black and white is the perfect choice to display it. Even that's simple.

I was a bit more pedestrian than artful I'm afraid, but it's that time of year...

Thematic Photographic 46.1: Round v.1.0

kenju said...

Lots of surface tension there, Carmi!

Pagan Sphinx said...

My "round" is a museum piece by an American sculptor. Hope you can check it out.

I'm in. And coincidentally I just used a photo for a brand new meme that started today. It's called Think Green Thursday. I am going to leave this comment and go and put that picture on a post for Thematic, right now.

mamie said...

I've put up a few round things at Can I Do It?. And BTW that rose photo is exquisite. The drop too.

Shey said...

Awesome shot!

My first time to join.

Nice shot, Carmi! I'm in....http://ups-and-downs-with-anastasia.blogspot.com/2009/04/thematic-photographic-46-round.html

Round. Or Circular. Or an orbit.

I have a picture of something that's more of an orbit, and I have been curious about it.

VERY cool shot!

Here's mine:

Talitha said...

This is a great shot, Carmi. Lovely design.

Catherine said...

Two round things from my photo collection here - one natural, one man-made

Elisabeth said...

Interesting abstract concept Carmi.

Love this theme. A person could shoot for a year and not run out of subject matter. Decided to pick several random antique round things and arrange as a poster.

That is simply beautiful...simple but powerful! I'm going to try and get something up for this weeks theme...wish me luck! :D

lucy said...

I had to look twice...at first I thought it was just a round cookie cutter. Oh my, how wonderful a shot! Mine is posted and not near as creative.

Pamela said...

I'm up HEREwhen I first looked at your photo, I thought it was a ring or something sitting on something.

I am very impressed with that drop of water!!

photowannabe said...

I'm in Carmi. Come visit my post for Round.
I think this will be a fun theme.

Laurie said...

Nice composition. Simple indeed but definitely not lacking interest. Well done.

Amanda Guthrie said...

janie said...

MorahMommy said...

I wonder who's wife pointed out the water drops and suggested you should get out your camera. :-p

You see I don't always walk away when you take pictures! :D

Pamela said...

Oh Carmi -- I couldn't help myself. I posted another entry to your meme: round bird

photowannabe said...

Love the water drop and couldn't help myself. I posted another picture for round. Come and see my "maters".

momemts in time said...

Sorry it is late again but here are some 'round' images...

theMuddledMarketPlace said...

Round eh?
Well, my first is a naturally occurring phenomena that stares at me each year. I glare back.

My second is here, a gloriously round beauty that smiles at me each and every year and I smile back.

Lin said...

Enjoying your blog, Carmi. I've got another one...http://ups-and-downs-with-anastasia.blogspot.com/2009/04/thematic-photographic-46-round_25.html
