Here is my Gallery of roundness inspired by a word a week photo challenge-round
Once I started looking I found roundness everywhere, and I discovered that I definitely prefer curves to lines. They flow and just seem softer and easier to cuddle.
And as Meryl Streep said
“ It is well that the earth is round that we do not see too far ahead.”
Hi, I'm Seonaid, and I share my home on the shores of Loch Ness deep in the Scottish Highlands with my husband, my son and a couple of dogs. I love art which is here now and gone tomorrow...like food and nature...but also have a passion for vintage and the ancient past! Nature is my favourite muse, with her wild ever shifting seasons. I have been using and teaching mindfulness and relaxation for over 12 years, and have yet to become any sort of expert :-) I'm a Psychotherapist and Cancer Support Specialist in Maggies Highlands
Each shot is just gorgeous! And I love love the reflections in the church window in your previous post.
Very kind, thank you. I had great fun looking through my photos for ’round’ and once you start looking it’s everywhere 🙂
Thank you for your eyes in round. I am especially captivated by the photo of the Haddington Round House.
I love the way this shot turned out, and am so happy to hear you like it too. I must post the original sometime as its a really pretty shot too.
I seem to be having trouble posting comments to you,
running round in circles, so will just try replying to this email.
All your recent posts have been lovely, but these photos are
especially nice. As Im sure you guessed, i really follow your
groupings! Thank you. xx D
I’m so glad you’re enjoying the photos. I’m really enjoying the chance to share them with others….and to hear people’s thoughts. Thanks for visiting. Sxx
The dandelion seeds are my favorite. Reminds me of laying in a pasture on a warm afternoon as I gaze towards the clouds. When the sun peeks through my eyes close trying to shield the brightness from my sight but inevitably the response is not quick enough and I see the bubbles of color swirling and bursting until at last the fireworks fade and I open my eyes again to see them reappear in the captivating display that the dandelion offers.
Beautiful photo! Thank you
You’re very welcome. Your words have just transported me to a summer meadow, with bees buzzing in the distance and swifts swooping low and fast through the grass around me. I love to lie back and cloud watch when the weathers warm 🙂 but my favourite thing is to blow the seeds of the dandelion up into the warm breeze and watch them climb higher, and higher until they disappear into the clear blue sky above……ah dreaming of summer 🙂
Thanks @skinnywench for always turning me on to the most enlightening blogs!
Round grass planet, wow that photo is just so unusual and beautiful. A work of art in the capturing of beauty.
Very kind, thank you 🙂 If you’re interested you can see the original photo before it was turned into a tiny planet on my clouds post from last week.
