Photo Challenge : Circles

Cypress Tree balls. Kind of look alien don't they?

Circular Sunflower center.

I snapped this shot yesterday of a balloon that escaped from somewhere. My mind said, "hey,,circle" so I grabbed the camera and SNAP. The first two shots were taken last summer.


Don't forget to pop over to the Challenge Blog so see all the wonderful entries for this Photo Challenge.

I LOVE image of the cypress tree balls! I've never seen them before and they are quite odd looking. Fantastic photo with great depth of field. You nailed it!

the cypress balls look like what we call 'brain fruit'.. not sure if that's the real name-- i highly doubt it- but that's all i ever hear it called. looks kinda like that, but if ya cut it open-- it looks just like a brain. i don't think they are edible though. i never tried to find out. i've seen them here- and in kansas. not sure about anywhere else.

anyhow-- love the shots-- the balloon is great-- you and i are so like minded it scares me :))

hope you have a terrific day !
the tornadoes didn't go that far did they? they said N. arkansas. hope you are ok.

SOUL said...

Are those tree balls for real? They do look alien. The sunflower is such a happy flower and love the lost balloon shot. Great uptake.

Carolyn Ford said...

Oh, I love that sunflower! And, how lucky you are to have had your camera when that balloon came floating by! Lucky you!

Jeanette said...

Those cypress tree balls do look rather alien, a little scary if you look at them long enough!

Wow. Can't say that I've EVER seen cypress tree balls. That's a first. Very interesting texture on those. I love, love, love sunflowers. And what are the chances that a balloon floats by? LOL. They all made me smile. Thanks.

Brenda, I have been hearing of terrible weather in your area.
Just a reminder that I will pray for your safety.

We are still here but too much sickness and our big family I don't get to the computer much.

Wow those cypress balls do look cool! Do they have anything in them? We had a black walnut tree at our old house and the shell was pretty wierd looking on those. Good going Miz Brenda! Hope your weather has cleared!
