Assignment - PCA 102

'Circles' by Abaranda

 

WIT - 'Drained'

I enjoyed this assignment. For the last two weeks I've been seeing circles everywhere, a few of which have made it onto Flickr.

 

On reviewing the shots, I kept being drawn back to the simplicity of this one. I know it's quite an obvious, even clichéd subject but, for me, there's something appealing about it. Despite the basic composition, I've counted at least 11 circles in the photo.

 

I reflected on the image again after the comment from Wes about the frame and replaced the photo today with a thinner border. It'll be interesting to see the thoughts of others on the framing issue.

 

Exposure: 1/125
