NO BEGINNING NO END
as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be with all parts equidistant from the centre—I give you (SFX: drum roll here, please) my offerings beginning with (gulp) ‘circles within circles‘:
okaaaaay … some of our circles may look a little flattish here, and lumpy; and all of them three dimensional which a pedantic type might consider a bit beyond the scope of the Challenge; but they are still circles. Sort of. It’s all perspective, really.
Moving on (don’t let it bug you)—
—can’t see your circle?
SO YOU’D LIKE A BLATANT
circle, huh? Try these on, as seen from a guzzling position at a table in ‘Global Bytes’ (coffee place in town)—
—where this year the Xmas freebie to beloved customers was shortbread, and very nice too. (Last year was Lammingtons (hope I spelt that right) and they were absolutely to die for) …
are everywhere. A ‘sitting duck’ target, you just can’t get away from them even when you think there are none. What could be more square(ish) than a brick, huh?
Thank Gods there are no blasted circles in that shot, the blessed relief from the tyranny of the circle!
It’s all in the eye of the beholder anyway. Some folks can spend an eternity peering out at the world with unblinking gaze—never stopping to consider how many unseen circles there are; all around us but unseen because of perspective. C’mon then—you’re so clever: does a circle cease to be a circle if you look at it edge on? Hmm?
Or might we then have to redefine it?
So is geometry really all just a matter of perspective? (OOPS: beam me up Scotty—I think I’m falling off the edge of the world.)
Then let’s change the subject with a shot to cheer up folks in chilly parts of the world right now—
—being cropped from a shot I took in Gore some months ago. The circle?
They’re in there …
