Challenge #363 "Circles"

Geometry again! Show us your circles....things in the local sewing circle....crop circles....bubbles.....anything to do with circles!

Some examples attached

The thread will run to midnight (BST) on Thursday, September 14th. I will be flexible about time zones if need be.

The Rules

1. Post ONE photo (max 1024x1024).
2. The photo must portray an interpretation of the theme.
3. Post your single picture in this thread and explain what motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly theme (especially if it's not obvious).
4. The challenge is interactive. Any response is welcome.
5. The judge will pick the WINNERS and choose one of them to be the judge for the next week.
6. This challenge runs for 7 days plus an additional day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Any Pentax (or Ricoh DSLR ) camera can be used.
8. Pictures can be from any time frame, not just within the week of the current theme.
9. In case the winner of a challenge is unable to become the judge for the next challenge, then the winner will PM the #2 winner for that person to be the judge.

Found this rusted float on a beach near Jacksonville, Florida. It begged me to shoot it with a fish-eye.

This is a Wholesale company in Sousse, Tunesia selling all sorts and sizes of pipes.

Unfortunately I could not get all of them on the photo without being run over by a car

But at least, lots of circles.

the lens.

This is a photo of the flashlight (multi LED one) reflecting on multicoloured surfaces of glass elements of the lens. And it is also circular.
