Nice one Richard. What kind of flower(?) is that?

Here's another round with reflections.

Thanks Crow...it's just a dandelion...rather closer than Joayne's shot!

I love your bit of brass!

Levina de Ruijter wrote in post #17180154 (external link)
That's a good one, Richard. Great macro!

Thank you Levina. They are quite amazing up close...all those little strands on each branch of the seed. No wonder they can wind-travel!

svizzerams wrote in post #17180288 (external link)
These threads are such a treat! Lots of beautiful and clever rounds. I had not seen the "planet" effects before. So many possibilities - it really is inspiring to be part of this :-)

Love your flowers Svizzerams! Beautiful!


Growing old disgracefully!

John: I was amused by the irony of that shot as well...well spotted!

Joayne...looks like an interesting repetition of shapes here...one ending up all soft and delicate, the other just the opposite, yet looking remarkably similar!

Funny, I was thinking the exact same thing when I saw the two images!

Jo, they are great!

Soft and delicate they are not!  :p They get stuck in your fingers and you can't see them to get them out

My landscape planets weren't exactly perfect so today I went to the harbour and try to do better, but somehow the 360º pano didn't result in a good mini-planet. Don't know why. So I only used the shots of the water and liked the outcome. I'm sorry for posting more mini-planets, you must all be bored with them by now, but I really like doing them and I would like to have some better results. But these are the last, I promise.

I totally missed your question here, Sibil. Sorry about that.

Levina de Ruijter wrote in post #17180165 (external link)
Making a mini planet is real easy.

Here is a link where it is explained very well. It's the tutorial that I used too: http://content.photojo​jo.com/tutorials/creat​e-your-own-panorama-planets/[/quote (external link)]
!

Thank you so much

Levina de Ruijter wrote in post #17180527 (external link)
I feel the same about the WWPW thread as you do. Everybody's work is inspiring and for me personally it is a great place to experiment and try out new things. I learned so much since I joined. It's great!


A big “same here”

Not here. I find them fascinating. I love the first one.

Well, I stumbled upon this massive winch at an old gold mine in the Colorado mountains. It was used to haul miners and ore up and down the mine shafts some 2000 feet underground over a hundred years ago.

There's some rounds bits to it... :-)

I've used this round object for decades to give directions to my East farm from the main highway. Located on the highest point in the immediate area and called the "big golf ball" by the locals it is a radar station. There never has been a runway here but it used to be a functional air force base. I was able to take a tour inside about 45 years ago and remember many round red and green lights on the screens that were tracking objects in the air. The grounds were well cared for back then but now the trees and grass grow tall along the tall fence. Everything is closed now except the radar inside the ball.

Have to agree with joayne on the " no smoking" signs in JohnB's photo, that's crazy!

Nice Rounds Grizz and Unbalanced!

Here's one I just couldn't resist after one of our walks this weekend. My ever-optimistic old dog Maggie always believes she can unearth a rabbit. She catches a lot of possums but rabbits continue to elude her, try as she might.

So this is Round twenty-seven to the rabbits!

Haha, "round 27 for the rabbits!" Those words and the pic made me laugh hard, Richard. Brilliant!

Steve, that is one giant golf ball and great for this week's theme.

Such interesting, funny and cool contributions by everybody this week!

Joayne - yes, those are dahlias - my neighbor is wild about these flowers and every year nurtures a veritable forest of them - so many amazing colors.

Levina - I'm not at all tired of your 'planets' - I esp. like the top one of the dock - brings back fond memories of my trip to Amsterdam - loved the narrow tall buildings. City has a wonderful ambience.

When I went for eggs yesterday, I discovered that the farm was also selling pumpkins.

The chickens didn't seem to mind.
