I was thinking about the Olympics(who isn't?) but that entails too many people shots, so I think I will go with Rings.
This can be circles or in fact anything based on round shapes.
Yes Rings is it!

What a pity I didn't photograph all the cows I saw recently in Auvergne. They all had bells on theie necks, and were ringing away merrily in the mountain pastures ...

Guess i'll just have to think of some other rings ...

This should fit both themes smile The Olympic Rings on my red mittens! These were produced for the Winter Olympics in Vancouver, but I have seen some on Canadian fans in the crowds in London!

I have posted moon gates before, but not this one, in a local park. It looks like it is a mirror but you can walk through to an equally lovely garden

How about the real Olympic rings?




I was round the back. At the front there was a huge queue of people wanting to have their photo taken with the rings, hence in my pic you only get silver rings and there is someone you can't see holding up the Union Flag, lol.

These are five rings I use for the joining rings magic trick. Please don't ask me to demonstrate it, it's been many years since I've performed.

Here's an O-ring I found on a tree in the gardens of the Chateau de la Vigne (France):

Wow, nice photo of the moon. My piddley litte camera can't focus in that good. All I get is a yellow blur!
