Interesting! Nothing springs immediately to (my) mind, not even traffic signs!
Have to align brains and eyes and hope for the best.

Anyone got a bag of Blue Circle cement lying around?

This has my brain going round in circles, getting nowhere!

Haven't had time today to do anything, or think about it. Might go out tomorrow to see if I can get the blues somewhere.

Probable entry for the CC Blue and Round challenge:



The thought came to me as I cleaned my teeth this morning, when I spotted these two round blue things looking at me from the mirror.  :tup:

Tamron SP90 f2.8 with cheapo 2x close up lens.

Strobist: one Elemental FAN160B camera right. Triggered by PT-04.

First outing in anger with the PK-Tether software. A few glitches - need to turn off the Windows autoplay, and it will insist on storing images in the programme folder . . but big fun nevertheless. Made a donation as well as reported the glitches.

Other Pentax users, if you're looking in, this app works with all the Pentax DSLRs allegedly - You have to turn off the panel illumination on the K5, but the K20D and K10D work just fine. I was using a Windows 7 64bit laptop.

Gosh Howard, I've got two of those, and never thought of photographing them!

I actually went out this morning trying to find blue, round things; found a few, but not as interesting to look  into as yours! Must try harder.

And you're making sure this time, that the victory will be yours if you have to share points again. Very clever; I haven't got my brains into gear yet.

I got in fast because I know there are very few round blue things to photograph  :)

Actually photographed three blue round things yesterday, one of which was a balloon. Have to see if I can find something a bit more interesting. One of the things however, might look intriguing; I haven't had a proper look yet.
