March Square | Circles

This is one of those photos that shows the use of patterns in the composition of an image – adding depth. Even more interesting is the use of a focal point where you break the pattern and it is even more interesting to the eye (remember the rule of thirds?) if that break is on one of the intersections.

And it just happens to feature round objects. Red apple anyone?

If you fancy a distraction from the weather this month then join in with Becky’s (“A life of a 40 something”) March challenge of square photographs with the theme:

  1. Squared Squares’ – think multiple squares and squares within squares
  2. Squaring the Circle’ – the perfect post will be a circle within a square

March Square | 21st March

Published by


I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. Thirds, quarters, circles! Stop bamboozling me, woman! 🙂 🙂 I can only eat cooked apples normally but I do love the odd Granny Smith’s.

    1. But cooked apples don’t keep their shape! Unless you bake them whole of course. I have been known to do that in the past.

    1. I used to love Granny Smiths, but only the South African ones as others had a tough skin. Now my favourite is the Pink Lady. Crisp and juicy!

      1. Granny Smiths used to be a favourite of mine too, and then I moved on to Braeburns. I’m not a fan of true red apples – I don’t really like the texture of them, they are not crisp enough. At the moment my favourites are also Pink Ladies, funnily enough.

  2. Lovely photo. I look at Granny Smiths and think apple crumble. Thankfully the evenings here are a bit cooler and hot desserts more appealing.

    1. Really? For some reason I thought the cultivar originated in England! She must be a fair few greats down the line, but may explain your green fingers 🙂
      And yes, the label (well spotted) could be a focal point on its own.

      1. Could be local pride both ways, but she was supposed to have “created” it a block away from where I grew up, which was a few blocks from my grandfather’s. Her ancestry may have originated in England!! Probably did.

        1. Looking her up on Wkipedia (that totally true website) she did originate from England. “The Smith family migrated to New South Wales as free settlers under the NSW government ‘Bounty Scheme’, arriving in Sydney on the Lady Nugent on 27 November 1838. They settled in Ryde”

      1. I suspect there are a lot of Australians who are related given how few families there were in the early days of settlement.
