Theme Day: Circles and Spheres

Can you find at least 16 circles in this neonized photo of Seattle's Wedgewood neighborhood Top Pot Doughnut shop? More than 30? Oooo, you're good! This tres chic west coast midcentury modern looking shop, complete with flood lighted palm trees, looks to be a converted 1950s/1960s gas station.

It's hard to tell but I count 29, 31 if you count to two zeros in your year date, 2008. ;~)

I found 32 circles. The tricky ones are the letter O in the restaurant name.

Kim, this was a fun and enjoyable post. Now I'm going to eat something sweet.

I'm with Denton - I need some donuts now! This is a great idea for the theme.

701,440 circles, if you count a pixel as a circle.

I'm not going to count, but rather just take your word for it and admire the photo. I love Top Pot doughnuts.....the sugar ones...

This photo is so cool! Fun to look for all the circles, too!

Helen said...

This is awesome, Kim. Would make an excellent Christmas card.

Seattle has it today. Chuck, my favourites and next this is just the most creative. It's a striking image that needs more than one viewing to fully appreciate it. I do love a visual quiz too. Top notch all round.

Very clever, Kim. I really like it. MB

Rambling Round said...

Excellent!

Jilly said...

My goodness, what a lot of circles and what an effective photograph for today. Amazing treatment.

Tash said...

Fantastic, Kim. Great photo (a donut drive thru never looked so good) & a fun-with-circles bonus too.

Ineke said...

Regardless of the number of circles (I only found 20), this is a fun photo to look at. I agree with an above comment that it would make a nice Christmas card.

Ben said...

Good point. There is surprisingly lot's of circles in ordinary scene. That's clever. I took my cap off.

Ooh, very nicely done! It looks Christmassy in these colours...and the circles are EVERYWHERE! Well done! Perfect choice for this month's theme.
