Barry Donnelly: “This was taken on the River Tyne at Chollerford, near the site of Hadrian’s Wall in Northumberland, on a still summer’s day in 2017, the central arch and reflection in the still water creating an almost perfect circle.”
Atia Aslam: “Circles of a bubbly nature – a close-up of air bubbles that developed in a glass of water that was left to stand. The two bubbles in the middle of the picture looked like they were peering back at me through the glass.”
Stephen Sims: “A pier support under a wooden slipway in Southend-on-Sea, Essex. This is long exposure of the circle joining sections where struts are bolted through and the years of exposure to the sea have created a build-up of rust and barnacles.”
Paul Granahan: “I captured this sunset photo from the beach local to our accommodation, while on holiday with my wife in Minorca. The lens flare in the photo was intentional – honest.”
Elisa Decker: “This set of circles is from an ongoing series documenting how this motif changes over time. New York City.”
Gemma Lawrence: “Circles of love, made out of rock, the favours at my friend’s wedding in Brighton, which is known, famously, for rock.”
Lyndsey Thomas: “At the stunning Future Sketches exhibit at Artechouse in Washington DC, where the artist Zach Lieberman used coding to create digital poetry, a couple pose in front of ever changing circles, to create a somewhat supernatural sci-fi portrait.”
Jo Vanleuven: “In the streets of New York, people walking under a circle, in the early evening.”
Claire Hogan photographed sprouts on a stem.
Carol Burrow: “Barbara Hepworth’s sculpture garden, in St Ives[, Cornwall,] just invited you to look at her garden through the openings in her amazing sculptures.”
Robby Bernstein: “Circles of light, in an art installation in the Distillery District in Toronto, Canada.”
Lynsey Oxton: “This photograph was taken by me on holiday in Agia Marina, Crete. The shadows from the beach umbrellas cast a series of perfect circles.”
Richard Mortlock took this picture he calls Labyrinth in West Pinchbeck, Lincolnshire.
