When I saw Ailsa’s challenge this week, I thought I’d post a selection of international circles. Somehow, though, the exotic of my paradise isle sits uneasily with more pristine images from Italy and France so, once again it’s a Sri Lankan line-up. From the camaraderie of rugger practice to circles of fire, here’s a gallery of circles in response to Ailsa’s Travel Theme this week.
Check out Ailsa’s glorious macro of the purple workings of a flower and other circle entries here.

I don’t think you need to worry about your photos holding their own with others!
I was thinking more of tmixing oil and water, JM – an aesthetic problem I resolved by taking our magic carpet ride to Venice. But thank you dear, for the very kind compliment 🙂
I like your choices highlighting a different culture.
Thanks Lynne 🙂
This is a great entry for a circular challenge… I’m very impressed…
Thank you – I’m flattered :0
I really like the rugger shot. What a good nearly circle they’ve achieved, everyone’s in decent looking kit, ready to play, and the only one wearing long socks has chosen a wonderfully stripy pair!
I’m so glad you enjoyed the rugger boys Rowena! Somehow it seems a little like looking in on something private, as though they’re behind locker room doors, all crowding in and intently listening to their coach. Those stripy socks are cute, aren’t they? And I love the many coloured boots.

Brilliant selection of circles. Love the fire circle. 🙂
I think the fire dancers are a thrilling part of the Perahera 🙂
Beautiful circles! I especially like the “scented” one. I could almost smell those lovely flowers.
I’m so glad you could smell them Michelle – one of the most beautiful scents I’ve ever encountered, and of course, with their little orange tubes, just set to entice you to come over for a sniff!
Wow! Did it again, WG! 🙂
Had a nice ride, did you Amy? 🙂
Sure did. I’m taking another ride! 😀
Of all the elements, fire draws us in. As do circles… we want things to go the full circle, they look better arranged in a circle… as you have so beautifully displayed here 🙂
I do understand why the ancients thought they were magic. 🙂
This is awesome. It shows a burning passion for hope and change for the better. Happy Holidays to you and your family.
That’s so kind of you IT 🙂
What a great post, with such a wide range of photos in response to the theme, and each one a perfect fit. Powerful pictures, all.
Thank you Naomi. I think narrowing the focus down to just Sri Lankan circles made each photograph stronger – well I like to think so, anyway!
