52 Weeks Of Donna's Life

Donna's Photo Challenge

7. Circle in A Square


While on a recent trip to the Pittsburgh, PA area, my husband and I stayed in a hotel catering to business travelers. All the connections and Wi-Fi were available in rooms and work areas. The theme depicted throughout the hotel decor was that of making one feel at home. Lots of circles were replicated in towels, bedspreads, lamps and fixtures. Most of the wall hangings throughout the building tied into the subject of “circles” thus depicting the idea of the family circle and the circle of life highlighting the importance of those areas of our lives. Some very nice thoughts were conveyed for those who would be making this space a temporary home away from home.

The Breakfast Room contained several colorful groupings of “circles within squares” and were reminiscent of many quilt patterns I have seen.

A grouping of four "Circles in Squares" was in the hotel's Breakfast Room.

An enthusiastic amateur photographer, I enjoy picturing the events, people, animals and things in my life. And so joining in the "52 Week Challenge" of interpreting life through a lens sounds as if it will be a lot of fun -- presenting my view through the lens and seeing how others in our photography group interpret their views concerning a given subject.

  1. They do look like quilt patterns, don’t they. I have several of my grandmother’s quilts with similar patterns.

  2. I thought quilt before I read your write up. Nice presentation for the theme.

  3. Interesting ida for the hotel decor. I like your presentation of it too.

  4. Very nice arrangement. It just wouldn’t have the same impact if it were just one circle would it! But in an arrangement of 4 it’s very nice!

    • Thank you, Mindy. The repetition has an impact even though each circle has a different pattern. There were other arrangements of nine circles but they did not have the same effect.

  5. you can’t do better than that!!!

  6. I like the colors and simplicity
