Change Is Hard

…but change is certain.

Nancy’s photo a week challenge: Circles and Squares


Most of my photography is nature related. Plus Katie, of course. Not things that generally lend themselves to circles and especially not things that lend themselves to squares.

Still…I filed this challenge in the back of my head and pretty much forgot about it. Until I was walking Katie on the neighbor’s property this week and she was sniffing around the back of their old chicken coop.

And as I turned to call her I saw it.

All squares are rectangles, but not all rectangles are squares. Or is it the other way around?

The round kiddy pool propped up against the shed, with the square nesting boxes leaning there next to it.

Made me laugh out loud.

And then Saturday a friend and I were eating lunch at a restaurant and I noticed the big round lampshade against the grid of the black ceiling.

But the black squares didn’t show up well in my phone camera shot. And as I was putting the phone away, explaining to my friend why I was taking a picture of the ceiling, she said…

…”don’t you see it? Look at that other lampshade right next to the big white one.” And there were the squares.

So this week it’s a two-fer. And a lesson learned; if you just keep your mind and eyes open you’re likely to see the most unlikely things.

I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.

  1. I totally agree! Seeing things differently is always brought out for me with challenges


  2. Your friend is good–I didn’t notice the squares on the smaller lampshade, either! Such great photos, Dawn.


  3. Awesome! And that’s why friends are so important — they help us see what we might otherwise miss!
