This was one of those times during the weekly photo challenge that I didn’t have a plan for the current topic, or much time to even think about it. And the photo is “due” tomorrow.  So I went around the house in search of a circle.  Tried and rejected pictures of hair ties, wedding bands .. then, remembering the fun I had with Christmas lights, thought to go outside and take an unfocused picture of the lamp post in my front yard.  I flopped the settings on manual focus, zoomed the lens as far as it would go, and stepped back a bit.  I got my circle, and like the moody evening colors in the background.
