Circles are divine

“The horizon of many people is a circle with zero radius which they call their point of view.” Albert Einstein

I suspect most people love a circle. Somehow we can't resist them. In the past medieval scholars, and many others believed that there was something intrinsically "divine" or "perfect" that could be found in circles. 

Needless to say I have a collection of circles. 

Here are a few.

Pink flower.
Glass detail on a tombstone in the Cimetière de Montmartre.
Plum cake.
Glass candle holder.
Christmas lights.
Metro chair, Villier Station, Paris.
Blue moon, garden of  Le musée du quai Branly.
Leaves through a bubble.
Café table.
Thistle in Donegal, Ireland.
Thistle in Le square Léon Serpolet, Paris 18th.
White flowers through a bubble.
Dandelion clock.
Kugelhopf mould, marché aux puces de St Ouen.
Parisian cats eye.
And last but not least, the Tadao Ando Meditation Space, UNESCO Paris.
