August Photo Challenge Day 3: Round

Today’s challenge was “round”. It really took me a long time to figure out what I wanted to do. I took pictures of eyes, wheels, balls, and bubbles, but nothing really clicked. Until I asked my oldest son to go get his marble collection. These marbles belonged to my grandfather and are stored in a gallon jug. They’ve probably been in this same gallon jug for twenty years, or more. I got so many great pictures, I couldn’t pick just one for this post. I actually had a hard time narrowing it down to four.



These two were my favorites. I just loved how bright the blue shined.

Did you ever play with marbles as a kid?
What color was your favorite marble? Can you still picture it in your mind? Do you still have it?

Think about the marbles I’ve shown here. Who do you imagine plays with them?

Leave me a comment and let me know what you think!! Can’t wait to hear from you guys!

Love and Photo Fun!

Becca 😉

      That was my son’s favorite!! He’s holding it there. I’m holding the first one; it was my favorite. My nail polish is about half chipped off though, so I had to cut most of my hand out, lol.

    I’m afraid I have a rather unhealthy collection of marbles. (About five jars worth) Love them. I love the last photo Becca; your photography is getting better and better!

  4. we used to have a lot of marbles. boys would play with them. i never learnt the rules. there was something about rolling them to a certain distance, and then trying to roll yours farther, and then trying to hit the others’ marbles out of their track. different points were rewarded for those “achievements”. my favourite marbles were the clear ones, like the blue ones on your photos. and i also loved those that looked like having small bubbles of air inside 🙂
    i don’t see many children playing marbles nowadays, it seems kids are more often in front of PC screens than on the streets. maybe they still play, just my routes don’t cross theirs. that’s because my daughter is still 3, and when she turns school age i’ll be more competent of modern street games for children 🙂
    You have wonderful ideas and make great photos! Way to go, Becca. I enjoy your work a lot!
    Best, M.

      Thanks for stopping by Mariya! My little ones are 3 and 1 so we don’t play a lot of games just yet, except Candyland, of course. 😉
