The Brenda Photo Challenge - Circles

Today I'm jumping in on The Brenda Photo Challenge - which is anything "circles", sponsored by Donna. Click the link to see more circles.

These circles are the bottoms of glass bottles that make up some of the 50,000 that are cemented in the walls at an eclectic museum called Tinkertown, located in Sandia Park, New Mexico.









There are many other things to see such as the miniature carved figures that Ross Ward, the owner began carving when he was only in junior high. There is also a large memorabilia collection. Lots of odds and ends there!

Pat - - Those are really fun pictures. There is or was a place in GA called Finster's Paradise Gardens that is very similar with beautiful art from everyday items. We used to live within five miles of it and had visited a few times. As you can see by this link, it may or may not still be open.

Great circle shots. I was too slow and couldn't make a decision on this particular challenge.

Your photos at Tinkertown remind me of the Mystery Castle in Phoenix. Have you ever gone there?

Now my creative juices are flowing! maybe I should salvage all those beer bottle our "guests" toss in the dumpster and create a wall some where. He who mows will no doubt give me "the look" if I decide to share my thoughts with him!
