Making circles in the sky

.

Can you remember the last time you drew circles with a compass?
From many decades ago I remember the sharpness of the metal point and the pencil lead.


This giant compass welcomes workers and visitors to a hi-tech company, one of many on the sprawling campus of the Omer Industrial Park near Beer Sheva.


Linking to ABC Wednesday and to SkyWatch Friday -- making circles in the sky.  :)

Quite a sculpture! I haven't used a compass since math classes back in the day.

Always something pleasing about everyday objects transformed into gigantic sculptures, and a little humorous too at times. In the local Water Conservancy Garden here there is a pair of giant garden clippers with purple handles, about 12 feet tall I think. There seems to be no end of interesting objects for you to photograph as you make your way about your locale. It's only Thursday noontime here but I wish you an early "Shabbat Shalom" for tomorrow evening.

Great shots of the tools in the sky! I used drafting tools last year to make some patterns.

I love those old-school tools of the trade. I take in plastic lids for my students to use to make circles. Very low tech, but they work. Now I have to get to Jerusalem and Israel to see this sculpture!

I still have my compass set from school days, but confess I don't use it often.

Yes I remember in high school using one quite a few times. That's a BIG compass.

Art was just looking for a compass the other day and we couldn't find one. I used to have several. That is a very cool sculpture.
