(Two images) These cute little Johnny Jump Ups (wild pansies) signify the beginning of spring. … A very welcome sight!
Now if this challenge isn’t literally “right up my alley,” I don’t know what is. My blog, What Is It?!? – A Project in Perspective, is all about – yep, you guessed it – perspective! For this challenge, here are two different (and never before posted) perspectives of a former “mystery subject,” but this time, with the answer.
What you see is the side of a glass pane of an outdoor lamp. This subject generated so many different perspectives (aka “guesses”); if you want to see what all of the guesses were, check out the blog post here. This time around, I converted the images to black and white.

This arched window provides a natural frame of one of the buildings on The San José de Tumacácori Mission, the oldest mission in Arizona (established in 1691). I’m very blessed to have been able to see this in person, and this is one of my favorite photographs from that journey.

Whenever I get a chance, I take my 11-year old son, Ian, to the Lake Jackson Indian Mounds here in Tallahassee, Florida. This is my own personal refuge from the “real” world. When I was little, our mom used to take us there for picnics. I’ve been taking Ian ever since he could walk. There’s nothing more soothing than walking in the woods, hearing nothing but birds chirping, squirrels scampering up the trees, leaves falling, and the gentle rhythm of the creek water running. Ahhhhhhhh. Serenity!

It’s Monday, which means it’s time for a “what is it?!?” post! So without further ado, here is your ninth weekly “what is it?!?” mystery picture, ready for your guessing pleasure. Do you know? Can you tell?
What Is It?!?
What Was That?!? Last Week’s Picture (Week 8/52)
Jude mused, “Looks like golden shredded wheat all fused together, but I’m sure it isn’t that. Alternatively is it some kind of foam packaging material?” Not shredded what or foam packaging material. Interesting perspectives! Fabio pondered, “Schelley, it seems like a braided bread. I know it is not… “ Alas, not braided bread but I can see that! (Mmmmmmmm, bread.) Sarah guessed, “Ginger? The spice that is!” Not ginger, the spice. (Nor Ginger, the woman!) Mic’s perspective, “My first impression was that it was a close-up of a coin. It looks like gold but is more likely brass…a decorative dish or sculpture?” Not brass, not a dish or sculpture, but yes, it does look like gold! But it’s not. So what was it?!?
What you saw was a section of stained glass.
Last month I discovered a juvenile woodpecker that had become a regular visitor to our Bradford Pear Tree. Since then, I’ve seen the entire family of woodpeckers behind our house. Unfortunately, now that I’m “stalking” the birds, I have yet to see him/her in the tree again. However, I lucked out yesterday, when I heard this elusive woodpecker’s call and spotted him one of the trees out back. I had to crank my neck to get these shots! I do believe this is the juvenile. I would love to get a good shot of the woodpecker with the full red crown. Be sure to check out the visible holes in the tree branch.
