Imagination is the true magic carpet. – Norman Vincent Peale
I feel like I’ve taken a magic carpet ride with all of the sun and moon gazing I’ve done the last couple of days … and nights. While most were asleep in my “neck of the woods” (as we say around here), I was up outside, whispering many bad words at my telescope/camera contraption, while attempting to get it positioned just so. You’d think it would be easier to get this huge orb in frame. Ha! And then finally, there she was, Bella Luna, shining like, well, I’d say a “star,” but … she was all aglow. Magnificent craters were visible and I managed to capture some of those (look for another post later).
Today’s mystery “what is it?!?” picture has absolutely nothing to do with the sun or moon. Just like yesterday’s photo, this subject found me, the inspiration was just there! Let’s see if y’all can figure out what this is. Do you know?
What Is It?!
Yesterday was epic; I’ve never had so many varied guesses as last night, it particularly showed me just how vast our individual perspectives can be. How one item can look like oh-so-many different things. So, shall we go through the list of what this item was not?
It’s not the round part that holds bike gears, bubble wrap, shower head, garlic press, potato masher, colander, gold jewelry, costume jewelry, iron, it’s not laying on or mounted to wood, thinly sliced Swiss cheese, drain or the “thing” you put in the drain, part of a meat grinder or pasta making gadget, nor is it a French coffee press, receiver to an “old” type phone, speaker, dip stick in honey, rain on a screen door, it’s not oil, flowing liquid, salt water taffy, cat’s tongue, carpet pad, a tool, washing a car, nor a muffin tin, and we’re still going … bird feeder, condensation on glass (okay, it’s glass, but on what?), part of a wind chime, light house light, or plastic window. Whew, that’s a lot of guesses!
Drum roll … yesterday’s picture was an angled view of a glass pane in an outdoor candle lamp. As a matter of fact, I’ve used a different part of that before for a mystery “what is it?!?” picture. Does this look familiar?
