Time flies over us, but leaves its shadow behind. – Nathaniel Hawthorne
Well it’s about time. This post is four days late! Alas, life – with all of its fun and complications – has sucked away all of my time. And, with starting the process of building a new house, well, it looks like time is going to be very limited for the next few months. So many details, so little time. But enough! You’re here to have fun and try to figure out this week’s mystery “what is it?!?” picture, the 22nd this year. Four days late, but within the week! So do you know? Can you tell?
What Is It?!? – Week 22/52
What Was That?!? – Last Week’s Picture (Week 21/52)
I had a lot of fun with the guessing game here and on Facebook. So many fun guesses! Kathryn guessed, “Back of a lawn chair??” Not the back of a lawn chair. “Damn! I was pretty confident!” LOL Fabio mused, “Shadow on a floor at the patio? Missing your postings, dear Schelley! All the best to you and the family!” It is a shadow, but not on a floor. Great perspective though! That Montreal Girl stepped in, “Oh dear … lol” Giggles … Jude said, “This is a tricky one. Definitely looks like a shadow, but what on earth is that surface? I know you are the one asking the question. The markings look so uniformed it can’t be a plant leaf. No, I am going to have to come back and see if anyone else gets close.” Well, this is a tricky one. (Have y’all figured I’m tricky? ha ha ha) “Is it some kind of screen? Or fencing?” Not screen or fencing. So Fabio and Jude get one ding each for figuring out it’s a shadow. But of what? Over in Facebook land, “shadow of a deck chair?” “tiny glass beads?” “gold studs on fabric. A rug maybe?” “sesame seeds on a bun” “a shadow on a football?” “shadow of spatula over custard?” “shadows on a stone walkway?” It is a shadow, but not on a football, but part of your word fits (can you figure out this obscure clue??? “Basketball!!!” Not a basketball. “Damn” You might want to change direction? “A shoe!!”
DING DING DING! Yep, a shoe. My new shoes. I just happened to see this shadow in the car while we were traveling and I thought, what a great “what is it?!?” picture. And indeed it was. I love it when an image presents itself, I didn’t even have to look for it! 🙂
