To love beauty is to see light. – Victor Hugo
Yay! It’s Friday and I’m ready to leave work behind and focus on having some fun this weekend. Maybe, if it doesn’t rain, I’ll take my camera on a photography journey! To live in what is called the “sunshine state,” we sure have had a deluge of that liquid “sunshine!”
Today’s mystery “what is it?!?” picture is ready for you to guess. Can you tell? Do you know? I’ll even give you a hint: you don’t see this very often anymore. 😉
What Is It?!?
What Was That?!? Yesterday’s Picture (Day 192)
We don’t have any guesses to report, but we do have a story! Thankfully, Terry provided a narrative to go with the mystery picture. Enjoy!
It was the only evidence that the assassin had been there. A 17 mm hole drilled into the kitchen bench.
The kitchen window looked out onto a quiet suburban street and the house in clearest view belonged to Theodore Weitkamp.
That wasn’t the name on the letterbox though.
These days he went by the name of Evan Gerry.
Evan seemed like a nice enough bloke, at least that’s what the neighbours said when they were interviewed by the local cable news channel.
Theodore was one of the men responsible for the sub prime mortgage bank crisis.
He thought that he was safe, but the resistance group,’Payback’ thought otherwise.
He was only the first in a long series of assassinations that lasted more than four years.
The only clue left was this strange hole, freshly drilled.
Eventually the killings stopped. They never worked out who was doing it but every banker in the world walked carefully and looked over their shoulder.
Thankfully, in real life, our mystery object is an innocent subject. I bet just about every household has some of these. What you saw was part of a Dominoe piece. I photographed it sideways and then flipped the cropped portion.
