Day 301/365 – Daily Discovery

Discovery consists of seeing what everybody has seen, and thinking what nobody has thought. – Albert Szent-Gyorgyi

Fortunately I didn’t have to look very far for my daily subject, so today’s mystery “what is it?!?”  photograph is ready for your guessing pleasure. Do you know? Can you tell?

What Is It?!?


What Was That?!? Yesterday’s Picture (Day 300)

Paul (aka funny hubby) commented, “Is it the Millemium Falcon flying through the innards of the 2nd Death Star?” Alas, I don’t think I could handle flying through space to get this shot, so not the Millenium Falcon. Girish thought, “its inside one of those light bulb things, you know like those tiny ones that go on a tree kinds” Well, it does have to do with a light but not those little tiny ones. So you’re partially correct! Ding ding! 😀 “Partial Credit ! The secret to getting a better grade !” Indeed! Mic got it right away, “Looks like a light fixture of some sort? A quartz element in the center with its reflection off the glass envelope of the light to the lower right? Strobe light?” Yes, it’s a strobe light! Ding ding ding! Jude said, “certainly looks like a light-bulb moment to me.” And in a way, it is. 😉 “curiouser and curiouser” said Alice.

So what you saw was the reflection inside of a strobe light. Hubby was pulling out Halloween props last night and the strobe light’s inner reflections captured my muse’s attention!
