I didn’t intend to publish another ‘Mystery Picture’ until the last one had been guessed, but I also didn’t quite reckon with the intriguing nature of my ‘Silent Sunday’ post last week. I’m just putting that picture here, for the sake of convenience:
OK, so it’s a shot taken from a confined, dark place, looking outwards into a light space. But just what is the picture of, and just how was it taken? Please put your guesses in the reply box. You might care to look at Mystery Picture 5 while you’re at it. Oh, and if you’re feeling really kind, I’d love it if you gave this post some publicity – tweets, tell your friends and family, smoke signals, whatever you like… I’ll look forward to hearing from you. I’m also linking this post to Post Comment Love at Verily, Victoria Vocalises.
Yes, it’s been a while since I did one of these posts here. Mystery Picture 4 was finally cracked some months back, by Kay, who blogs at Brink of Bedlam – with, as they say, a little help from her friends, at Gardening Express. (It’s not what you know, it’s who you know, eh?) Anyway, here is the picture from which that one was cropped. (If I’d chosen a red pelargonium, you’d all have guessed it straight away, wouldn’t you? So, well done to Kay and the Gardening Express crew!
So now for another Mystery Picture! Please put your guesses in the replies box. Thank you. It’s a rather different theme this time!
Remember! The picture may be a view from an unusual angle, highly compressed, or highly magnified. And I’m not saying which!
OK, then. The correct answer for week 3 is, of course, a lightning conductor down the side of a church wall. Well done to Phil (@inxta) who guessed correctly. Here is the (ornate) top end of it : And here is the new picture below. As before, please leave your guess as a reply, and feel free to pass the word around so that we get some more guesses. Thank you again for viewing.
Right. First of all, the answer to week 2 – that picture is, of course, part of a street lamp. I did warn you that the angle may be unusual. Here, I needed to hang upside down from a helicopter, or rotate the image. In the event, the latter was easier.
And now for the new picture. Here we go, so start guessing, Leave your guesses as replies, and, if you like this idea for blog posts, please tell your friends (e.g. tweet/retweet on Twitter.) Thanks for your interest.
Here’s my mystery picture for this week. For details about this theme, look here. Please have a go and leave your guess as a comment. Thank you for visiting.
The answer will be published next week-end, at the start of the week 3 post, with a link back for your convenience. I’m only just launching this theme (as you can see) so in the meantime, your references/retweets on Twitter are much appreciated. Thank you.
First of all, a special thank you to all of you who’ve dropped by and looked at my ‘Silent Sunday’ posts for the last three weeks. You will recall that they took the style of a ‘mystery picture’ for you to guess just what it was.
I have now decided that it’s better to separate this idea from ‘Silent Sunday’ and post it as a theme in its own right, so to speak. I shall be glad of any feedback and suggestions, and, as always, your comments are welcome. Please also leave your guess(es) as a comment – you’re welcome to have as many guesses as you like!
Oh, and just a few guidelines:
The object will always be something reasonably common – I’m not expecting you to know what all the components of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN look like, or anything like that.
However, the picture may show the object from a long distance away…
Or alternatively, perhaps magnified.
It may also be shown viewed from an unusual angle.
So here is the picture for this week – what is it?
