Well, as it says in the title, this particular Macro Monday puzzle was taken outdoors – but I suppose you’d probably have guessed that anyway, huh?
What can I tell you about it?Â Well, it’s made of wood and metal, and it has nails in it.Â Or not.Â As you see, some have fallen out .. but it is quite an old object.Â In fact, I’m not sure they make them quite like this anymore, but possibly they do.
It’s both a utility object and decorative, and although some might say that its claim to beauty may be a thing of the past, I do think it’s still beautiful – maybe more beautiful because of its age and weathered status than it was when it was newly installed!
Does it help if I tell you it’s part of the churchyard fittings?Â And it’s not the only one there?Â Maybe.Â Maybe not.
Would you have one at home, on your own property?Â Maybe, but it’s unlikely, I think.
Do you see them in countries other than England?Â Yes, but probably not everywhere.
Are they only found in churchyards?Â No, but you’ll only find them where there is money.Â It’s an expensive way to get the job done.
This one is straight out of the camera apart from resizing and bringing it back to the perpendicular (I leaned a little, trying to get a good close up).Â Â Remember it’s a macro, but also that this week it’s not a tiny object.Â It’s probably not a lot bigger than actual life-size, if at all.
Now, having messed up and failed to produce the answer on time on no less than two occasions recently, I’m going to do what I should have been doing all along: I’m scheduling the answer to appear tomorrow evening.Â Those who want to find out if they’re right can pop back Tuesday evening at 9pm (UK time) and you’ll find a link here, but not at the bottom of this post, it will be in a whole new post.Â But as before, I’ll be giving the answer as a picture link to avoid spoiling things for latecomers.
OK?Â Off you go then – answers in the comments as usual!Â Have fun!
And we have a winner! Carolina is first past the post, if you’ll excuse the pun, with her guess, and then Greyhounds CAN Sit and … yes, I’m going to say Dimple is right too, even though she is wrong about the specifics.Â Well done you three – give yourselves a pat on the back!Â Â Commiserations to the rest of you, it was a difficult one this week.
As I mentioned, the answer this week is in a separate post, which appeared right on schedule and is waiting for those of you who still need to know the answer. It’s here.
Thanks for playing!
