I’ve had a nice little break from Macro Monday, but I think it’s time for me to begin teasing you again, don’t you?
I took this photo quite late last night, and there was a horrible orange cast on it (mainly because I didn’t bother to drag out the little studio lights) and I couldn’t get the colour balance right, so I made it black and white. Nice, huh? Nostalgic. Do you remember the days when it was all we had? Yeah, me too.
We had these things back then. They’ve been around for a very long time – as long as I can remember. This one is photographed from an unusual angle, but if you’ve ever handled or used one, you should recognise it, given enough time to think. As far as I know, they are exactly the same all over the world – the design hardly varies, although other factors like colour can change.
Is it useful? Or decorative? Well … it can be both. Does everyone have them? No, but I’d be surprised if those of you who don’t use them have never even seen one! They seem to be everywhere, and at the moment are enjoying a revival of interest.
Since it’s probably going to turn out to be difficult to guess (despite being SO obvious to me, tee hee!), I’ll give you one more clue: it’s no use just as it is. You need what might loosely be called ‘accessories’. Also, if you like to use them, having just one isn’t going to do you a lot of good, you’ll need more.
Oh, alright, that was two clues. What is this – the Spanish inquisition?
No, it isn’t going to be three clues. Off you go and scratch those heads until the answer falls out, why don’t you? Post your answer in the comments, and I’ll pop back tomorrow evening and add the answer to the bottom of this post in the form of a picture link.
The winner gets … a link back to their blog along with the answer!
See you all tomorrow! Meanwhile, check out more Macro Monday contributions at Lisa’s Chaos.
And the time has come to divulge the answer! Go here to see what the mystery object was.
Jeni of JenisDollz was the first to guess correctly again this week – well done, Jeni! Shooting Parrots also got it, and Kala and Carol Lanctot jumped on the bandwagon and agreed with our winners! Well done, all of you – I’m very impressed.
Thanks for playing – and do pop back and join me again next week for another puzzle, won’t you? It’ll be fun!
