Last week’s Macro Monday puzzle was so darned easy, ALL of you got it right, so this week I think I’ll do something just a little bit harder.
Well… to be fair, I don’t actually think this one is that difficult, either, but I suppose we shall see!
Take a long look at that thing up there. It’s a close-up photograph of something which should be familiar to most of you. Some will use one more often than others, some will never use one. Others will use one in their work, or for fun, and occasionally through necessity.
They come in many different forms, but this is kind of traditional. It’s almost the same as the one I remember my mother having when I was very young, only made from more modern materials. Mum still had hers when she died, because they don’t actually wear out very easily – in fact, it’s entirely possible to find perfectly usable antique versions! Although … Hmm. Some may possibly argue with this statement, on the grounds that – but ssshhh! I don’t want to give too much away!
So, enough clues. Off you go and cudgel those brains – or alternatively, take the answer that you’ve already formulated by now and pop it into the comments and I’ll be back. Tomorrow evening – that’s Tuesday – at about 10pm, UK time.
And don’t forget that you can visit Lisa’s Chaos for more macro photography.
Well, you’ve pretty much done it again! Most of you got this right, although I’m pretty sure that some of you would not have done so if you hadn’t been prompted by the other guesses. So I’m just going to mention Don’t Bug Me as the winner today, since she was the first to enter a comment. And Ron, Those Brindle Kids, Houndstooth, Molly, Shooting Parrots, and Kateri, all of whom seem to have arrived at the answer independently.
And I must give an honourable mention to Sharon for the Most Creative Guess of the Week.
Well played to all of you – especially those who got it right! See you again next week. Oh yeah … and go here, if you still don’t know what it is!
