Mystery Photos!

Look out world -- Kerry's actually creating a frivolous message thread!

I hatched a nutty idea while looking at some of my recent pictures.  If the thread dies on the vine I'll understand, but I thought I'd at least give it a shot.

I'll start.

Can you identify what this is a picture of?  I'll wait for a few guesses before posting the full-context picture.  If anybody gets it right, they'll be IT.  (Their turn to post a photo.)

I like this stuff. :thumb:

Dirty snow? The inside of an ash tray? A sand of some sort? The macro lens blur on the bottom tends to mean it was shot very close to the subject. I'm guessing whatever it is, it's very small.

You're kinda-sorta close on one of your guesses.

I won't say which one.  :roll:

Oh oh! This is like one of those pictures in the mall. If you squint, you'll see a sailboat or something.

Sorry to leave you guys hanging - I had to attend a funeral this morning.  :(

It was really too funny that the following plea came from Frost of all people:

give us a general theme...

Because Ed_in_Az nailed it!

Here is the full-context shot that the original was cut from:




And here it is from another angle.  It was almost a shame to have to scrape it off....


I guess you're up, Ed.  Did you get yourself a digital camera yet?
