Photo Close Ups - What the heck is it? Quiz One - Everyday Objects
Shooting close ups of any object is fun and makes for interesting quizzes. Photo puzzles often incorporate extreme close ups of groups of objects which make jig-saw puzzles increase in difficulty.
The eye of the beholder is fooled by a close up photo. It is great exercise for the brain to try to imagine what the heck the object of the photo actually is. As everyone knows, exercising the brain is the best defense for warding off old age befuddlement.
So without further ado, let's begin this installment of What the Heck is it? Photo quiz One - Unless otherwise noted, all images are the property of L.A. Cargill, 2011, all rights reserved. You may click on the photos to see the full size image.
Close up number one
- It is a common object that is used daily
- This one is made from recycled material
- Sometimes these things display a message.
My grandfather had one of these and he was very proud of it. He may have even made it by hand. There is no limit to the variety of these. All of us have probably seen millions of these things and never thought of taking a close up photograph of it.
Close up number two
- This object can be hung
- It's delicious and natural
- Great songs erupt around this object
Wherever I go, I have to have one of these around. It's a feng shui object for sure. If you don't what feng (or fung) shui is, let me explain. It's kind of like using the power inherent in nature to correctly orient your world. It has something to do with qi or chi which means being in balance with the universal energy + matter + time + space. Enjoy!
Close up number three
- Essential equipment in Texas
- The upkeep is expensive
- Children love these
Whoa, just about anything I say about this photo will give it away if it hasn't already. Let's just say that we survived the Texas drought of 2011 (worst ever drought in the history of the state) by keeping one of these on our roof. They don't belong there, but I think it should be standard equipment on every house in the south western states of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and quite possibly California. I mean most people think Californians are pretty weird anyway. But these may help.
Close up number four
- This belongs to the male of the species
- Sometimes it makes them a little crazy
- Red is the most popular color
Sometimes females have these, but I wouldn't trust them. Oh, they might make your heart race and it really feels good when their top is down, but men think it's a status symbol. These make a great gift for guys, but it's expensive as all get out to maintain. The accessories alone will put a huge dent in your budget. This particular one needs a new everything already. Since we are both semi-retired, this may be the last one we'll ever see in our neck of the woods.
Close up number five
- It's bigger than a bread box.
- It's a useful item around the ranch
- Can be used for a Halloween treat
Well, you can't really eat it, but you can do some fun things with it, especially if you add on a particular attachment. You must be 'this' high (I'm holding up my hand to about shoulder height) to use this item. It also helps if you have left the tweens and are an official teen. Personally, I'm a grown woman and wouldn't set foot near it. It's too noisy and too dangerous for me. What the heck is it?
