Round 2 “What’s that?” reveal and “K” stories voting reminder

The “K” stories voting period is at the halfway mark and it’s still going pretty slow. It’d be nice of people gave them a read (there’s at least one good one, I’d wager), and if you’ve read them, please vote for your favorite of the “Alphabet Challenge K-Stories” HERE.<<<This Is A Link

Clicking on the above link will take you to the post with the poll where you can cast your vote. The post also contains links to the individual stories. After voting, readers can — and some say “should” — spread the news about the stories to friends and family. Or, not. But, we hope for yes.

So . . . the Round 2 “what’s that?” reveal . . .

“What’s that?” — No. 1

“What’s that?” — No. 1

Yes, it’s a mushroom.

The “it’s from Hawaiʻi” hint was a bit of a curveball hint . . . but, this mushroom was posted before on the blog (when I was living there) as was this next one.

It’s olive oil, apple cider vinegar, and pepper . . . my usual salad dressing presented in B&G&W.

“What’s that?” — No. 2

“What’s that?” — No. 2

In color, it might have been easy.

As I’m writing this a full day before publication, I don’t know who might have guessed this — or any of the photos — but someone might have.

Photographers probably guessed what I was showing in these next offerings . . .

“What’s that?” — No. 3A

“What’s that?” — No. 3A

“What’s that?” — No. 3B

“What’s that?” — No. 3B

Yes, it’s the flash of a vintage camera.

Now, these next two are also from Hawaiʻi and appeared many times in the blog . . .

“What’s that?” — No. 4

“What’s that?” — No. 4 – part of the nose

“What’s that?” — No. 5

“What’s that?” — No. 5 – part of the nose and mouth

OK, so they’re not exactly smiling. A misdirection, that was; that’s their fierce battle-visages, not smiles.

I’ll be curious to see if anyone guessed this next one correctly.

“What’s that?” — No. 6

“What’s that?” — No. 6

And, I’ll be especially impressed if anyone guessed this one correctly!

“What’s that?” — No. 7

“What’s that?” — No. 7

The next one isn’t especially difficult but I’d wager not many readers regularly see turtles out an about.

“What’s that?” — No. 8

“What’s that?” — No. 8

Again, that might have been easier (a lot easier) if presented in color.

Last, but not least . . . The shape of things to come is a tough one . . .

“What’s that?” — No. 9

“What’s that?” — No. 9

I didn’t bother with the SmugMug gallery because the photos are not that great at full resolution. But, here’s the gallery of the photos and their reveals.

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.

    Well done, E! Very interesting objects that I came very little near to guessing what they are! But as I noted on the previous post, it was fun to imagine and guess. I feel a bit peeved about the phone since I did think of phones, but did not correlate it with an actual plastic phone I had in the ’70’s that was a replica of the one above!

      That’s what happens as we age . . . we don’t remember stuff, let alone recognize it.

      Seriously, some of those were a bit of a cheat as there’s no way for anyone to know what they are (or guess) from what little I shared.

      Well, as long as these photos come from earlier posts, then the fun is in searching for them.

        Some go back a number of years. The frog, I’m not sure if I shared it before. Also, the mannequin. I think so, but I should check before I share them.

  2. The first one was obviously organic even though it looked leathery.
    The turtle (small image and large) have such beautiful designs/detail of course black and white area always a favorite for me.
    Missed the first part – but entertaining photo scavenger hunt

      You are welcome, Carolyn.

      These were pretty tough, including a few that were deliberate misdirection (like the frog’s eye).

      Thanks for playing along and having fun with it.
