February 29, 2012

Of all the days to be uninspired! How often do we get a February 29th? Once every four years. You'd think I'd be able to come up with some ultra creative or humorous way to capture this day on "film", but no. The brain is mush, the sky is gray, and the joints aren't doing much better. So this is what you get! Any guesses as to what it is?
I figured ut long ago that I get paid salary on a 365 day calendar year. Therefore, I would technically work for free today. But, taking a "mandatory wellness" day is much more fun! And, that's how I got my inspiration!

This is a super abstract! No clue of what this is though...

noodles..

@cluvlj I'm glad you were able to take a "wellness" day and have some fun on your "free" day. I've been unemployed for 2 years now, so everyday is a free day here! Hopefully come fall, they'll be paid days again.
@woot Thanks Davide!
@tklein Thanks Tina- I'll post the answer tomorrow.

Cool

I'm going with a tassel of some kind :) It's a nice pic of the whatever anyway!

pasta.. =) home made pasta ...could it be..
February 29th, 2012  
looks like hair. Whatever it is the texture is amazing
February 29th, 2012  
I'd vote for pasta as well.
February 29th, 2012  
My guess is a broom? Cool abstract!
March 1st, 2012  
I like the textures in this.
March 1st, 2012  
broom? Very interesting shot, whatever it is.
March 1st, 2012  
No clue what this is. Beautiful though
March 1st, 2012  
A good one to guess

@bkbinthecity Thanks Brian!
@potsbypam Thanks Pam!

Reveal tomorrow- check back and see if you were right!
March 1st, 2012  
It looks very creative to me!! I say a nylon Broom!! I think Straw would have more detail...but who knows Ill check back tomorrow!!
March 1st, 2012  
Cool shot

Great texture photo

I'm gonna go against the general consensus and go with broom bristles. But whatever it is, you did a great job capturing the texture of it! I know how you feel when you are uninspired. Sorry you've been out of work for so long. I do hope you find work soon. I miss working.

@ellimae @steeler @nicolecampbell @prttblues
Thanks Ellen, Howard, Nicole and Bev- off for my morning swim and I'll post the picture later!
March 1st, 2012  
I love how the sense of depth increases as I stare at this picture. It looks like a bunch of rubber bands to me
March 1st, 2012  
@pandorasecho Thanks Dixie- I'm about to post the answer!
March 1st, 2012  
I would have thought it was whole grain pasta --- but I looked at your March 1 shot before this one ;-)
March 2nd, 2012  
@cimes1 Thanks Carole- that's ok. I didn't know what to shoot this day. It felt silly to take a macro of a broom for such a unique day, but the creative juices were dried up in the gray day! The "reveal" shot however met my usual standards!
March 2nd, 2012  
I almost guessed homemade pasta, but I unintentionally cheated and read your comment above! I love close ups that keep you guessing.
March 3rd, 2012  
@lisjam1 Ah yes- the benefit of looking at the "guess what this picture is" picture after the answer has been posted! I was thinking about putting this one up on the freaky Friday post, but so many people had fun guessing and said nice things I felt bad about doing it! I have to remind myself that one of my worst made it on to the pp so why should I worry!?
March 3rd, 2012  
@olivetreeann That’s the funny thing about the PP. Everyone gets so excited to be on it, but really most of the best don’t make it. When I tagged mine, a couple kind of made me cringe.
March 3rd, 2012  
Broom bristle it is, easy, well I am working backwards catching up on your shots so that may have made it a little easier lol
March 4th, 2012  
@melorac Thanks Carole- yes, seeing the answer first does make it easier to guess correctly!
@lisjam1 The PP is one of those that it is truly fun to get on, but HOW you get there is somewhat of a mystery!
March 5th, 2012  
Great image.
March 5th, 2012  
@la_photographic thanks Laura- as it was I just shot a dozen odd photos for the day because I didn't know what else to take, and this one just happened to be the most interesting!
March 5th, 2012  
Very cool abstract. Nicely done.
March 5th, 2012  
@netkonnexion Thanks Netkonnexion. It was taken on a very uninspired day, but came out pretty well in spite of my duldrums.
