What is it? [Apr. 25th, 2007|08:06 pm]
Kake
A puzzle I made for taimatsu — what's this? It's a heavy crop of a photo I took this morning. Bob, doop, Juliet, Marna, and Katie are all disqualified from answering because I think it would be too easy for them.



Edited to add: ceb got it. Thank you all for playing! Oh — that's not to say that you can't carry on guessing if you'd like to; am happy to continue handing out clues. The "answer" photo isn't hosted on Flickr, to avoid spoilers.

Nope, and nope :) Your second guess is closer on the material of one of the parts.

Nope - I'm totally not skilled enough to take purposeful photos like that!

It started out as a photo of something reasonably ordinary, but my filthy dirty living room windows made it impossible to crop it in a way that would make it look good. I liked the colours in one part of the image, so cropped it to that.

You're definitely on the right track! It's not phegnvaf, though.

Nope! Although now you mention it, I can see the resemblance.

No - there are vegetable things involved, but they didn't make the crop.

Aaaah! I *thought* it was 'something round a plant container' but did not imagine it could have been taken from *outside* the pot with the earth still showing, so thought it would be from inside, but then the folded-thing on *top* of the earth confused me, and I gave up :)

:-)

I have a really nifty device for making seed-pots out of newspaper. They're a bit fragile but you can just plant them straight into the ground without removing the plant from the pot, because the roots will grow through.

i got the 'qveg' bit (at larst) but not the green 'zngrevny'. serves me right for not 'aving a 'terra svatre'.

I thought it was something like that. I would have guessed moss and algae and generic cruft growing on a textured window.
