Mystery Image and Posts of the Week

The mystery image above was taken a few days ago. It's either going to be really obvious or it might possibly have you stumped. I'm going to moderate comments just for today. See if you can guess what the mystery image is. I'll post the answer tomorrow.

And now, without further delay, here are the Posts of the Week. The icon below is yours for the taking if if your blog post is named as a Post of the Week - either as top post or as a runner up.

This week's POTW goes to..

Hmmmm...looks as though we're looking up...some sort of skylight?

Anonymous said...

This is awesome.. particularly the shadows of the teeth
The mysetery image is teeths of gear

Glo said...

I think your photo may be of the blinds in your bedroom, with the light behind them and the cord hanging down the left side.

I look forward to checking out your POTW :)

Zuzana said...

Dear Hilary, I seem not to be very good at solving these image riddles, I am afraid. It seems to be a string or a rope hanging through the image, thus my best guess would be a shadow of a window blind of some sort, or a curtain.;)
Thank you so much for including my writing among all these beuatiful pieces today, glad you enjoed my contemplative post.
And congratulations to everyone mentioned.
Have a great day dear friend,

Thanks for the reading tips for this week!

That mystery photo is a mystery... Looks like shadows of benches or diving boards...

Sueann said...

Gosh! I am the first to post and I haven't a clue!! Ha!!

Bob Bushell said...

It's a zip!

Dave said...

Got me stumped with that photo Hilary! I look forward to finding out what it is - Dave

June said...

Congratulations to the POTW honorees!

The picture is a window, seen through the space between two sets of Venetian blinds, with the cord hanging down.
I believe.

Anonymous said...

Is it a.......... an apple?
Maybe flash Gordon attact a stell wall with his lasers or even a river of some kind. lol.
Whatever it is is has an agressive feel about it. lol

Brian Miller said...

congrats everyone! hmmm you have me befuzzled on the image...

Sandra said...

I would guess that that picture was taken of the junction between two Venetian blinds.

CiCi said...

Hi Hilary, thanks for the post recommendations this week, will go check them out now. And also glad you appreciate the little guitar players on my post. They inspire me, if they can do it so can I. Hubby gave me a great guitar and when my fingers hurt I put it down. Ha.

Daryl said...

I think its some sort of lighting fixture or window treatment ... or not.

Thank you for the nod .. much appreciated!

Maggie May said...

Its shelves! Looking through shelves!

Nuts in May

ellen abbott said...

Well, I'm reminded of stairs but I don't think that's it because of the split in the middle. maybe bleacher seats from underneath?

thanks for the POTW mention Hilary.

Fragrant Liar said...

I'm going with a close-up shot of window blinds. It is def a weird image, but that's what my brain came up with. :-)

Thanks much for recognizing me and Miss America as a POTW. We're both excited about it. :-)

Mage said...

Thanks again for linking to these wonderful blogs. Tugster has left us with a wonderful post....he's on vacation, and purelandmountain is giving daily updates from Japan that touch me deeply also.

Guess: Stair shadow?

Cricket said...

Why thank you Hilary, and ds, for including my little post here. What a nice surprise, though I am almost embarrassed to have you post anything that includes my photography.

Surprisingly and sadly busy this am, but I'll have to return to make the rounds. Congratulations to all.

Karen (formerly kcinnova) said...

Standing under bleachers, looking up (or really, under any set of stairs looking up to the light).
What a great shot!

Off to read happy thoughts and view happy photographs.

Out on the prairie said...


Kat said...

Oh Wow! Thank you so much! I am honored. :)
Off to read the others.

Is the picture of blinds in your house?

Bossy Betty said...

Thank you! Thank you! I am so happy to have a Post of the Week. HOB will be soooooo happy too! (Well.....) I am guessing a super closeup of a zipper.

Reb said...

I'll have to come back to read the other posts, but those are Venetian blinds.

Anyes said...

Wow, Hilary I am stomped! This mystery image is quite interesting and I am going to venture and say it's a floating shelf, just for the fun of playing :-)

Kelly H-Y said...

I'm trying to figure out if it has something to do with shadows, but can't quite tell. I'm stumped!
Off to check out the POTW! :-)

She Who Carries Camera said...

totally stumped.

Tammie Lee said...

wonderful photo, I have no idea what it is, but the design is strong

thank you for all these suggestions for enjoyment, learning and connection.
thank you for honoring what I have shared.

Kerri Farley said...

Looks like shelves to me.

Cricket said...

p.s. - I think the photo is a window blind.

messymimi said...

Have to admit i am one of the stumped people. Can't wait to see the answer!

Unknown said...

Thank you , Hilary. ( and DS ).
And I linked back to you.... with pics of Montreal :)

Karen said...

Is it under a porch? I dunno...

Cheryl Kohan said...

I've looked at that image from every possible angle and I cannot figure out what it is. Kinda looks like light coming through a crack on a staircase but I know that's totally wrong.

My hat is off to whomever guesses the right answer!!

Nice puzzle, Hilary! Lots of fun.

larkswing said...

I honestly do not have the slightest idea. I'll blame it on the time change, my brain is just not working this week!! :)

Have a great week and thanks for the great reading list!

Mental P Mama said...

Yay everyone! And what is this ziggy thing????

SandyCarlson said...

Thanks for the mention! The osprey and I are very grateful.

ethelmaepotter! said...

Congrats one and all on POTW! As for the image? Maybe kitchen shears cutting a piece of twine?

Deidre said...

I love that you do posts of the week! Such a great way to meet new blogs to love :)

Hilary said...

Thanks for playing along, everyone.. and thanks always for the kind comments. Answer is coming right up in the next blog post.

The Retired One said...

Thanks for the shout out on my blog! I had no idea (I am painfully behind in reading other's blogs! LOL) until another blogger told me. So nice of you to list mine in the "just plain good" category! xxoo
