From color to monochrome


Since my last picture was full of color, I'd like to share one that's decidedly devoid of it.

The question is, what is this?

A sponge? The ocean?

I give up.

I'm here from Michele's and I'm saying hello.

Shelli said...

I decided to come back when I saw at Michele's that you said you had just posted a new photo. I like this one, too.

Off to blogroll you.

The face of the moon.

Well, my latest post is on the moon, so this reminds me of that!

:)

If it's not the moon, then perhaps its a monochromatic close-up of a fleece throw.

brown sugar, waiting to be put into gingersnaps.

It's a picture of my windshield this morning...either that or the blacktop driveway.

kenju said...

Some sort of foodstuff?

Plain Jane said...

With all the talk of Winter, I can't help but think it's snow.. but that would be WAY too easy.. so .. uhh.. it's sand! (or something) :)

Barbara said...

It looks loke a rock to me.

margalit said...

I'm going with dirty snow. Michele sent me.

Sandy said...

Ahh, wow. Well, having destroyed many a Nerf Football in my day I'm going to guess -- the inner recesses of a squishy ball.

buffi said...

Looks like snow to me, Carmi. Maybe it's because I've been overcome with it lately. Putting this Texas girl in Ohio for a winter makes everything look like snow!

Prego said...

A chain smoker's bronchial tubes? A forgotten sock I used to clean up spilled mik? A close up of Dr. Phil's moustache?

Terry said...

I was thinking of dryer lint, or freezer frost. Hiya Carmi!

Hi, the 'next blog' thing works wonders. Anyway, I think it's either real snow, or fake snow, the kind you sprinkle around everything at this time of year to give it a 'natural' feel.

kenju said...

Okay, Carmi, time to tell us what it is!


Michele sent me back.

Thumper said...

It's either snow, or you somehow took a picture of the stuff growing on the underside my furnace filter...

Plumkrazzee said...

I'm back. I still think it's a windshield. Are you gonna tell us what it REALLY is?!

utenzi said...

Sure looks like a close up of snow to me, Carmi.

Michele sent me to witness this photograpic marvel from you, Carmi. By the way, I love that one you took a few months ago of the autumn leaves. It's very pretty. We were at that stage of the season only a few weeks ago. There's still a lot of trees with leaves on here in NC. :-)

Pearl said...

A side of a snowbank, partly greyed by road sludge? Disturbed beach sand?

Michele sent me.

surcie said...

Whatever it is, it looks salty. Salt, saltwater, some kind of rock/mineral. I'm sure I'm gonna be surprised by the answer.

craziequeen said...

Carmi - here via Michele's when I saw you on the boards :-)

um - dunno what your photo is, I'm no good at those 'close-up' shots...

But, as ever, happy to be here, dear :-)

A Woman Changed said...

A fleecy blanket?

Carmi said...

I'm loving the guesses so far, so I'm going to hold off until a little later today before I divulge the answer and upload my newest blog entry.

If you're tired of guessing, I hope you'll scroll down a bit and peruse some of the older material on the blog. Enjoy!

Karen said...

I think it's SLUSH. That icky, dark stuff that happens to snow that is run over by cars an inundated with salt. Am I right?

Michele sent me....

Shelli said...

A furry hat. An aerial view of trees.

Chas Ravndal said...

it looks like a grain of sand or my eyes are just deceiving me

Chatty said...

Snow...up close and personal?

Suzanne said...

looks like snow! oh no...are you guys burried in snow?

craziequeen said...

um...judging by your comment on Michele's - is it by any chance - snow??

cq
Michele sent me again :-)

Nikki-ann said...

Snow?

Carmi said...

I hope you'll ALL accept my heartfelt thanks for taking a stab at my photographic guessing game.

Congrats to the perceptive souls - Plain Jane beat 'em all - who said it was snow. It is a closeup of a snowbank immediately in front of my house. I severely underexposed the shot to give it the transitional-graying tone. I initially thought of giving up on it, but ultimately thought it was a cool perspective on something we may see everyday, but never really observe in a cohesive manner.

I'll be posting my next one momentarily.

David said...

tropical rain forest as seen from space?

Karen said...

Well, I said slush and that's simply snow in the past tense, right?

Michele sent me.
