Macro Monday #2

I know you're all waiting with bated breath to find out about last week's photo. We had lots of great guesses, but no winners! To be quite honest, I don't think I could have guessed it either. It was a hard one. Like some of you, when I see it, I think "coffee grounds" too. But nope, no coffee. No stains. No carpet. No poppy seeds and no baked goods. Though what comes inside it can be associated with baked goods.

Confused?

Does this photo help?



It's a piece of a broken pecan shell sitting on my blue jeans. Isn't it weird how the black spots on the shell look 3-D? That does make them look like coffee or poppy seeds.

Thanks for playing along! I hope you had fun. *grin*

Now for this week's photo... hopefully a tad bit easier, but maybe not! (Click to enlarge.)




So, do you think you know it? Can you outsmart my macro? If you have a fun macro or close up shot to share, let me know! Or if you have any ideas for some close up shots, feel free to make a suggestion. Maybe someday you'll see it. *grin*

I think it's lettuce or a salad. never would have guessed a pecan shell on your jeans! LOLEven seeing it a little farther back I'm not sure I would have known what it was! I like this game.

Pecan shell? That is so cool!

It looks like... lettuce. That is all I can think of. I know rock chick said the same thing.

It looks like it may be seaweed or algae with some broken sea shells.

I'm stumped...it looks like the surface of some strange green planet to me, but I know that isn't right.

A salad?

Dustin said...

Like I said last week, I knew what it was and don't think I would have guessed!

I do think this one's a bit easier though...but not sure I'd get it if I didn't know what it was...maybe I would...dunno.

Sandy said...

WOW. Would never have gotten that. I want a macro lens...=P
This one..I dunno. It does look lettuce-y. But I dunno.
I'm gonna think about it for a bit more

To be honest, I think it looks like what is inside a garbage disposal.

But I'm going to guess the bottom of a fish tank.

Jeanie said...

Okay, that looks foodie to me. Would have NEVER guessed pecan shell. (You Southerners and those peeeee-cans!) ;o)

Hey, I was over at 2belles' website and I'm sorry, but I kept cracking up everytime I saw photos over the bamboo sticks, etc....thinking of your 11 boxes...
