    This object is dead easy, or at least should be. I hope I didn't blur and mix it to the Mission Impossible, but I trust on you, and your imagination.

    How this is played?

    Each member gets one guess. The answer will be revealed on the following Tuesday. The first correct guess has the honor of submitting the image for the next challenge. Sometimes there will be more than one thing in the photo or more than one way to accurately describe what the photo represents. The original poster will be the final judge of who is "most correct".

    Enjoy!

    Yes it is, but maybe, just maybe, my cropping made it little bit difficult :)

    If I rotate my head and squint I see dog heads with their tongues hanging out - yes I see figures in clouds too. BUT my official guess is a super blurry closeup of woven fabric like tea towels.

    This looks exactly like my old TV image way back when... My entry is "pillow".

    It made no sense on my phone, but now looking at it from a few meters away on my tablet it seems to be some lcd or led screen from some old digital watch, and it is 1.46 pm...:)

    OK, time to close this one. My riddle was quite easy, so easy that I had to make it, well reasonably difficult with heavy cropping. But we have a winner with right answer here!

    If you look the original, not from the normal distance from the screen, but step up few steps away from your screen, it should be obvious what it is.

    And Pim from Netherlands was right, it is LCD display on the reserve battery for mobiles. You see why I chose this one from my desk :)

    Well done, Pim! I would never have got that in a million years of guessing.

    thing is, as soon as Pim gave the answer, I could see the numbers. But before that, I was sure Sue was right with her glass brick. This was a nice one!

    I have to admit it was my wife who helped me here.. I had looked at it on my phone, and later looked again on the tablet. Could still not make much of it so I turned the tablet to my wife who was sitting a few meters away and asked her what it was... Almost immediately she told me it was some digital display....:) I guess this proves once again sometimes you need to step back in order to get a better view....

    I will try and post a new challenge asap, am currently travelling but hope to get something up in a day or so.
