    Back to a closeup this week.

    How this is played?

    Each member gets one guess. The answer will be revealed on the following Tuesday. The first correct guess has the honour 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!

    I'd say ice but will have to study it a bit to figure out what the ice was stuck to!

    A headlight lens with a metal grill protecting it?

    I'm having a hard time figuring out if I'm looking "into" something or "through" it. I need to ponder some more.

    That's a key starting point Luke.

    that "answers" my other dilemma of whether I was looking at something shiny and reflective or glass.

    Of course, I'm still hopelessly clueless. But what really bugs me is that I feel like I've seen "this thing" before. Not your photo of it, but what it actually is.

    OK - times up. No correct answer but Kyle (KillRamsey) came closest.

    It is actually reinforced, patterned window glass. The steel mesh is embedded in the glass and is commonly found in bathroom windows and in shower screens. The area shown is about 1.5" x 1" in size.

    Over to you now Kyle. :bravo-009:

    That was a real stumper, Bill. Loved the mind-bending it gave me.

    Damn.. I thought about that, but I found the glass bubbles too small.

    Wow, cool! I thought it was something more like one of these... I guess I was in the ballpark.

    Ok, I'll get a new one posted.
