haha, well i didn't get it straight away either ;)

this gave me an idea for a photography game we could play- people could take macro shots of 'every day items' and people have to guess what it is. should be something which would be very easily recognisable if zommed out, but maybe not so obvious when zoomed in.

i would start with one myself, but am at work with no camera!!

unless frex has any other ideas for 'brain teasers'?

Yep carly! ...something like that. Not necessarily a macroshot, anything which is uncommon, seldom, unusual or only known in the part of the world where we live.
robb could post a photo of Haggis for instance :D

Damn you Frex with your super Macro lenses :p

not even checking the file name could help, nice touch ;)


ok first one, is it a non stick surface that you put inside a pan?? if not then I give up, I've seen enough Kitchenware in my german friend's place to make the Enterprise green with envy ;)


second one

is it relish? No?

the thing that grows on your back?? No?

frex

I knew sticking veggies in your eyes as a kid will help one day, I started with carrots, for my eyes, you know, then well things got really blurry afterwards ;)

first one, is it a coffee holder/filter/lens adapter :p thing?

frex
04-06-2006, 08:56 AM
@Igno...eating carrots are good for the eyes!!
Did you ever see a rabbit wearing glasses? :D
First: I accept coffee holder...it is the part of a Senseo coffee maker where you put the cup on.

@little matt...nothing upside down here :)

Go all to the link I posted and check for "Ballarat District" which is located in Australia...if it grows in Australia it should grow in USA also...just cause you don't know it does not mean it's not growing in US :D
