Susan Leigh08-Sep-2006 10:34
well there you go..I'd never have got that!! ;-)
Gigi Chan08-Sep-2006 01:30
Great entry. Nice color and DOF. I guess some kinds of pipe or hose of sink or ventilator .
virginiacoastline08-Sep-2006 00:58
well at first I thought it was corregated pipe . . .until you said kitchen . . .can of tomatoes without tomatoes =)
purpod08-Sep-2006 00:49
A tin can? I dunno, but love how you've disguised it!
Guest 07-Sep-2006 23:53
Here I would never have guessed! Interesting angle and light.
Cindi Smith07-Sep-2006 23:42
Looks like a can without the label.
Veysel Birinci07-Sep-2006 23:09
Too hard for me :-(
TimA07-Sep-2006 22:55
Perhaps its the screw thread for connecting a sink to the u-bend.
Bet you didn't know I'm not a plumber! Great lighting BTW!
shatterbug07-Sep-2006 21:57
I'm guessing something from the sink too. Looks like a nozzle or hose :^O
Bob Floyd07-Sep-2006 21:52
Excellent! Love the angle on this. Well done.
Chris(tine)07-Sep-2006 20:57
Does look like an unwrapped can...?Chris
J. Scott Coile07-Sep-2006 20:50
Uncanny ;) Well done. Lovely forms.
EDITH RB07-Sep-2006 20:44
I've no idea what it is but I like how you have composed it.. and the color tone too is fantastic. :) Vote :)
Jen Bixler07-Sep-2006 20:21
Canned item....Love how the focus is on the one ring.
Very cool.
Katie Jones07-Sep-2006 20:03
Fantastic lighting... hmm.. but what is it?! :-)
Natasha C07-Sep-2006 19:51
Well done!
Tomasz Dziubinski - Photography07-Sep-2006 18:25
Doesn't matter dressed or undressed - not in my kitchen I suppose :)
Zak07-Sep-2006 18:15

David Royall07-Sep-2006 18:09
Part of a drain pipe?
Lee Rudd07-Sep-2006 17:43

chrisse07-Sep-2006 17:30
Still haven't got a clue, even after the "clue"-image... Nice image.
Ann LT07-Sep-2006 17:22
Oh,it's an undressed can. :)
Ann LT07-Sep-2006 17:22
I had no clue till I looked at the 2nd photo.
Cool use of shallow Dof,Sheila!!
Michael Shpuntov07-Sep-2006 16:19
Hmm... No clue, but very nice picture.
Shayne07-Sep-2006 16:17
Very nicely Done Sheila.... I'm going with the Can too
Kathy Pedersen07-Sep-2006 15:50
I am thinking a can as well. Stunning lighting and curves.
Dan Chusid07-Sep-2006 15:40
A plate of sorts?
James Ross07-Sep-2006 15:34
It's a Tin can with the wrapper off??
Adrian Reilly07-Sep-2006 15:34
A tin of beans:-)))) Heinz
James Ross07-Sep-2006 15:33
It's a Tin can with the wrapper off??
Jessica McCollum07-Sep-2006 15:33
It does look like a can!
Guest 07-Sep-2006 15:28
you helped us too much with the can, still doesn't look right from the inside, great shot !
Deborah Lewis07-Sep-2006 14:45
How about a knife sharpener?
Guest 07-Sep-2006 14:22
maybe every Aussie kitchen ! not sure it's in mine, but seems to be cutting/dicing blades of some sort
Susan Leigh07-Sep-2006 12:44
I keep looking in my kitchen...what drawer is yours in? LOL
Jola Dziubinska07-Sep-2006 12:22
I've checked in my kitchen - can't see anything like this. Good puzzle, Sheila :)
Eckhart Derschmidt07-Sep-2006 12:05
If there were not the metallic ring in the middle, it could bve many things, the grip of a knife of so...
Deborah Lewis07-Sep-2006 11:49
a turkey baster is my best guess!
Ed Goodnight07-Sep-2006 11:44
lovely composition and dof
nice and sharp
I walk through the kitchen many times during the day and confess that we don't seem to have one of these
I'm baffled
faye white07-Sep-2006 11:34
ummmm... I don't spend much time in my kitchen...
cool shapes and tones though!
Guest 07-Sep-2006 11:32
very good job of hiding it... some sort of gear working... will think on this...
Melissa Howard07-Sep-2006 11:20
hose for the spray nozzle at the kitchen sink...
Ray :)07-Sep-2006 11:18
Washing machine hose?
James Ross07-Sep-2006 10:34
It doesn't look like any in my kitchen but Susan could be onto a winner. I'm in. :-)
Adrian Reilly07-Sep-2006 10:14
Really bugging me now:-( :-) could it be a part of a boiler or a car
Adrian Reilly07-Sep-2006 09:50
I see it now:-)

laine8207-Sep-2006 09:10

Guest 07-Sep-2006 08:58
Hmm.. Lens Baby "macro extention tube" lol
wernere0107-Sep-2006 08:55
cd´s? Oh no, may be part of a car (don´t know the name in english), the things that avoid that the car jumps up and down too hard.
antidote307-Sep-2006 08:29
obvously i don't have this in my kitchen!! no idea. :?
Adrian Reilly07-Sep-2006 08:15
could it be a flexible vac hose
Susan Leigh07-Sep-2006 08:08
Nice shot! it a plug?
Yvonne07-Sep-2006 07:51
I've no idea what it is either but it made a fascinating subject!
JD07-Sep-2006 07:30
A flexible hose under the hood of your car?
hockkai07-Sep-2006 07:24
I do not know what is it but it looks good, that is what I care about :)
Graham Tomlin07-Sep-2006 07:20
thought it was a spark plug till i read its in a kitchen lol good shot regards Helen
Nicki Thurgar07-Sep-2006 07:12
Hmm, looks like a pipe of some sort - or bellows - vacuum cleaner pipe... or maybe some kind of lens extension tube...!! Beautifully shot, whatever it is!!
tomsview07-Sep-2006 07:03
Interesting game & interesting picture!
Anyway, it's a nice shot!
Sheila07-Sep-2006 06:37
Nothing as interesting as a that, Dan.
Dan Chusid07-Sep-2006 06:20
I'm thinking along the lines of a stereo speaker
or woofer. I hear drumming in my ear...
I'm posting one as well, as part of the challenge:
Here's another participant, Jennifer:
