Mystery Photo 1

Over the last few days I've noticed that several Persona Paper members have been submitting posts with mystery photos for their readers to try to identify. As photography is one of my hobbies, I've been meaning to give this a try myself, but it took me a few days to find something to use for my first attempt here.

Most of the mystery photos I've seen so far have been cropped from bigger photos, but I'm planning to take a different approach by getting up close and personal with the objects I use in my photos, then moving back out to get a photo of the whole object. I love taking black and white photos, but will use colour if I think my subject requires it. I don't think colour would help to identify this particular object, which is made of metal.

I hope this one isn't too difficult.

The bottom of a faucet. Thats what it reminds me of.

Not quite, but you're on the right track. The hole on this object is a lot smaller though.

Shower head? I've seen a few that look like that.

Gina145 wrote on January 16, 2015, 7:47 PM

No, but you're also close. The liquid that comes out of that hole isn't water.

I think it is a sink faucet (the bottom part of it).

Gina145 wrote on January 17, 2015, 4:57 AM

No, but it's something you'd find close to it, though probably not at home. It dispenses a liquid, but not water.

Thanks for introducing to this game on Persona Paper. Anyway, I think this is a tap or handle? That is just the first thing that came to mind lol but I see you already said no, so a sprinkler or something maybe?

the faucet where water is dripping. Right? Very obvious

Hello Gina :) I thought tap as well, but you say that water doesn't come out of this, so I think it's maybe a soap dispenser?

ison1 wrote on January 17, 2015, 3:11 PM

ooh and I love the idea of this game. I take very tightly cropped pictures anyway, so I might give it a go

Gina145 wrote on January 17, 2015, 4:03 PM

No, it's not a sprinkler. It's something that is found near to an indoor tap.

Gina145 wrote on January 17, 2015, 4:04 PM

No, it's not a faucet. But it's found near to one.

Gina145 wrote on January 17, 2015, 4:05 PM

Congratulations John. You've got it. I'll post the other photo soon, but I want to see if anyone else works it out first.

Gina145 wrote on January 17, 2015, 4:06 PM

You must have a go. I'd love to see what you come up with. Don't forget to take a wider photo too though.

Is it a close up of a tap where the water comes out?

Gina145 wrote on January 17, 2015, 4:28 PM

No, it's not a tap, but it's something you find near to one.

ison1 wrote on January 17, 2015, 5:42 PM

Woohoo! I am a winner :) yay me! ( I wouldn't have got it unless I read the comments first)

Gina145 wrote on January 17, 2015, 6:03 PM

That's okay. At least you took advantage of the clues I dropped. I'm glad that you won instead of some stranger that I've just met for the first time.

BarbRad wrote on January 17, 2015, 10:56 PM

It looks a little bit like a faucet, but the hole doesn't look big enough to be that.

Gina145 wrote on January 18, 2015, 3:26 AM

You're right about the hole being too small. It's found near a faucet and liquid does come through the hole, but it's not water.

AngelSharum wrote on January 18, 2015, 9:44 PM

Is it a faucet of some kind? Maybe in the bathroom.

Gina145 wrote on January 19, 2015, 4:57 AM

No, it's not though that's what most people have thought. It is found in some bathrooms though, and is close to the faucet.

GedWrites wrote on January 19, 2015, 6:00 AM

I thought tap then soap dispenser when you said no water came out .. good challenge, can't wait for your next offering Gina

Gina145 wrote on January 19, 2015, 6:22 AM

I'm glad somebody else picked up the clues. Even after John solved it, everyone else has been giving the same wrong answer. Now I need to start looking for another object to photograph.

AngelSharum wrote on January 19, 2015, 11:27 AM

That's because most of us do not read the other comments until after we guess. At least that's people have been doing with my photos. Trying to make it more fair.

Gina145 wrote on January 19, 2015, 5:23 PM

I've been doing that too, but I always read the comments afterwards. If I've made a wrong guess and then pick up a useful clue, I would try again.
