Mystery Photo 1 - the solution
It's been three days now, so I guess it's time that I provided the solution to my first mystery photo .
Most of the suggestions I received were pretty close, but not quite right. The majority thought that the object was a faucet or tap. At least they were in the right room.
I tried to help out by dropping clues and eventually ison1 worked out that it was actually a soap dispenser. Congratulations John!
The one in the photos is pretty cool because you just stick your hand under the spout and a sensor will tell the dispenser to give you some soap. I'm guessing that it's supposed to measure out the right quantity to wash your hands with, but I never feel like it's enough, so I always take my hand away and put it back to get a bit more.
Now I need to go and find another object that will produce an interesting and slightly mysterious close-up.
