January Photograph Competition

IMG_1705

A nice easy one! There are a number of simple ‘inventions’ that I daily give thanks for…Β This is my all-time favourite. I suspect that most here will guess what it is.

This month’s competition is a photo of your favourite ‘invention’ taken from an odd angle.

The prize will go to the photo which is hardest to identify – so I am inviting all charioteers to join the fun and try to identify the photos!

Closing date 8/2/2015.

    I’m on the case, Boadicea. πŸ™‚

    A hasty attempt and it’s probably not that difficult to guess what it is :

    Thanks – haven’t a clue!

  4. January 10, 2015 at 8:00 am

    Relax, bud, it’s proabably one of ours! πŸ˜‰

    Interesting – I recognised the subject of Janus’ piccie immediately, as any self-respecting Aussie should. Mind you, Boa didn’t. 😦

    Bearsy, it’s a man thing! 😳

    Boadicea. I can see a spout on the left and a handle with an on/off button on the right. Are we in coffee making territory?

    OZ, you spoil sport! The idea is to pretend you know! 😁

    Oops! Like the beard trimmer thingy? Me sori tumas.

    I can’t tell whether or not one should say what it is?
    But as a total spoiler I have it for a Breville electric kettle.

  13. January 10, 2015 at 8:07 pm

    Another one:

  14. January 10, 2015 at 8:56 pm

    I can’t even to pretend to recognise yours, Arrers. πŸ˜’

  15. January 10, 2015 at 9:15 pm

    Here’s one, great invention probably 100 years old, bought for a few dollars at a yard sale.

  16. January 10, 2015 at 10:31 pm

    That’s encouraging, I think, Janus. It’s very difficult to gauge because I know exactly what it is. πŸ˜‰

    Christina

    You are absolutely right – even down to the brand!

    And yes, one is supposed to say what one thinks the objects are – how else can I tell how obscure the photos are? πŸ™‚

    Ara’s top of a pepper grinder.

  19. January 11, 2015 at 9:31 am

    Good guess, but no, it’s not a pepper grinder, Tina.

  20. January 11, 2015 at 10:14 am

    Nawh, it’s a salt grinder! 😳

  21. January 24, 2015 at 2:26 pm

    What do you think?

  22. January 24, 2015 at 2:48 pm

    Scary spice….

  23. January 24, 2015 at 5:29 pm

    I’ll give you a clue to make it much easier. It is not a Dalek.

  24. January 24, 2015 at 6:02 pm

    Crikey, I really don’t know, Gaz. Is it a juicer?

  25. January 24, 2015 at 6:17 pm

    Is it one of your maracas, Gaz? Shake it, bro!

  26. January 24, 2015 at 7:03 pm

    No Juicer, No Maracas πŸ™‚

  27. January 24, 2015 at 7:17 pm

    A very cruel goldfish bowl, Gaz? πŸ˜‰

  28. January 24, 2015 at 7:20 pm

    Next clue. It’s a very common item in the house.

  29. January 24, 2015 at 7:36 pm

    Is it some sort of slow-cooker, Gaz?

  30. January 24, 2015 at 7:45 pm

    Haha, if it was it might be able to hold up to 10 petit pois

  31. January 24, 2015 at 7:58 pm

    Ah, well as least we know roughly what size it is. πŸ™‚

  32. January 24, 2015 at 8:24 pm

    A cork screw?

  33. January 24, 2015 at 8:30 pm

    Nope.

  34. January 24, 2015 at 8:40 pm

    Pencil sharpener?

  35. January 24, 2015 at 8:43 pm

    No, getting colder

  36. January 24, 2015 at 8:52 pm

    Bother, I shall admit defeat then.

  37. January 25, 2015 at 7:08 am

    An egg poacher?

  38. January 25, 2015 at 8:46 am

    No, but it is more related to heat that cold as in a pencil sharpener πŸ™‚

  39. January 25, 2015 at 4:53 pm

    A garlic crusher?

  40. January 25, 2015 at 5:17 pm

    Gone cold again….heat man heat!

  41. January 25, 2015 at 5:21 pm

    Ara, your first picture – a great invention! – it must have been invented about 5 million years BC or have I got it wrong πŸ™‚

    January 25, 2015 at 5:34 pm

    Keyboard cleaner?

  43. January 25, 2015 at 6:10 pm

    A lighter?

  44. January 25, 2015 at 6:46 pm

    Christopher…you are a genius πŸ™‚

  45. January 25, 2015 at 6:53 pm

    Am I supposed to show the answer yet?

  46. January 25, 2015 at 10:05 pm

    Gaz.

    Well done. πŸ™‚

    My version is rather more modern but I think you’ve guessed it!

  47. January 25, 2015 at 10:12 pm

    I’ll let you post the answer just to be sure, and if you cannot guess who manufactured this one, I would be very surprised, πŸ™‚

  48. January 25, 2015 at 10:33 pm

    Well, I think it is a pessel and mortar and I am going to guess that you made it in your pottery class πŸ™‚

  49. January 25, 2015 at 10:33 pm

    oops pestle

  50. January 25, 2015 at 11:12 pm

    You are very clever, Gaz it is a pestle and mortar, but no, not one I made myself. It was made about thirty years ago by Mason Cash.

    The second object I posted is a top view of a wine stopper thingy in a holder :
