GuessingGame1 – Wrinkle

Can you guess?
Can you guess?

Justine over at Eclectic Odds and Sods has started a new challenge for those of us missing the photo101 event and first up is a guessing game called wrinkle. Here is her idea:

The challenge is to photograph something that depicts the subject matter of ‘wrinkles’.

The aim of the photograph is that firstly the person guessing does have a chance of getting it right but not too easily.

Try to see if you can take a photograph that will need the least editing possible. The idea being to use angles, light, shadow & to perhaps find something even mundane that one can make look extraordinary or complex.

The end result being that when the guessing is finally over those trying to work out will slap their thigh and say “I can’t believe it was something so simple, I just couldn’t see it, but now it’s obvious”. 🙂

So this is my submission above, please let me know what you think it is. I hope you will also join in and post a “wrinkle” of your own.

    I am reading this from my phone and have been trying to enlarge it lol to try and make out what it is. It seems to be double layered its stumped me.

    It looks like wood? But I’m not sure as it has something that looks like sheets of rain but it doesn’t look quite right so making me unsure.

    Very cleverl
