Ohhhhh, I stumped y’all with last week’s challenge photo, didn’t I? I wasn’t expecting that.
Nobody got last week’s challenge photo and I’m neither surprised nor upset. It was a very unique photo to which I really just wanted to see how you’d all respond.
Wow, I know the focus and lighting were rough on last week's challenge photo, but I was still fairly certain someone would get it. Oh well. No big deal.
I got all kinds of weird, wild, and awesome guesses on last week’s challenge photo. Alas...
Some people immediately knew this was spaghetti. Sometimes I like when that happens because it forces everyone else to have a little fun and come up with something unique, like... my ear. Yes, that was guessed several times.
I couldn’t really expect you all to guess the bottom half of last week’s challenge photo. However, the top half? A gimme!
Okay, the Macro Monday challenge photo last week wasn’t as tough as I’d promised it would be, judging solely on all who somehow got it. I’m pretty sure I would not have.
There was some heavy participation this past week. Tons of guesses on the blog, Facebook, and Instagram. I like that!
Oh me! Oh my! Two Macro Monday challenge photos in a row that were just too darned easy!
I can’t count on one hand how many people got the challenge photo right. Heck, I can’t count on two hands and two feet how many.
I guess this one was tougher than expected. I really expected at least one person to just throw out, “mouse laser!” Alas...
I did get several people guessing that last week's Macro Monday Challenge Photo was some kind of sports ball. The most popular guesses were basketball and football (of the North American variety). Good thing, because the correct answer was a basketball.
Lots of people got last week’s challenge photo. I expected as such as I left the wrapper underneath it as a clue.
A lot of people got last week’s challenge photo. Because it became so obvious, some of you got creative. I appreciate that. Anyway...
So, um, no one got last week’s challenge photo. And, so far as I can tell, it didn’t post on Facebook. Not sure what happened with that one. Sorry about that.
I know I said that I didn’t expect anyone to get last week’s challenge photo. At least, no one outside my office. So imagine my surprise when two people did get it. Okay, one, as the other is a coworker. Yeah yeah.
I had a really good guess on last week’s challenge photo from Marty that it was a Norelco shaver blade. One of those spinny ones, yanno? I dug it. Alas, it was not correct.
I honestly thought that I didn’t zoom in enough on last week’s challenge photo and that a ton of people would get it immediately. No one did. I zoomed in too much. Clearly.
I actually did have one correct guess on Facebook for last week’s Macro Monday challenge photo. Yes, I gave you all a fake clue. Sorry about that. I was curious to see if you all pay attention to what I write to accompany a posting.
Kazza came closest to the correct answer on last week’s challenge photo with a guess of “Some weird monkey.” Shockingly she, of all people, did not guess LEGO monkey. She’s a LEGO junkie! It’s inconceivable! But this guess will have to do.
I truly was shocked by the number of people who got last week’s challenge photo correct. Way to go!
It’s hard to call this a definitive Macro Monday solution as it is a photo of an unknown succulent that Ren snapped at a restaurant. But here it is (cleverly titled, to boot).
As stated on social media, Macro Monday is all about perspective. Wouldn’t you agree?
As a result of not personally using Facebook anymore, I have no idea if anyone there is actually taking correct stabs at my Macro Monday challenge photos. So, as far as I know, @a_a_astoria on Instagram is the only one who got this...
Last week’s challenge photo was more difficult than I anticipated. But I love the photo so much!
I told you last week’s challenge photo was too easy.
I did get a few correct guesses on last week’s challenge photo. I thought it was tougher than it turned out to be.
Awwww, yeahhhh... CASSETTE TAPES REPRESENT!!
Several people guessed that last week’s challenge photo is a Mason jar. Those several people would be spot-on.
Yup, a few people did indeed guess last week’s challenge photo correctly. No, you didn't need to get as specific as “Superman.” How could you? Alas...
If not for the color distortion, more than just the two or three people who guessed this Macro Monday challenge photo correctly would likely have gotten it.
I get pretty excited when someone who has never correctly guessed a Macro Monday challenge photo finally gets one. It’s pretty darn cool.
Hey, sorry for the delay on this post. Typepad had scheduled maintenance last night and I couldn’t get a post written. So this is gonna be backdated. Anyway...
I guess I had two toughies in a row. No correct guesses. But I knew it would be a difficult one. It was more an attempt to make you look at something common in a different way.
