RRC: Guess What This Is

"It is one of the commonest of mistakes to consider that the limit of our power of perception is also the limit of all there is to perceive."

-C.W. Leadbeater

RRC: "Guess What This Is"
Suggested by Lisa, of the blog, Lisa's Chaos

Any ideas? Is it a cover of some sort? I place mat? Maybe it's a test pattern? Here's a clue... if you know me very well, you will be able to come up with the answer.

Good Luck!

I will post the reveal in an update to this entry on Monday! Don't forget to come back at that time!

The Reveal...

Like I said, if you know me, you might be able to figure out what this is. Well, you know I love art and museums... right? Well this image is a photograph of a work done by Gerhard Richter and it is titled, "Strontium." It hangs in the main court at the De Young Museum in Golden Gate Park, in San Francisco. It's one of my favorite pieces in the whole museum. When I go there, and I see it, it's like visiting an old friend!

Here is a gallery from the artist's website. It will give you an idea of it's scale.

Okay, you have seen my entry for the challenge, now it's time to go see what everyone else has come up with!

Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot #98: Summer Treats

"There shall be eternal summer in the grateful heart."

-Wallace Stevens

Is there anything better then a dish of strawberries on a hot summer day? Nope. Unless it's an ice cream bar fresh off an ice cream truck. How about an ice cold glass of lemonade? SUMMER TREATS are just the best, and that is what I want to see from you this week. SUMMER TREATS!

Extra Credit: Show me your favorite SUMMER TREAT when you were a child. Mine is shown above! :)
