Mystery Machine by Lightpainter

Tootles: A large hadron collider?? Otherwise I don't know. :-)

LynEve: The inside of a giant telescope. The metal sides open like a concertina for viewing.

What Is It? by corngrowth

questjester: Um ... I like purmusic's suggestion of a birdhouse. The "nose" certainly looks like a perch.

But since that has already been guessed ...

A high-tech, AI, cat burglar?
A portrayal of a Pinocchio parachutist?
What actually turned out to live in that Gnome Apartment tree?! :)
None of the above?

3rd place
Gosh, I Bet This Is... by braces

questjester: Congratulations! :)

Lightpainter: My guess: This is the 2012 Olympic stadium in London.

bfrank: Hi Steve and congrats on your placement in the contest. Just wondering if this was a different angle of this image Listening To The Skies. Anyway it was good one.

4th place
What is this? by Ramad

Flmngseabass: Anyone know what this is yet?:):)

corngrowth: Raj,

Congratulations for your 4th price in the 'What is it?' contest.
Well done!

Best regards, Cornelius.

Lightpainter: Looks like a manual controller for something. It could be a robot, a drone, a Mars lander, a ceiling fan, a computer game. The only problem is if you search for these, none of them look right. We'll just have to wait for the answer.

5th place
What Could It Be by jerseygurl

purmusic: Welllll..

At first, I had convinced myself that this was a macro shot of the side of a glass vase for flowers. Given your shooting proclivities and as evidenced by your personal galleries chockful of gorgeous flowers.

It was only after closer examination that what I thought could be condensation drops, revealed the "drops" to be pitting or imperfections.

As in, those from a stack of DVDs, or CDs.

And that.. is the story I am sticking with.

... ...

p.s. Good good one for the contest.
