Put on your thinking caps, have as many guesses as you want – but most of all, have fun. Your time starts … NOW!

Spoiler alert: do not read any further, unless you want the answer revealed.

Solved by Mark Tull, who identified the mystery object as graduation gowns, or masonic aprons (after Alixzandra got us off to a flying start with the opening guess).

Second part of the question: what was the name of the character played by Dustin Hoffman in the film “The Graduate”? Solved by Alixzandra, who answered Benjamin Braddock.

Third part of the question: What were the names of the Harvard students played by Ryan O’Neal and Ali MacGraw in “Love Story”? Solved by EllisMorleyPhoto, who answered Oliver and Jenny.

I do not crop, enhance or post-edit my images in any way. Shot with a Pentax K100D, using a Sigma 18-125mm lens. F5.6, 1/125 sec, ISO 200, focal length 125mm.

    P.S. A flag ?

  • The colours don’t actually interlock …. no, not a flag, but what a good guess.
