Artist's Description

Put your thinking caps on and, most of all, have fun! You can have as many guesses as you want. (1,005 views on 16 September 2014)

The first part of the puzzle has been solved. The second part is: IN WHAT WAY ARE THESE OBJECTS CONNECTED WITH CHARLES DODGSON? And the third part of the puzzle is: WHERE DID I SHOOT THIS IMAGE?

Spoiler alert: Do not read any further unless you want to see the answer to the first part. Ranald correctly identified the object and Julie Everhart correctly identified the objects as hookahs.

Julie Everhart also correctly answered that the connection is the caterpillar who smokes a hookah in “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland”. Woodie and Linda Bianic correctly answered that the book was written by Lewis Carroll, whose real name was the Rev Charles Dodgson.

And the third part was also solved by Linda Bianic who kept the Canadian flag flying outside the Winter Olympics competition, by correctly answering that I shot this in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in January this year.

I do not crop, enhance or post-edit my images in any way. Shot with a Pentax K100D, using a Sigma 18-125mm lens. F8, 1/90 sec, ISO 400, focal length 88mm.

Featured in ALPHABET SOUP – LETTER H, February 2010.
