Solve This Puzzle: What Is This Mystery Object?

Artist's Description

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

Spoiler alert: do not read any further unless you want to see the answer.

FIRST PART OF THE PUZZLE solved by Linda Bianic, who is unbeaten over three weekends. She correctly identified the object as part of a series of giant sculptures on the Sandridge Bridge here in Melbourne.

SECOND PART OF THE PUZZLE: what are the sculptures called? Solved (again) by Linda Bianic, who correctly answered that they are called The Travellers. In fact, you can see some of my images of the full-size figures on my own blog, at the post Action Figures – to give you an idea of their size, and the fact that they actually move up and down the bridge!

THIRD PART OF THE PUZZLE: what is the building in the background? Another clean sweep for Canadian Red Bubbler Linda Bianic, who correctly identified it as the Rialto.

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, 1/500sec, ISO 200, focal length 120mm.

Featured in CONTRASTING PERCEPTIONS, March 2010.
