One slight problem, I have no idea. It's sort of funny that in looking back through all my old photos I came across a set for a camera club project ten years ago, called "What is it?
I remember all the other things in the set but I have no idea what this was. So I suppose in that sense it is a huge success as it was meant to be a difficult question on the night. I suppose I will never know now the answer to the question "What is it?"
Answers for the rest of the images are in the tags. I'm making you work here.
