Mystery theme

by Stefan Fletcher June. 13, 2009 4045 views

I'm stuck in my office working, to quote the immortal bard, like a blue-arsed fly, so of course I'd rather be seeing friends, roasting to a crisp red at the beach or taking photographs. Basically, anything other than what I'm doing now.

As I'm chained to my desk, I can only take the occasional break. There's a (bad) 50 mm prime lens on my camera. I thought I shoot off some images with a common theme, and it's up to you to guess what that theme is.

This is a bit like Jon's macro quizzes (only not as much fun). The answer is a single word. None of the images were altered, except for a touch of sharpening.

This is by no means a test of your perspicacity or even my ability to take expressive photographs. I'm merely curious about how we all see the same things.

Each image was taken between paragraphs of an annual report with the aim of keeping me awake. There is no order or hidden meaning.

Answer posted soon.

16/6/09: and in case anyone was wondering, the theme I botched here was "heat".

I thought the air-conditioner was a giveaway, but my other bad photographs must have clouded the issue…

As mentioned above, the theme was "[b]heat[/b]"

Nice idea. My one word is "Morning" or perhaps if you're that unhappy at work "Mourning".

There seem to be several hints of a "shutters" theme, but perhaps it's way more subtle than that....:–)
