Last week, I missed the 9th edition of “What’s This?”.  On Wednesday the rather long previous day left me without the time to prepare for it, and on Thursday I was wrapped up in the Firmware Upgrade posting, that the weekly “What’s This?” just plain slipped my mind – like Denny Crane from Boston Legal, I must have Mad Cow Disease! 🙂

Rest assured, fellow bloggers, photogs, and CB readers all, I have remembered this week to make such a post.  Since there is nothing to reveal from last week, I’ll just get right to it – here’s this week’s mystery shot.  If you can identify it, then answer in the comments for:

What’s This? – Week 9

What's This? - Week 9

The first to get it right is the winner! Until tomorrow, fellow photogs, happy shooting and watch those apertures!

ETA:  I listened to the latest episode of TWIP (over at and realized the Aperture  Nature Workshop Contest is almost over.  I hastily added my latest landscape image to the contest, and have virtually no hope of winning, but in case anyone else has time to upload a quality photo (or wants to stop in and vote for mine), the contest link to sign up for free and submit images (also free) is here:

  1. If that’s the case, then this piano is very well protected (and for those of you just joining, Michael was correct – this is a set of piano keys, shot wide open to introduce as much blur as possible (f3.5). I then cropped to further make it more challenging. Job well done goes to Michael for deciphering the shot. Thanks to all who commented on the post and who shared thoughts via email.

  2. I was going to comment on the dust issue, but as my wife says…dust is a protective covering for our furniture. 🙂

  3. Interesting observation Michael – although if it were piano keys, then that would mean I need to get my duster out.

    For what it’s worth – I am not much of a duster! 🙂

  4. Brian – thanks for sharing your thoughts on it, but it is not a grill grate. I can see how it could be viewed like that, but venture another guess if you like! 🙂

    Deigh – I’ll stop over and take a look, thanks. Although I don’t really have much pull with Canon (otherwise I’d be shooting with a 1DsMark III)

    I hope you read the blog on the PixelatedImage today – about Canon service – so true and so frustrating – I love Canon equipment but David is right on with the service – please pass this note on to Canon – their service department sucks.
