Time for another theme email swap, this time our theme will be "What Is This?". The theme was the suggestion of Shutter Me Up member @Lauriez Thank you Lauriez for the wonderful, fun, idea.

For this swap you will photograph a subject for your swap partner to guess what the subject is that you choose. See the photograph above for a example....Can you guess what it is?

What you photograph is up to you, just be as creative as possible.

You may alter your photograph (i.e., Photoshop, PSP, etc.) but not to the point it is impossible for your partner to make a guess on the subject photographed.

Your photo may be in black and white or in color (senders choice).

You will have FIVE (5) partners to email a photograph to in .jpg format. Please attach the photograph to your email to be sure your swap partners receives it. Do Not send links to a Flickr album or a blog for your partners to view your themed photo. Your photo MUST be attached in your email.

Do Not tell your partner in the email what the subject is (keep them guessing).

As you rate your swap partner please add a comment on what you thought the photographed subject was... in return your partner will add a comment and let you know if you are correct or incorrect....If your partner was incorrect please list the subject in your comments so they may check back at their convenience to see how close they where to giving the correct answer.

Newbies with well filled out profiles and swappers in good standing (4.9 or higher) are welcome to join. Please do not sign up for this swap if you have had any 1 ratings or unexplained 3's in the past 3 months.

I will angel the swap if need be after your partner has been rated, but hopefully that will not be the case.

If there are any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me or ask in the comments section below. I will check this page often.

Most of all, have fun! :)

Note: This is a open swap for everyone but we would like encourage you to check out our Shutter Me Up swap group. You may consider this option but is NOT a requirement. The Shutter Me Up group has a photo sharing site (group members don't forget to share your submission at our Flickr site) where you can view everyones photos that submits and a monthly postal photograph swap that is hosted with different themes. If you enjoy sending a receiving photo swaps through the mail check out our group listing HERE.

I asked that everyone guess what the photo is above and when I 1st saw it I thought it was something under a microscope but I was wrong.

Can you guess what it is? I think you might be surprized.

The first thing that jumped to my mind was a carpet..... love the way it is squiggly rubbed out or in LOL

DeniseN10ec 10/22/2010 #

It's not carpet but a good guess.

Coulored hands? :D

charlottenc 10/22/2010 #

I was thinking something knitted, like gloves? With little pompoms??

Nnyla 10/22/2010 #

Wet sand or dirt?

Sillyna511 10/22/2010 #

Kinda looks like s scrubby dish sponge....

DeniseN10ec 10/22/2010 #

None of the above answers are correct but all are good guesses.....Keep guessing....when I assign partners I will put a note here about what the item is.

It has to be from a marker or something! Thats the only thing I can think of that would make that squiggly at the top..and the silver looks like wadded up foil gum wrappers lol

bruxbaby 10/25/2010 #

Is it the bottom of a shoe?

DeniseN10ec 10/25/2010 #

Keep guessing.......... JUst a hint the squiggly part is just a frame to make it harder to see the whole image....Concentrate on the color of the photo.

MandaFace 10/26/2010 #

dirty air conditioning filter? maybe snow or ice of some sort?

DeniseN10ec 10/26/2010 #

@MandaFace you have a good eye.....It is ice....it was from a container that had been in the freezer and the blue underneath is the lid of the container. If I had not seen the whole photo I would have never guessed. Great Job!
