    OK, this is going to be an interesting voting period. As a reminder, our topic last week was on "What is it?", which requires participants to snap a photo of common objects, but in an interesting way so as to let members guess at what they are. You have the ability to participate in guessing which photo corresponds to which object and be listed with the winners of the photo contest.

    Listed below are the photos, and then a list of objects. Simply match the photo number with the object letter. PLEASE SUBMIT YOUR ANSWER TO ME VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE ONLY! Also note that participants in this week's contest are disqualified from participating in this part of the contest.

    Wow. No votes so far!

    Please note that EVERYONE can vote! Only the participants (and of course, yours truly) are the only ones who are disqualified from guessing the description of the photos.

    If I may interject- I thought 'phase 2' would involve guessing what the subjects of the images are, rather than choosing from a list. For example, I thought Borek was re-creating a certain scene from "The Shining".... my $0.02.

    I decided to give a list to make it easier. Otherwise, I see a lot of difficulties in narrowing down what each object really is. Most games of this type tend to offer such a list to choose from.

    I understand your point. As a submitter, I tried to deliberately create an ambiguous image- I figured part of the fun would be the range of guesses, before 'the big reveal'.

    Perhaps a list that is 2 or 3 times larger than the number of submissions with selections that might be valid?

    Final day to cast your vote for this contest, and also the last day to submit your guesses of the objects in these photos.

    I really liked Borek's photo. I thought it was a burnt match. That is, a burnt wooden match, like this, not like this.
