Friday night guessing game


Can you guess what this is? This is straight off the camera I didn't do a thing to it.

I could, of course, just give you the answer right away. But what fun would that be?

As for me and my new camera we have done a lot of playing together. I've tried out a few different things but I have to admit that I really don't know the camera all that well. I probably should read the manual that came with it but I have such a hard time with things like that. They are so boring to me and half the time I don't understand what it's saying anyway. With my last camera I did read the manual. Well sort of. The problem was, I would have to read a sentence several times before I could understand it. It's a darn good thing I'm not in school any more because I would probably flunk out.

Enough of the filler. I'll just give you the answer and you can go on with your weekend. I took the picture through the front window. It was starting to get dark out and there was a car going down the street so I just focused on something and then followed the car as I took the picture. I'm not sure if it's my imagination or not but it almost looks like the outline of a car underneath the big white line. Either that or it's from the huge pile of snow out there. The large white line near the top I believe was from the light that was shining from the top of my neighbors garage.

I've had my camera over two years and still haven't read the manual. Boring! I had guessed what the picture was before you said but the neighbor's garage light threw me off!

Roschelle said...

I was sort of right....I thought you had took the picture whilst in a moving car!!...I think when you do the guessing games Ann maybe you should put the answers in your next post so people really have to think about it!!

Jude said...

I had no clue what it was and didn't even attempt to guess, yea I know I'm a party pooper.

FishHawk said...

Woof! This happens to my mom's camera often. Out guess is just the "ground." My mom is planning to get a new camera ... has a zooming capabilities. Do you like your new camera? Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

Jen said...

Well I guess lightning bugs on crack is out (that would have been my first guess :o) It does look like the outline of a car underneath though - pretty cool.
I gave you (and Duke) a blog award, it's on my blog if you'd like to come pick it up (sorry, but that's what you get for having such an enjoyable blog ;o)

DK Miller said...

PJ said...

i had no clue what that was...lol, never would've guessed that.

Donna said...

It's STILL a cool shot!! Happy weekend sweetie!hughugs

Don said...

Time lapsed pics can be really cool. What kind of camera did you use for that shot?

vickie said...

I never would've guessed. Cool picture!

Ann said...

SGR I LOVE my new camera. I actually did this picture on purpose...lol

Jen wow thanks, I'm so bad at posting those darn things though, I way behind and think I lost track of some of them, I do appreciate it though, you are too kind

DKMiller well I suppose it could have been and while you were looking at it it was on a computer screen so that's probably what threw you off..lol

PJ aw that's ok, hugs to you too

Donna, happy weekend to you too

Don I just recently bough a new DSLR it's the Sony A300

Vickie, Only reason I knew was because I took the pic...lol

LDH said...

I was on the right track... cool shot. Looks like you are learning your camera quite well :)

Duni said...

Ha! I almost got it right. When I looked at the picture I thought it was a street light reflecting off the hood of a car at night.
I never read manuals, I just play around with new gadgets until I 'get' it.

Happy Sunday,

Duni

Ann said...

LDH well I think it's mostly just trial and error...lol

Duni, I've always been a hands on type of of person. I learn better from doing than from watching or reading
