Yakkity-Yak


There are at least two people who know what this is (and they're disqualified from saying).
Do you?  Tomorrow you'll find out, I promise.

In the meantime, it reminds me of two friends yakkity-yakking.

[Today I'm in Atlanta.]

All for one and one for allgrin
Ginnie Hart: You are such a good girl, Tracy. You get a biscuit for that! grin Believe it or not, you weren't one of the 2 I was initially talking about, because Donica saw this and knows. You make 3, then. smile
Some sort of clamp?
Ginnie Hart: Definitely a clamp, Chris, but to what??? Thanks for guessing.

I suspect this is a device for restringing racquets. Interesting shot!
Ginnie Hart: Your suspicions will be confirmed one way or the other tomorrow, Martin. Thanks for guessing!!
i like it. great depth of field ginnie. how's the weather in Atlanta? Did you guys miss the horricans
Ginnie Hart: Ohhh. Thanks for asking, Genevieve. We DID miss the hurricanes but not so the many around Tennessee to the north of us. We got lots of rain, which we still desperately need. Thanks again for asking. That means a lot.

It looks like medical equipment used for certain exams, tho' I suspect that's not what it is!

I love your depth of field, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Very good guess, Kay. I like your imagination. smile Tomorrow you'll know for sure. Thanks.
Oh keeping those who weren't photographing out of the loop.. shame on you. smile A tease..

I love it!
Ginnie Hart: Always a tease, Jen. Gotta give a challenge ever so often, you know. smile Thanks.
I wud like to know what this is as well. Good DOF and Macro shot.
Ginnie Hart: You will definitely find out tomorrow, Babul, if you stop by. Thank you for coming today and commenting. That means a lot.

Some sort of vice or clamp...
Ginnie Hart: It is definitely a clamp, Jewlya, but to what? smile Tomorrow you'll know! But thanks for guessing.

Sprakeloos, Ginnie, speechless, I love the B&W, this is how DOF should be presented, the soft tones add to this instrument (I think), I wonder if the one who uses it has that same soft touch handling it, seeing how you presented it, I think that person knows where he/she is talking about, am I right here? I wonder.....for you to say.......wink winkI am really anxious to find out tomorrow, geweldige foto, maar dat kan ik wel aan jou overlaten, tongue
Ginnie Hart: You are soooo right, Astrid. The person who uses this "instrument" has what we call the Midas Touch. The soft touch. Tomorrow you will know for sure and you might be surprised. In the meantime, ontzettend bedankt for your very kind words.
It just looks like a toll to seal bags, no ? See the answer tomorrow ! smile
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, I know what you mean, Flo. I can see your point. Thanks for guessing. But tomorrow you'll know for sure. smile

Just a quick note, I set those two people straight on the gender issue. Hehe.
I cannot hazard a guess, but the tones and dof are great.
Ginnie Hart: HAHA, Aussie. I love your sense of humor. Tomorrow you'll know. smile Thanks.
It's a visual question to asssess the IQ of Bloggers who are susceptible to a challenge. richard
Ginnie Hart: HA! Always up for a challenge, aren't we, Richard. Thanks! Good to see you again.

A very "grappig" title and it reminds me of our meeting with you in Amsterdam where I got know this English word for the first time, and I could be one of these two "things-persons" for sometimes I'm such a "Quatschtante und mein Mundwerk steht nicht still"! (Sorry, can't be translated) My IQ (as Richard trims presumes) isn't so high to guess what...! A very nice idea of you, Ginnie to challenge us...!
Ginnie Hart: Oh yes, Philine. I do remember explaining to you about Yakkity-yakking! grin That was so fun. Your IQ, however, I must say, is through the roof (off the charts), dear lady! You simply haven't been introduced yet to this gadget. Tomorrow you will have an even higher IQ! smile Thanks.

You have got me confused Ginnie. I can only assume it's a clamp of some sort, but your intiguing picture isn't giving anything away!
Ingrid
Ginnie Hart: You are definitely right about the clamp, Ingrid, but to what! I love confusing you! smile Tomorrow you'll totally know. But if it makes you feel any better, I wouldn't have known either!!!
It's definitely a sea horse smile just kidding. I believe it is some sort of clamp
Ginnie Hart: HA! I love the imagination, Kunle! It is definitely a clamp but to what! I wouldn't have known either if I hadn't seen it before. Tomorrow you'll know.

Nice DOF !!! But as we say in France : I give my tongue to the cat ... It means that I don't have any idea about what it could be ... Maybe something on a bicycle.
Ginnie Hart: I love that expression, Ann. I'll have to remember that! I like the bicycle guess. That's a good one. Tomorrow you'll know for sure. smile
Nice abstract shot Ginnie - not even going to guess what it is!
Ginnie Hart: Chicken! HA! Just kidding, Bernie. I would have had no clue if I hadn't seen it for myself! Thanks.
It looks like some sort of clasp !! Nice shot anyhow !!
Ginnie Hart: Check in tomorrow, Shakara, and you'll know for sure. (I am so bad!)
Lol! I really cannot know that he is this, but I like the form that you must to present/display it. It is an enigma and we will be pending for morning! P.D.: I see today that both we have chosen the subject of the focus,! wink
Ginnie Hart: Yes, José-Angel. Today we are both on the same page. smile Thanks for checking in.

Looks a little like a rest for a fishing rod.
Ginnie Hart: Good guess, Mick. I like your imagination. I can see what you're saying. smile Thanks. Tomorrow you'll know for sure.

Ha! You have rotated left 90 to confuse us.
But it is obvious...it is a padded chin-rest for folks who chin-wag too much!
Ginnie Hart: Who, ME? Confuse YOU? No rotation whatsoever, Ray. But I love your guess. Tomorrow you'll know for sure. smile

Ginnie Hart: Good guess, Vintage. I'm impressed. smile Thanks.

Some kind of cutter?
Ginnie Hart: Good guess, Ruth. smile I'm impressed. Tomorrow you'll know for sure. Thanks.

The yakkity-yaks looks like something to run wire or string through. But I will come back tomorrow and check what it is. My official guess for today is that you use it in your dungeon grin Like for S&M.

Great mystery picture.
Ginnie Hart: HA! I LOVE IT. The best guess yet, Louis. Why am I not surprised. grin Yes, tomorrow you'll know.
I think this is a device to clamp in wooden implements that have been glued together and have to dry.
Ginnie Hart: That's a great guess, Wim. Something we all need from time to time! Tomorrow you'll know. Thanks for guessing.
Hmmm Ginnie, I am not one of those 2 people, but I ques I could be for a Caravan behind your car (een trekker)And.... You are back in Atlanta!!!

We did Not go On w..., see my blog what I mean. Hug from JoAnn
Ginnie Hart: Yes, I am back in Atlanta, JoAnn, for almost a week now. The time just flies. Good guess on what this is. Tomorrow you'll know for sure. smile
I have no idea. However, great perspective and DOF. Love it.
Ginnie Hart: HA! Well, you'll find out tomorrow, for sure. Good to see you again, Gail!

no idea, been back a couple of times, can't work it out! I like it though, lol. mal
Ginnie Hart: HA! Well, if it helps, Mal, I would have had no clue either! But now that I know, it makes perfect sense. Hope to surprise you tomorrow. smile
Very good DOF
Ginnie Hart: Glad you like it, Chantal.

Besides the fact that I love the B&W and the DOF, I Luuuuuvvvve mysteries! Right now I'm guessing that this is a clamp for a glasscutter. I can't wait for the revealing of the secret! Have a nice day smile
Ginnie Hart: Awwww. You've made my day, Fausto, with all your enthusiasm. smile Thanks.
I haven't got a clue Ginnie, but it's a nice composition with a great DOF.
Ginnie Hart: This is so much fun, Richard. Maybe you'll be pleasantly surprised tomorrow? smile

Great close-up shot, perfect DOF. Especially like the B&W it really brings out the contrasts and details. Very nice image.
Ginnie Hart: This was so fun to do, John. Glad you like it. BUT your link isn't coming through again. sad Maybe I can find you by Googling your name.
Just got back from work Ginnie ... I know one thing though it isn't a bowl of custard. richard
Ginnie Hart: LOL,Richard. You are very right!!! grin

Is it part of a giant sewing machine?
Ginnie Hart: Wouldn't THAT be nice, Chad! An industrial sewing machine can get so much accomplished in a short period of time. Good guess. smile

I wonder if it's one of those rails you put a camera on to be absolutely sure of close focus? Probably not, but I thought I'd keep to a photographic idea. wink

Love the way you've isolated the foreground yet kept some hint of the background

Did you use the word pronking yet? wink
Ginnie Hart: HA! I love the photographic idea, Ellie. Good guess.

Sadly, I have NOT yet used "pronking" in a sentence...except in my mind. It's just waiting to get out, though. Just wait and see. smile
Belle composition. J'adore ce noir et blanc, cette pureté de l'image. Merci
Amicalement. Francis
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Francis, for stopping by and commenting. I have tried to leave a comment on your site but it wouldn't take. I will try again later.

Too tired to guess Ginnie - I think I shall just wait for the answer ;o) Nice range of tones tho' which is much more important ;o)
Ginnie Hart: Your answer is now here, Mike. smile Glad you like the range of tones. smile

Not a clue Ginnie, you can have a guess at my shot tomorrow. smile
Ginnie Hart: I did my guess, Chris. Good tit for tat. grin
That's why the lady is a clamp!

No idea Ginnie!!!
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHAHA! I love it, Bill. And as you'll see today (Friday), Astrid is the lady! smile

Ginnie Hart: You're a real sweetheart, Still. smile Thanks.

It looks like some clamp device for holding sheet glass. For etching, or stain glass work maybe? smile
Ginnie Hart: Wow, Dave. Good guess. I like that. It's not the right guess but I can see your POV. smile Thnks.
I haven't the faintest idea Ginnie, wish I did. I've read everyone's comments and think Dave's idea of a clamping device for holding sheets of glass is a great idea but then you wouldn't need the clamp to be so big. Looks more like it's supposed to hold in place a block of something. Is it used for making picture frames? Did someone say that - there are too many comments to read through again! I'm intrigued!
Ginnie Hart: Actually, making picture frames is a great guess, Jose-Ann. You're the first to say that. I would like a gadget like that! Not the right guess but still a good one! smile Thanks.

Ginnie Hart: Awwww. Thanks, Helen. It was a fun "game" to play. smile

I like the BW conversion a lot, if it wasn't for the fact that I have seen todays pic I would have no idea what this is grin and I like not knowing...
Ginnie Hart: It's so fun to see that this was a new experience for almost all of us, Aksel. It was for me when I watched her. So educational. Glad you like a good mystery. smile

gringrin The title is just so great!!
(I already know what I'm looking at, because I've already seen the "tomorrow photo" -I've missed the suspense smile)
I love this kind of visual game, where the object becomes something else, bringing a challenge to the viewer.
Ginnie Hart: You tickle me, Lina. I know I'd love to yakkity-yak with you some day! smile
I can't imagine what it is ! Very unusual shot - I like it !
Ginnie Hart: Now you know that it's one of the clamps on the racket-stringing "machine." smile
