What in the world?



It's pretty obvious I'm on vacation here.  I'm so relaxed, I'm only writing for myself, so it looks like the best I'm going to be able to post is pictures.  But here are are a couple of amazing photos off some pretty common stuff. What ARE they?  I'd love to hear your guesses, but first should confess: I had no clue what either of these was until I saw the captions.  I'll post the answers Friday morning. I'll be so impressed if anyone guesses what either one of these is without cheating!  Take your best shot.

I think the bottom one might be a Ferris wheel, because that is the only thing I can think of that goes around and has lights on it.

But, I'm still working on the top picutre }-:

I have until Friday morning, right...

You'll probably laugh at this, but I keep thinking baby duckling for the top one!

Lyn-The only guess I could come up with on that one was a UFO . . . at least you stayed within this reality!

And Shelly-Baby duckling! I can totally see that . . . but it'd have to be a dang BIG duck to be that big as a baby!

Okay....I'll give you that. A duck with hair?

I totally thought of a baby duckling or cygnet for the first picture too...but then after reading Annie's reply I am going to guess again. could it be a breaking water balloon that someone is catching?

The second picture is definitely one of those roulette tables (is that what they call them?) lit up and spinning at the casino. The spot is the ball suspended in air, just about ready to land on a lucky number.

Can't wait to find out the answers!

I think that Luanne is right about the first picture being a water balloon breaking. If it is, that was some talented photographer...

And, I'm sticking with Ferris wheel for the second picture...

This has been fun and very intriguing!! I hope there are more pictures from wherever you got these two... :-D
