Dan Holm level-classic November 16, 2004

Beautiful abstract, Sanjay! Love the light, strong lines and the red hue!! Excellent!! ... Okay, I'm guessing it's either a dish strainer or some kind of file holder (?) ... #188814

Karen Lewis-Gunn November 16, 2004 provide us such entertainment trying to guess what your macro images actually are! Have to go with Dan on this drainer?? :-) Great job! #915095

S J November 16, 2004

Thank you, Dan and Karen! Thanks for your wonderful comments!'s not dish drainer. I'll be posting the real image some time later today (here it's 4.40pm now). Around 11pm I'll post the original. Pls. keep watching and you'll enjoy #915099

Donna Roberts November 16, 2004

Well Sanjay - I know how you love dismantling things around your home to try and keep us guessing what these fantastic patterns guess is:
You've taken the cover off a personal fan and laid it down to take an 'interior' perspective of it.
I will of course check back later to see what it is though - don't work too hard and I hope you've got through all your *congrats* emails by now LOL
Donna (from "downunder") #915128

Jordi Delgado November 16, 2004

Absolutely impressive image, Sanjay!! Love the color and textures !!!

Could it be a CD holder???

:-)) #915130

Tracy D. Siermachesky November 16, 2004

Awesome abstract. I love the red! I agree with Donna--looks like the cover off of a fan. #915156

Danilo Piccioni November 16, 2004

cool pattern, pattern-man! #915181

Donald K. Cherry level-classic November 16, 2004

Nice macro, Sanjay! I'm gonna guess that its some fancy dinner napkins neatly stacked! #915229

Patty Razonable November 16, 2004

I'm not one for abstract, but I do find them interesting. This looks like a wrought iron and probably is your fan sitting on a background with some kind of lighting to project the shadows. Very, very, interesting.....
Nice work, Sanjay! #915281

Wally Orlowsky November 16, 2004

Terrific pattern and colors, Sanjay. Definitely looks like some kind of wire cage or holder. #915307

Carolyn M. Fletcher level-deluxe November 16, 2004

Alan L. Borror November 16, 2004

Joy Brown November 16, 2004

another awesome abstract, Sanjay! #915514

Allan L. Whitehead November 16, 2004

Marvelous abstract, as always, Sanjay, this looks like a 'leaf rake' especially handy at this time of year. Very well done, my dear friend - your good friend, Allan #915523

Cindy Paquette November 16, 2004

WONDERFUL abstract Sanjay! Love the curve, color and shadows!

Patricia A. Kuniega November 16, 2004

Ooh, la, la! You turned this object into a sexy abstract! What I love about this is all the eye tricks it creates between light and shadow. The more you stare at it the more you see! #915833

Mellanie November 16, 2004

Wow, great abstract, SJ...I have no idea what it is though.... #916382

S J November 16, 2004

Alright! Thanks for all your comments! suggested by Donna, Tracy and Patty, it's the cover of my fan at home. I placed it on a yellow card and then changed the color with MGI Photosuite 8.0 It's one of the most user friendly programs that I'm using. Nothing much special about it like PS but has its own merrit! Thanks again for your wonderful comments! Pls. keep watching..there are a few coming up in a few days. #916468
