      I will never guess!

      It is not a window or a glass because there is a reflection of the knob as with a mirror. Some kind of reflector in an old camera. The prism is like what we see in a mirror at times.

      I want it to be the window of the front door of my new home!

      edit:
      yes of course, I cannot help it. It is in my curious nature
      Yes I do have a knack for this...!

      No guesses? Then what do you want it to be? The eye of the beholder can be purely aspirational...

      edit: so you are guessing now... =) and you have a knack for this...

      I see a door in the dark part of the picture on the left.
      There must be a stained glass window that is reflected in the mirror.
      It could be a church window.

      To me is a very small thing, like a closeup of the viewfinder of a camera. As well... I thought it could be maybe a bigger thing (hand size) and that you had gone to the movies and had been able to take a closeup picture from beside of the projector at work.

      So then I have to think of the movie too...! For me the movie could have been: Ice Age 2. =D

      Guess: inside of an oven, or a heating furnace.

      Wish: When I look at it, something whispers "Close encounters of the third kind".

      Optical sensor of some sort

      Bingo Benjiman. Are you a new winner?

      Mimosa and Alieness sensed the big picture – it’s inside a camera.

      This is a photo into the barrel of the Canon 5D during a sensor clean.


      The mirror flips out of the way to revel the colorful gem within – the 12.8 Megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor that electronically captures the image. It is HUGE compared to the 3MP and 5MP versions I have removed from other cameras:
      Silicon Eye

      It also has a low pass filter integrated into the cover glass, so I don’t know if the rainbow is diffraction from the filter or the underlying sensors.

      We were quick!

      Mirror, reflection, reflector, camera, prism, hum, I was close enough, considering that I started out the first second saying I'll never guess. I am happy.

      Do we get a marking?

      Mark me as late to the show again... :-(

      Congrats, Benjiman!

      Congrats Benjiman!

      J, are you already disassembling your cannon?! It doesn´t even had 5 months with you... little time for a lady (and such a lady) to feel comfortable, you know, doing exhibitionism over the table! :-P

      I would like to thank the Academy... ;)

      So what are you using to clean that big mofo? I'm gearing up for my own DSLR purchase soon (D200 maybe?) and wonder a lot about the delicate cleaning rituals involved...

    12. jurvetson 108 months ago | reply

      Ben: Don't take advice from me... I held it upside down and blew up into the opening with my mouth... I need to get a dry air blower of some sort...

      Alieness: no disassembly yet... but yes, a disrobing made her blush...

      Mimosa: a puzzling mark perhaps in the international hall of fame...

    13. !MimosaMicheMichelle! 108 months ago | reply

      Ah, if working on the puzzles is what we have to do to be famous in Flickr...! LOL International, that is quite true.

      Ahh, a full frame slr, that's what we all should be using (envy!!)

    15. Automatt 107 months ago | reply

      I want it to be in my hot little hands.
      Full-frame is teh r0x0r.
      I am jealous of the 5D. I thought about a full-frame EOS instead of the 30D since I just upgraded, but then I would have to get a new favorite lens -- the 10-22 I've been rocking with won't fit.
