Here's a shot from the archives. It should be pretty easy. Shot with Minolta S414. I'll give more info after a couple guesses are posted.

It looks like snow melting on a plastic chair, though I can't explain the gaping mouth shape at the bottom. Interesting.

At first, I was with Steve. However, a chair does not necessarily cool you down. So, did you use that description to confuse us, Cal?

Looks like a Pokemon character!!

A plastic lawn chair with melting snow is my guess. Cool shot, (no pun intended) the blue pops out due to the white of the snow.

Mugmar is correct. This shot was taken after one of the infrequent snowfalls we get in the Portland area. When the snow initially fell, it collected on the solid parts of the chaise lounge. After the storm was over, it warmed up a bit and the snow began to melt. As it melted, it moved toware the center of the chaise and collected over the open slots. The snow accross the end drooped down over the end creating the mouth illusion.
