For those people who like more geometrical patterns. I would have made this one a game but even someone who looked at this thing ever day would probably not guess it.

One guess would be the roof of the Tacoma Dome but I think they tore that down recently. That also looks a little like the domed screen in the Omnimax (IMAX) theater at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI).

You didn't want to make it a game but by not saying what it is, you have done so by default!

Another great shot!

Oops. I did intend to say what it is but when I was posting all of the patterns I forgot to say what it is. Your guesses are interesting but off in size buy 100X and 10X. Because I goofed I guess we can make it a game. I will give some clues thou.



All the photos from my last batch of challenge posts I took in one hour from down here in Lake Charles LA. This is something (or something like it) you may have seen on the news. It is something that is transported and works best out side.

Nope. It is all metal. It doesn't hold anything. At lest if it is to work correctly it should be empty. It is like a mirror but you will never see your self in it.

OK, it has to be a microwave satellite dish. Mirror=Reflector! The active element of the antenna is just out of sight.

Tacoma Dome is still standing - it was the Kingdome in Seattle they imploded a couple of years ago...
