Mystery Challenge Solved: Week 1

We’ve always told you that being a member of the Excio Photo Community is fun! Each week in April our members are able to take part in the Mystery Photo Challenge turning ordinary things around the house into extraordinary. Last week the challenge was to capture something mundane from a new angle or with different cropping to make people guess what was in the photo.


The comments from our Facebook post show that nearly all photos were guessed correctly but for those where there were any wrong guesses or doubts, see below for the correct explanation! It is interesting to see how some object are so hard to recognize when you put a creative twist on them.


Creating mystery with photography only proves that photographers are magicians and their camera is their magic wand!


Keep an eye on our Blog posts next week to see the new entries. If you are not a member yet, sign up and take part in the challenges here.

"One of my other hobbies is to paint animal sculls, so l asked my vet friend if she could organize a bull nose ring for me , as l wanted to place one around nasal passage of the scull. l wanted it to look a bit more rebellious."
