“i want something else now, something warm and sheltering, something I can turn to, regardless of what I do, regardless of who I become, something that will just be there, always, like tomorrow’s sky”
― kazuo ishiguro, when we were orphans
justine has challenged us again to present a photo and invite you to guess what
so, here is

It is interesting that Ishiguro speaks about something rather than someone, which might be equally important. Speaking about things, though, my guess is that the supposedly thinly veiled vandalised photo might represent a room of one’s own, to steal the quote from Woolf?
I think, as you have seen, that someone could easily take the place of something in this quote.
“Lock up your libraries if you like; but there is no gate, no lock, no bolt that you can set upon the freedom of my mind.” VW
Thank you. Anyone who quotes VW is my hero.
I was inspired by someone.
Oooh thank you for joining in to Eclectic Corner and hrrrm i am scratching my head wondering.
I read maras comment on it being a vandalised photo i didnt see that so thats thrown me. Is it?
I saw it perhaps as some kind of makeshift carboard home with graffitti on or some kind of sprayed material that gives shelter for people on tne streets? As always an intriguing shot hmmm haha got my mind whirling as do the words 🙂
You are warm, there are people involved and perhaps the people are happy to emerge from the shelter?
hrrmmmmm i am still guessing, pondering and searching!
Keep on guessing, and I do love this challenge! x
thank you i am glad you like it, i have guessed again, my brain is hurting now lol
Hmmnnnn, very tricky…I’m with Justine on the cardboard idea at the moment, but there’s a section, bottom left, that intrigues me……..
When I posted this I thought everyone would see it immediately, so I’m now enjoying this more than I thought! Like Justine, you are quite warm.
I thought the same about mine! Ok will keep studying…..
Ok, now I’m using the same guess that I just used on Mara’s – a book cover (book jacket)?
No, and it’s uncovered although protected…
Well that’s just frustrating!! 😄😃😀
Have another guess?
Lol besides graffitti.. No clue.. Tho as desley pointed out, there looks like a finger print at the bottom left??
Graffiti yes red hot, finger print…seems to be an artifact of the filter…but the subject?
Graffitti on the seemingly impossible, an airplane! Lol
Much more down to earth than that Albert 😉
OK I think it is metal and the side of a van with graffitti on? lolol…go on tell me i got it right yes? haha
Graffiti, yes. Van, no…. 😉
omg everyones post this time for the Guessing Games are really hard and totally doing my head in lol, driving me insane. Now I know the grand reveal is this Saturday so i really want to guess it hehe, time for a hint yet a clue yes yes? So it is a shelter of some kind, for people? It looks like metal or plastic with graffitti on, so it has to be for humans i guess? OMG I have run out of ideas!!! HELP
Humans are involved, as is shelter of sorts, but no metal or plastic…
oh crickey it just gets harder…oh lots of umbrellas?
No umbrellas although like rain the protective element does have a liquid element I guess.
oh crickey now was that comment meant to make it easier? come on another clue please its nearly saturday haha
Well, the theme is about protection. Need to think laterally about that I guess?
i think i need a drink to get anywhere near guessing what this is lol, are you bringing some today to tea? x
I will try to will be late…
that’s ok, better late than never 🙂 there are days yet until it ends hehe x
Beer has been served this time
