Day 142 – 03/27/11 – Many Holes

Today’s image is another in the Holes series.  This was one of the ones in the ideas file, and I like the way it came out.  There is a hint image further down the page, though I don’t know if it will be necessary.

A series of colorful holes.

Hint below, pause here if you want time to think about it.  Otherwise scroll away.




If you’ve come this far you either know the answer, or want a hint anyway, so it won’t hurt to tell you that what appears to be swirling around in those holes is actually nothing more than reflected light.



Here’s the hint image:

      Thanks Mindy! I forgot to get a hint image for Metal Holes yet again today, sorry. If it helps, here’s a text hint – I’d have to go to the garage to get the image…

    Great idea and well executed

  4. Yup, didn’t need the hint on this one! I like both images, but out of the two, the first one. Really like how the light is hitting the straws, what a good idea!

    • Jim Reed says:

      Thanks David! I admit the light coming through the straws was a happy accident. When I set the bundle down and looked through them there were a ton of reflections. It was really interesting to watch the light play inside the straws as I moved my hand around to block the light above or behind the straws.
