Is it a tater tot?

It's not a tater tot. I'm leaving to go shoot a job so I probably won't be online all day. You guys post your guesses and I'll be back online around 6 or 7 pm. (EDT)

how about a potato chip?

DaveG said...

Looks like a sponge, but I can't explain the flecks of red. Unless, of course, Tuesday is dish washing day :-).

Robert said...

It's a whole grain bread slice.

Is it WV pepper jelly?

popcorn?

io said...

carrot bread?

DaveG said...

Hmmm, the bread proponents might be on to something. Does Panera have free wi-fi in Charleston?

CJ said...

Looks like the material used to represent the brain in Fantastic Voyage.

Popcorn

Blair said...

that has to be bread, a slice of it~

Kim said...

It's carmel corn....

Rick Lee said...

Robert Ding got it first and got it exactly right. It's a slice of whole grain bread. The trick is that it's lit from behind. I showed it to several people this morning (offline) and they all were completely stumped, so good on ya for that guess. BTW Robert, I looked at your blogsite and it's really interesting. I have vacationed in England several times so I'll be studying your walks for future reference. (see my pastel painting from England here.)

Kim said...

Rick, those pastels are stunning!

Rick Lee said...

Thanks Kim! I was really getting into painting for a few years but I found that it was taking away from my photography... which is my bread and butter... so I backed away from it for a while. I'll do more sometime in the future.
