Kids at Heart — A Photo Journal

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

As a kid, I remember being fascinated how things look really close up. In various kids’ magazines, there was quiz to guess the identity of such bizarre closeups. Ultimately, this taught us that what you “see” is not always what “you get.” Today, I thought we’d revisit our childhood and try to identify closeups of common items. There is also a method in this madness. Because as with objects, unfortunately people, especially politicians, are not always who they seem. However, with politicians, we don’t have the opportunity to look closely into their mouths, their finger tips or their brains. Hence, we need to be on guard, especially during pre-election time! So without further “ado” (as they say in the talk shows and arcades), less begin!

Instructions: Below are a series of 25 photographs (courtesy of the the author).  Please study them carefully and try to guess what each object is.  Each picture is labeled by PIC 1, PIC 2, etc.  When you are finished, check the answer key found at the bottom of the page.  Good luck!
