Yup. Cymbal from a drum set - NICE shot, David!

whatever it is it's a terrific picture

ellen b said...

Well I'll be back to see the answer...
Happy Ww..

Burfica said...

I say cymbol too. That or an oriental hat.

Craver Vii said...

(Ignoring previous comments) Beats me. I'm trying hard to see what ideas I can drum up, but perhaps it will come to me if I stick with it. Is "symbolic image" a clue?

Gotta go... I think I just heard something crash.

Sandy Carlson said...

Beautiful. Your title suggests cymbal, but my imagination suggests a straw hat. I'll be back to find out. Thanks for the WW fun!

impworks said...

Well I'm going to go with a cymbal too.

Great shot :-)

David, I'm seeing stacked wood. At first I was thinking tennis racket frame but the shape is wrong. Maybe a stacked heel on a woman's shoe? They used to make them out of that before they started doing all kinds of plastic ones. Am I close?

Peace!

Liza said...

Great shot! I'd like to know what it is. Happy WW!

Misty Dawn said...

I say cymbal, but that's so boring, because everyone else already said it!

Ummm... how bout a really cool lampshade?!?!

Mar said...

It looks like a part of a drum set...
excellent shot!

Somebody with an abnormally uniform thumb-print????? I have blogged too, twice!!

Mahina said...

everyone took my guess! drum cymbals! i love craver vii's comment! very creative!

Nap Warden said...

Put me in the cymbol camp...

TopChamp said...

cymbal was gonna be my guess too. Are there differing spellings here because the word is spelt differently across the world or do you think it's just spelling mistakes?

OMG! Deja Vue! Jonah banging clanging making music on the porch!

Wooo ... Hooo!

Managed to create a 'link' to the post. Still a way to go to iron out the wrinkles before I post something about how to achieve it, but you can click on the "Links to this post" bit and follow the link to see what I mean.

You'll find my answer at the end of the trail ...

Interesting image to say the least! With cymbal already taken I won’t even hazard a guess.

Thanks for dropping by Country Captures.
I appreciate your nice comment.

Symbol"ic"...cymbol.

Looks like many folks knew from the get-go!

Happy WW!

eastcoastlife said...

I have no idea. Whenever I see such designs, I love to run my fingers down the concentric circles, like going down the steps.....

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

Way too easy, even when I feel this lousy. Cymbal. Probably not a Zildjian. Definitely old and in need of some polish.

Beware lousy drummers... we know it all until you ask us to keep a beat.

David,
There are 2 clues that you've given to suggest it is a CYMBAL:

CLUE 1: This Is Simply A Symbolic Image

CLUE 2: Right click on the image and the filename says "qcymbal1".

Forget the clues, and I see a Hat, a lampshade, the back of a really fat man (what you see is the shirt) [sitting in a pub].... ok let me stop before i get too creative!

cheers

I'd go for an LP record. I'll check again.

David said...

i thought cymbal or lampshade too. Seems a lot of people guessed the same! :)

Rachelle said...

well, seeing as how I am the mother of a musician, and have heard these many times, playing in my dreams...
It is very symbolic, isn't it?
