Here Comes The Bright

That's Not Defective, Detective

Photographs copyright: DAVID McMAHON


Take a good look at these images. Any idea what I've photographed? It's not a bumble bee. It's not a flying purple people eater. It's not electric cables. Put on your Sherlock Holmes hat and leave me a comment with your theory/ theories ....

Lovely colourful pictures.

Is it a landing pad for bungee jumpers?

David, I'm travelling again and that means a life minus internet till I return. I wish you and your family a great holiday season in advance. Cheers. :)

I think it's those kind of bouncy, spongy, jumping shoes. Kind of like those stilt things with ropes that you hold on to in order to keep your balance.

Is this a psychedelic cable organizer under your desk? ;-)

Casdok said...

Its a.............. I will think on that one!

imac said...

Wild guess here, = some sort of a kiddies bungee jumping toy.
Brill one David. haha.

At the bottom right hand side of the second picture it looks like it might be some sort of grip/handle, like you'd have on a bicycle handle (only multi coloured) but I'm guessing I'm wrong. It has bungee jump written on it but it doesn't look like anything from a real bungee jump. It must be a kids toy of some description but I'm at a bit of a loss as to what. I can't wait for all to be revealed. I think I'm rambling on a bit. It might have been easier just to say I haven't got a clue lol.

Mike said...

I've been having more of a think about this. Is it something a child would stand on and start bouncing about?

holly said...

i think they're shoes, too. a funky colored flip-flop (that's what i'd call them in wyoming). they call them "shower slippers" here in wales.

Melissa said...

It looks like something kids would jump around on!

Guilty Secret said...

Ditto Melissa... that's what I was going to say!

I have no idea but I love the colors!

Lee said...

Discovered! It is a child's bungee jumping toy similar to a pogo stick but using a bungee cord and foam pads instead. I found a full picture on Amazon. To see the whole thing go here.

JOY!

Lee said...

Btw, David, it's really nice to know that someone besides me remembers the lyrics to the One Eyed One Horned Flying Purple People Eater song. (G)

Smiling very large!

Vi vi vi vooom!!!!!!!! said...

oooh, Lee let the cat of the bag! I gather that's available in Oz? I've got to buy my kiddies their chrissy pressies while home, think that one may be on the list!

Colleen said...

Is it a kids toy?

Les Becker said...

I side with Sharon - "Bungee Shoes" or some such. What'd we win? Can I have the shoes? They would be cool, and I probably have an outfit to match.

looks like flip-flop shoes, to me. Those look so fun, would love to have a pair to match my outfits!

Flip flops? A pool toy?

Hammer said...

looks like flip flop shoes.

Cowgirl said...

Looks like a very colourful pair of thongs (the ones that go on your feet) We call them Jandals, some call them Flipflops.

Mushy said...

Some jazzed up flip-flops!

CamiKaos said...

is it a bungee jumping simulation toy for kids?

bonnie said...

kid's toy. that's my guess.

Andrée said...

I was sure it was flip-flops with an unexplained doodle. But he's right; it's that bungee thing Where did you get your hands on that? I hate being wrong.
