It is time again for another installment of Wednesday’s “What is It?”. Inspired by fellow blogger, Leonore, I challenge you to guess what my picture is today. Though I hope to stump you with each photo I post on Wednesdays, I fear this is another easy one.
Create your own photo challenge, and join me on Wednesdays. Tag your post with ‘mystery photo’, and use the hash-tag #mysteryphoto on Twitter.
I have no prizes for the winner. Alas, other than the pride that stems from identifying the picture correctly, what does one need for reward? So, what is it? Leave a comment, letting me know what you think the photo shows. I’ll tell you the answer in my post on Friday. (If you click on the photo to enlarge it, you will need to use the back-arrow to return to the post.)
NOTE: I am making all comments ‘pending approval’, so everyone can guess on their own. Comments will be ‘released’ on Friday.

The receiving end for a buckle is my thought: like a seatbelt or for clicking in to a ski.
Good guess, Byronic. You were not alone in your guess. I hope you’ll come back next week… assuming I have something for next week.
Thanks for playing!
The back side of some sort of pedal… Like something used to operate a sewing machine? AND because I know you sew ALL THE TIME this could EASILY be what this is a picture of. 🙂
You know, I pulled out my sewing machine and pondered using it as the mystery object. Now that you’ve guessed it, I am putting it back in the closet. 🙂
“What is it?” It is hairy and dusty. I win.
You got me – it is dusty, but that was not the answer for which I was looking.
It took me a while, and initially I was going in a totally different direction, but then as I was thinking about what it could be, my eye fell on the object and I had a eureka moment: a stapler! It’s the back of a stapler.
Nicely done, Leonore. You are the first to guess correctly.
I’m thinking the back of a stapler. That’s because I’m in my office right now looking at a stapler.
You are thinking correctly, Jackie! I was looking at one the minute the idea came to me. 🙂
Belt buckle! I win! I win!! Woohoo!!
You win my love, Kim. Alas, you did not win the mystery photo. But my love is way better. So way more better.
It’s a hinge to….aaaugh I don’t know. Can I have partial credit?
You get credit for visiting and trying, Oma. I appreciate it. You’ll always be number one to me. (Just don’t tell the other number ones in my life.)
Hmm its all about perspective. I believe it is the back end of a stapler. Huh? Huh?
You are correct, Chris. Most excellent guess. Thank you for playing.
I don’t think this is as easy. I’m going to go with seat-belt receptacle.
Woo hoo! I stumped Steve!! Hmmm… maybe I should do a “Stump Steve Saturday”. Ha. Never. Too tough a challenge.
the space station!
Well…maybe you’d find one on the space station. 🙂 You so silly, Corkey.
I was GONNA say it’s a guy puffing out his cheeks, but then I suspected that wasn’t the photo you were referring to. The shiny, metally thing looks like a seat belt, but what I really want to know is who did that incredibly fine, detailed engraving of your name onto it? Great work there.
I’ve been practicing my engraving skills, Peg. Thank you for noticing. Though my engraving skills pale in comparison to your artistic creations with pictures.
Looks like a seat belt latch.

You were not alone in your guess, Maxi. Thanks for playing.
Looking at a 3 hole paper puncher from the long end.
Close! Alas, it is a stapler. Thanks for playing, Linda.
