I took this photo a few years ago in a 17/18th century graveyard located in Lancaster, Massachusetts.

Though it could get a few laughs and "huhs" on here.

Every few guesses or hours or days, whatever I feel like, I will post a less blurry version until it is clear, or someone can guess what it is.

Hint: its natural

It's somebody's arm. They're wearing a pale grey Tshirt.

but alas, its not.

Perhaps the 'pale gray shirt' is a headstone?

That would make the 'arm' some sort of grave decoration?

Am I getting warmer?

I've been in that graveyard alot, and its just a boring typical graveyard you see all over western Massachusetts. No ghosts reported, and I hung out there for a long time with a friend of mine. We offered the dead a hit from our "graveyard rolled device, sans tobacco hint hint", but no one took us up on the sweet deal.

Love the ghost pic, Lau :D

"sans tobacco"? so it's not a close-up of part of a tobacco plant then?

If you rotate it 90* to the left, it kind of looks like a gravel lane way or something?

Is it a mouse tail?

Hmm.

Nah, they've lived there more than a year and never once said a word to me even when we've walked out the house together in the morning and I've said 'Good morning' never even replied! We get to hear all their arguments however as our place is a semi and they yell at each other so much you can actual follow the argument, a while ago they were going to take a family holiday and it all kicked off 'cause he suggested the wife drove the family car down through France with the kids and he'd meet them there on his motorcycle. The only one we never hear is the dog!

Feb 20, 2006, 11:49 AM
are you taking the photo from quite a bit above? i.e. a hot air balloon?

i can only see one thing presently which was touched on before, however i dont know what the limits are of what i'm allowed to say! :D

Clix Pix
Feb 20, 2006, 12:15 PM
Some sort of pump handle? At first I had thought it were one of those flowers that has the big thingy sticking out of the center but realized that it couldn't be because of the color and because you said the item is hard to the touch.

My other guess is....an "anatomically correct" piece of statuary either on someone's gravesite or as part of the graveyard's overall decor. Problem with that is that the orientation the way you initially presented it is probably not right for such an image.

ETA: Oh, I know! A scarecrow! ? The part we see in the photo is a stick or some other object meant to be an "arm," and it is sticking out of a t-shirt sleeve. Yes?? <Answering my own question after further study: no. Scratch that idea!>

Back to study this thing again....

Um.... how's about a finger? Is it a finger? Pointing at something?

russed
Feb 20, 2006, 12:22 PM
are there any more clues coming our way?

and also i feel the need to ask something that hasnt already been asked....whats that point in this? though i must say its quite fun! :D

Alright time to "come clean". Here is the unblurred original photograph:
