Show and Tell: Objects in Photo Are Larger Than They Appear

September 7, 2008

This week: a prize for guessing the prize for guessing. Or, Show and Tell: Bridge, part 3.

At last week’s Show and Tell, I presented a vase that wonder woman Lori from Weebles Wobblog, All Thumbs Reviews, and Drama 2B Mama won as a prize for correctly guessing that the Show and Tell from the preceding week took place in Budapest. It turns out that Lori also has a fertility-related Budapest story, and she presented her own Show and Tell with a photo of the Chain Bridge from a very different perspective.

Here, again, is the vase that Lori won due to her knowledge and experience.

Vase

I asked people to guess the height of the vase. Guesses ranged from 8 inches to 12 inches. Thanks to everyone who guessed – but none of you were even close. Here is the true scale of the vase:


The actual height of the vase is 3.25 inches. So, this means that Wishing 4 One was the closest at 8 inches. Congrats! Her prize is in the works and will be presented at next week’s Show and Tell.

Today’s lesson: Appearances can be deceiving.

    Oooooh, that was so cool. I didn’t guess the height because I couldn’t even begin to imagine the size. Though I was picturing so much bigger. Like 16 inches or more.
