You Capture: Shapes ***edited***

My thought process as I tried to decide how to approach this week's
You Capture challenge looked a lot like this...
Geometric shapes
Organic shapes
The shape of my life
the shape of my marriage
the shape of my finances
the shape that I'm in
the shape that I want to be

 Lots of deep thoughts, but no pictures to go along with them.
I have to admit that this particular challenge was not my favorite.  
I think I took some of the most boring pictures that I've ever taken in my entire life!
But, I tried to spice them up a bit using the heat map editing tool. 
At least they're colorful.

Can you guess what they are?
Yeah... I know... the last one is a bit too easy, 
but go ahead and try to figure out the others. :)

*** Here are the originals.***
Thanks for guessing, but you were all sooooo wrong!  :)

 I wasn't kidding when I said that they were the most boring pictures I've ever taken. 

I'm curious to see what kind of shapes everyone else captured.
Check it out here.

the first one looks like the cutting part on a can opener....very clever.

Is the first one the bottom of a glass soda bottle?

Laura said...

if the first one is the can opener blade, I think the second one is the handle, and the third one a can?

Melissa said...

Very clever take on this the colors.

I had the same thought process...this week was tough...

The shapes stumped me, but I love the colors.

Hmmm, except for the last one, I can't guess about the shapes. This was a tough theme wasn't it? So I'm your newest follower. We're a military family also! Nice to meet you.

I like the edits. They are very colorful - kind of modern arty.

Kim said...

Wow I love what you have done with this weeks topic, very cool. I love how you have made them so colourful.
I think the second one looks like a hotdog on a plate, hahaha I am prob totally wrong.

Neat shot of the keyboard.

Lena said...

Fun! Love the colors! And I only got 1 out of 4 right lol

Jay said...

I don't think your pictures are at all boring - I think they're great!! You did a wonderful job spicing them up!

I got them all wrong, by the way, except the keyboard. The first I guessed was the bottom of a peppermill, the second the blade of a food mixer... and after considerable thought, I came up with a rivet on a pair of jeans for number three! LOL!
