Interesting geometry and lighting. Looks like a still-not-green marsh grass.

This shot seems to have intrigued all of us. I enjoy going to flea markets and this one looks very interesting.

I loved to play that game as a child. Brings back lots of memories! That said, I sure hope it is what I think it is!
