All but one of the portraits are against a black background. They look like planets.

I showed these pictures to my friend, starting from the bottom. He guessed that they were bearings. They look like photos of objects from outer space to me.

Unidentified frying objects

Since I'm not at work, I clicked on this. I was wondering: Is this going to be some form of misshapen human buttocks I'm not familiar with? Is it some sort of geological or marine formation, like frying pan shoals? Maybe some kind of alluvial deposit left behind by a glacier?

When I clicked, I was like "Oh planets, is this some kind of crater?"

Then it dawned on me, they're pictures of frying pan bottoms. Duh.

OK, Coruscant, Tatooine...

A quick check of the bottom of my cast-iron reveals yes, it looks like an aerial photograph of Mars.

(I love you, Lodge cast-iron pan, you make everything so easy and wonderful and bright)

That's no moon--it's a frying pan.

Are those photos filtered?

This close they always look like planets. But, nope, you're looking at frying pans.

Yeah, I was reading the internet a couple of years ago too.

My favorite old cast iron pan, but the inside, with some olive oil.

Here's the images in the "Devour" collection on Christopher Jonassen's web, which has more of his galleries.

Fabulous!

Which one's Europa, and which one's a frying pan?

There's also the mystery of Callisto.

Which one's the moon landing sound stage?

Beauty is where you find it... plus, what a wonderful rationale not to do dishes! I‘m not lazy, I‘m an artist!

What? Hasn't everyone taken pictures of the bottom of a skillet? Here's mine: One, Two [self-links]

ALL THESE PANS ARE YOURS EXCEPT CIRCULON ATTEMPT NO FRYING THERE

They look like planets or moons.
I love things like this - the beauty of metal, of rust, of man-made objects scarred by use, of ripped posters and the underside of bridges.
