Looks like some kind of rubber-tile floor matting for a playground. It would be helpful if you took photos in areas that had better satellite coverage 😉

It’s the new Friedl sensor! Watch out for those dust specks, though.

LEDs on a huge advertising billboard? But I prefer Greg’s thought!

Shot 1m away with a wide angle lens… but don’t I see hairs/dust on it, indicating a small object. Unless those are cracks…. this one’s just too hard.

I’m going to say this is some kind of rubber surface that is intended to get dirty or scuffed, such as the bottom of a shoe or rubber foot.

I’ve revealed the answer on another post. I’m quite pleased that no one got it 🙂

Dang it, I haven’t checked your blog for awhile, I could have gotten this one, just saw a documentary about this bridge a couple weeks ago…
