What am I?

Okay, so I didn't challenge anyone with yesterday's post, but being tired from another 400km of driving today, I'll post another “What am I?” quiz today, of a photo I took this afternoon.

I expect this one will be a tad more formidable, but as is often the case, the image metadata provides valuable clues to the answer.

Hmmm ok… You definitely got a more challenging thing going on with this one. Is it the leaves of a bamboo fan tightly closed up?
The hint on the metadata goes right over my non-photo literate head of course (and is sadly denting to the ego. But we can’t all be whizz kids)

The previous pic was I guess a suspension joint for cable holding up the road where it is attached to the catenary on some nice bridge you drove across? Hope that is a better guess 🙂
Hope you are catching up from being whacked from the drive…

Must be a product of the Asakura Towel Museum. Telling from the coordinates ….

OK – not a fan. Is it noodles being made?
It’s time for desperate guesses now 🙁

You are definately making up for the bridge suspension image. 🙂 After some digging around, I would have to say that it is a display at the Towel museum in ASAKURA. Appears to be thread in a loom. This one is a brain bender

I am going with the back of a Violin or Guitar.
