Plus the pestle and mortar does look quite 'conical'. Not only a good guess, but in the correct order. Well done Krepostnoi.A magnetic compass (which has a flat, round, black section), a pestle&mortar, and a VHS copy of "Leningrad Cowboys go America" (which has a photo, "framed" in a plastic cover). I think Krepostnoi wins this round! Step up and receive your virtual gold star!
I'm actually a little unnerved by that I suspect it's nothing more than the equivalent of the infinite monkeys typing Shakespeare, but still...Shady :
a flat(tish) round black object - an ashtray?
a conical figure - something like those angel Xmas tree decoration thingies.
A photo in a frame or a post card. Possibly an Xmas card.
Primus, a toy or model bus (single-decker long coach shape, pale);
In the secundum, a comb or flattened brush, blue;
Et tert, a pair of lightweight scissors.
And the mystery objects were :
A magnetic compass (which has a flat, round, black section), a pestle&mortar, and a VHS copy of "Leningrad Cowboys go America" (which has a photo, "framed" in a plastic cover). I think Krepostnoi wins this round! Step up and receive your virtual gold star!
Well see, that's how psychic we are - we can see what's just outside the boundaries of the photo and at different times! Are we good, or what?Only two responses this week:
When I see your name I see a landing with yachts on a river. I know It's probably wrong again but that's what I see.
Carpark. The number eight. Possibly Coventry.
Well, neither seems to get anywhere near, to my mind!
Remember the picture was not chosen by me but by a random process, so it may not reflect my interests or be what I would choose to put on my desktop. So the previous target, the big ground drill, although an interesting record of some construction work, would not have been my desktop choice.
But, as it happens, this week's picture would have been a likely choice - and here it is:

Sundial sited over Perranporth beach
So, no river, no yachts, no car park in sight, and it's definitely not Coventry! But I suppose one of the white sundial markers is number 8, but it's not in the centre of the photo or picked out in any other way.
So no winner, and not even a runner-up!
Oh, it will be lovely to visit Leningrad again for the first time. Is that first resolutely non-microscopic item orgonite? (Yeah, I know, I can see it and I still don't know what it is...)Only two entries this time.
Again, something flattish and round. A coaster?
Scissors or pliers.
Something to do with a dog
A plant or flower, pink ,maybe
ermm, did you change your mind about one of them? [no]
And the objects were :
Orgonite, a spool of solder and an old CPU heatsink/fan.
Krepostnoi can have a few points for "flattish and round" as the object is, indeed, flattish and round, and wins a no-expenses-included trip to the Institute for Brain Research at Leningrad State University (just as soon as we obtain a time machine).
*looks into scrying pool of strawberry squash* I'm going to say The Druids Nephew in first place, followed by Hadrian's Approach and Aachen. Many Clouds will refuse to leave the stalls, Wonderful Charm will get distracted at the half-way point by a particularly colourful hat (or a butterfly. The visions are cloudy) and On His Own will take an embarrassingly long poo live on camera at some point.Let's get the gang together again and have a day at the races..!
