I think it's a micrograph of a metal object, perhaps the blade of a serrated knife.

Hoic.. I have not looked back onto this thread, nor have I been online lately.. Yup you were sure right [;)]

The first thing I noticed is that it appears to unfold, like a fan, except that the rotation centers don't seem to line up.  Also, there seems to be a wide depth of focus, implying that the photo was taken from some distance away, which in turn implies that it's big.  The blue background looks like it's the sky.  I can't make out any fabrication marks either, which also suggests that it's big.  My best guess is that it's an abstract work of art.  I just hope MonikaS is still around to tell us.
...And its claws are as big as cups, and for some reason it's got a tremendous fear of stamps! And Mrs Doyle was telling me it's got magnets on its tail, so if you're made out of metal it can attach itself to you! And instead of a mouth it's got four arses!

Is it some sort of fan or water wheel! It looks like a a few huge spoked wheels with hog wire on it!

I am counting three individual wheels covered with wire but they seem to be turning at different paces or separately from each other possibly different rates of speed...?

The Roof of the new Waterloo station in London or Kings Cross?

Both have been built for the Eurostar to go through the Channel Tunnel to France.
Rosalind Franklin was my first cousin and one my life's main regrets is that I never met this brilliant and beautiful lady.
She discovered the Single DNA Helix in 1953, then it was taken by Wilkins without her knowledge or agreeement.

<g> Nope I didn't fell of the spiral staircase...
The staircase is in an industrial area of Hamburg, Germany, it was a crystal clear spring morning, the light was phantastic. So I took the opportunity and photographed it from below into the sky. The reddish bit is the wall. The pic is neither cropped nor altered. I just reduced the size to make it fit better into the forum post.

Sorry 'bout the late answer, but <4letter word>work</4letter word> and life as such forced me to stay away from the forum. <sigh>
