Game: part 1

And here it is a bit bigger, for those of you that want to check out details.

I thought we might play a little game with this project. The game is called 'What noun links these pictures?' It works like this: I'll post one illustration from this series per week, on Saturday. Whoever correctly guesses the unifying theme and posts their guess in comments first wins. Yes/no questions are allowed. Also, I'm not above bribery. I will design a new free desktop wallpaper for whoever guesses it first. I'll also happily hand out smaller prizes for guesses I think are really really close, or just extra amusing. :)

hints to start:

- There will be twelve illustrations when I'm done.

- The correct answer is less than twelve characters long.
