This week’s photo looks like either a device of torture … or something involved with athletics. What in the world is it and where? We’ll forward some City Paper swag to the 5th person who correctly answers the questions and identifies this week’s mystery photo. To enter (one entry per person), send your guess, name and hometown in an email to: mystery@charlestoncitypaper.com.

LAST WEEK’S MYSTERY, “White and blue,” showed a new parking garage at Portside Ferry Wharf in Mount Pleasant as viewed from the Ravenel Bridge. (Photo by Ruta Smith.). Hats off to Carl Blum for being the seventh correct guess and winning this week’s swag. (Send us your address, Carl, so we can send the swag.)

Every Monday, the City Paper offers a mystery photo taken somewhere in the Lowcountry. We encourage you to guess — and make sure to share your name and the town in which you live. We’ll uncover the mystery the following week and, every now and then, give a prize.

BONUS: If you want to submit a mystery photo taken by you for us to share, send it to our mystery email address. Make sure to put “Submission” in the subject line.

PAST MYSTERIES: While the guessing time on these mysteries is over, you might like seeing some old mystery photos that readers have puzzled over. Enjoy!
