Can you correctly/creatively name the thingamajig in this photo?

Hello pretty people!

So maybe this here “challenge” will be ridiculously easy for you all, or maybe it will take years for the correct answer to be guessed…

…but the simple fact is that I have just graded 300 hunks of paper (one essay test and one term paper from each of my 150 students) over the course of seven long days, and now everything is a bit hazy and swirly…

…so, dagnabbit, I demand now to reward myself for all that focus by finally finding an excuse to use a photo I took a few months back in Boston which I think is pretty.

There’s no story that goes with this photo… just a challenge.  And the challenge is this: What is this photo of?

First Prize goes to the first correct respondent, and First Prize Part Two goes to the most creative (yet student-appropriate) interpretation!

Take it away, pumpkins.
