It's amazing how gorgeous ordinary objects can be when photographed just so.

All you have to do is look over the entries in this month's "What's That?" contest to see that in the hands of skilled photographers, even a speck of dust can be a thing of beauty.

The deadline draws near for the January contest, in which we asked you to take unusual shots of familiar items (or not so familiar) in such a way that most observers would scratch their heads.

This was a challenge; not only does your photo have to be taken this month, but the style of photography may be a first for many of you.

We have posted all eligible photos in four full-screen galleries here:

Gallery 1 | Gallery 2 | Gallery 3 | Gallery 4

We had to eliminate 7 photos because they weren't taken this month, and two others because they were from the same photographer (but as soon as he removes the contest tags from one we'll add the remaining photo to our full-screen galleries).

Meanwhile, if you haven't entered yet, get moving: As I said earlier, the photo must be shot this month. So your photo must be taken and uploaded to Flickr by midnight Sunday, Jan. 31.

If you want to jump in, all the details about the contest as well as instructions on how to enter are right here.

Life and wildlife in Madagascar
For years before I started college, I knew I wanted to spend a semester studying abroad, but I wasn't sure where. By my junior year at Brandeis, I made up my mind to travel somewhere off the beaten path, and, of course, Madagascar is pretty far off the beaten path for someone like me....

Photography apps for your phone
Thinking of ditching your separate camera and moving to just using your phone for all your photos? What apps should you go for? Instagram made headlines recently after being bought by Facebook for $1 billion. What does it include, and what else is out there?...
