It was fun Aiyana! I had to bite my tongue a bit. :)
OOPS! just read your post about reflective tape.
One of my top 20 this week.
@LC, see what happens when you go away? LOL......my son in-law and one of his son's is at a father and son's tonight. I wonder if you were at the same one?? I'm glad that you had fin with my entry. I sure did enjoy all the great guesses on it. Thanks again and I hope you did great with yours!!
Plastic fencing sold at hardware stores.

Thanks for all the guesses, comments and votes!!
Oops, I gave it away, lol!! Good job GinaB!!! It is reflective tape on a sign that says Road Closed.
Is it reflective tape?
I don't know if we're voting on this week's topic for photographing excellence or mystery. If photographing, I would like to see some kind of focal point. The value contrast between the very light whatever-they-are and the dark is nice. For the mystery, you get my three votes.
Well, slr, if you had of reflected a bit longer, you may have gotten it. With that being said, it is not a form of duct tape. And it is not a white chain link fence. Need to think of something that is not used in a home. At least I have never seen it in a home before.....hmmmmmmmmm
Let me reflect on this a bit. I just don't know - what is it? If its tape then I'm supposing that the white chain link fence like stuff are filaments to make it stronger or something. Its not some form of duct (or duck) tape is it?
When I took the picture of this mystery item, the lines were off on it. I had nothing to do with that, lol. With it being shot at an angle, it didn't come out right. When I took this, I actually used my macro lens. This item, is found outside. I have never seen it in a home. And it has a specific purpose. You do not wear it, sit on it, drive on it. It is a type of tape as LC figured out. It is also not the color that i have it. I put a high contrast on it.
Well you've had us guessing. As for the image, the top and bottom lines are off just a bit. I'd like to see this shot at an angle with some twist added in, This would add perspective, a focal plane and some movement for the viewer instead of just shooting a flat image straight on. You have great texture here and could have done much more with it, IMO.
My last round - Voting on mystery value.
Looks like upholstery fabric to me. Perhaps your favorite couch or chair cushion?
a denim iron on patch????
Simple and effective. cool.
lc, tape is very very close, but you would not think of this as such.
does this mean that I win??? tape is my final answer...lock it in!
@gfa, nope. @tomel nope. @lc, yes @ irishkell nope
How about a sun screen / privacy screen like the ones used on dog kennels. They also make tarps out of a similiar material.
It still looks like some type of textile and the outdoors hint makes me want to say patio furniture cushion, but that would be a fabric so that can't be it. I'll keep at it....
ahhhh, is it then sticky like tape??? if I hurry, I might beat slr to figuring out this one???
Screen on a door or window? It looks like something or someone is looking out at us! Can't wait to find out what it is.
no it isn't lc1
is the other side slick???
nope not a filter element. no the reverse side does not look the same. A clue, this is something that you would find outside.
submitter, does the reverse side look the same as this side???
Boy, not any type of fabric you say....that eliminates a lot of things. My next guess was going to be a throw pillow but it can't be that. Sure looks like some sort of textile but I'll take you at your word that it's not. I'm stumped.
nope, nope, nope, nope, nope......good guesses though!!
