Here comes a fifth mystery slide post of this year….
This week’s entry comes from the boxes of slides that I received from my father-in-law. For full disclosure…I’m not 100% sure where the mystery location is, but I think that I know it… Based on the slide, I think the image was captured in the early 1960s.
There’s a nice view with a bay not too far away…
It appears to me that there are some old fortifications in this image. Where do you think this might be?
Here comes a fourth mystery slide post of this year….
This week is another one from my travels, which narrows the location options a bit. The location features some unusual geology, which, to my knowledge, is available only at a couple of places on earth.
Here’s a view across this magnificent geology….
Those stones are unusual and appear to rise from the depths of the earth.
Where is this location, and what else can you tell me about it?
Now that the location has been uncovered… Felix Mendelssohn wrote a lovely overture inspired by his visit to Fingal’s Cave on Staffa: The Hebrides.
With the new year, I thought it might be interesting to revive something that I did for a while over the past year: the Mystery Slide.
As my father-in-law generously gave me a sizable slide collection from his travels, and even before, I will continue the project of scanning all of them this year. So, you can expect more of these in the future!
Without further ado, here’s the first one for this year…
This one took me a bit to figure out, even with the advantage of having some idea where my father-in-law traveled.
Where is this location and do you know the event depicted here?
Welcome to the 53rd round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge! Together we have crossed a milestone in completing our first year’s worth of Tuesday Photo Challenges! A heartfelt thank you to all of you who have contributed, read, commented and kept this series going across the first 52 weeks! Let’s see what the 2nd year brings us!
With a theme like Mystery, I intentionally left the door wide open for your creative horses to gallop through and blaze new trails! You found mystery and wonder in the world around us, the sky above and even the symbols that we summon to represent us. You have once again managed to surprise and amaze me! Thank you!!
Thinking of the theme Mystery, this was one image that also came to my mind…
This image is from my series of surreal images, each of which has a touch of mystery within it. In this image, we might wonder what is drawing the woman into the sky, or what lies behind this sky? Why would she resist escape from this dismal bathroom?
The following were this week’s participants in the challenge with links to their posts:
