Friday Mystery Place – vol 9

Straight lines abound!

As I’m in the middle of reorganizing all my image storage onto a pair of Drobo arrays, this week’s mystery place (this wasn’t a slide), is a day later than usual.  Hopefully, the suspense did not cause you any undue stress, so here’s this week’s puzzler…

Where are we?

This is a rather interesting looking building that is of a very particular architectural style.  If there are any among my readers who are architects, they will recognize the architecture, and, likely, name the architect.

  • Where is this building and what is its function?
  • Who is the (rather famous) architect?

Good luck!!

And now for something different

Bend your eyeball a little…

Sorry folks, none of our regularly scheduled programming, as I’m feeling a little capricious today and this image from a couple of years ago caught my eye…

A pleasing palette

Yes, it’s a bit of an eyeball-bender…

So, Dear Reader, what do you make of this image?  What is it, and have you ever taken a photo of this ilk?

Friday Mystery Slide – vol 8

Pigeons are everywhere…

As it happened, I came across some of my old slides last night after I had a short guitar practice (not been feeling that great this week, which cut into my practice time); these were from the late 1980’s and there are some interesting ones, as some came from a business trip.

Where are these folks?

I am confident that many among you can identify the country, where I captured this image, but how many among you can identify the city?

Good luck with your investigation!!

Friday Mystery Slide – vol 7

What kind of boat is this?

As it has been a pretty busy week, today’s slide will not be a slide, but rather an iPhone image from last year.  I will get time this weekend to plan out next week’s mystery with more detail.

Water everywhere!

I am confident that many among you can identify the country, where I captured this image, but how many among you can identify the city (not easy, but I think the boat does provide a hint about the area of the country…)

Good luck with your investigation!!

Friday Mystery Slide – vol 6

Put someone on a pedestal

A bit later in the day, as I’m in catch up mode from a week of travel in my first week at a new company, but here it is…

Who Is It?

This slide image is one that I took back in 1987 with my trusty Olympus OM-1, which I still own, and it is still functional!

Your questions for today:

  • Who is the person in the statue
  • Where is the statue (the easy part 🙂 )
  • Can you share something interesting about this person?

Hope you enjoy it!!

Friday Mystery Slide – vol 5

Pointing skyward?

After last week’s pretty straightforward slide, it is time for another pretty simple one.  I’m confident that someone will get this one!

Where am I?

Where is this statue?  What can you tell me about this statue?

Like I said…pretty straightforward in this day and age.  My challenge to you is to not use Google (or Bing, etc.), so we can find out who might have this in their memory banks!

Hope you enjoy!
