Friday Mystery Place – vol 16

Cheesy location

Last week’s entry was on the easy side, as the location was mentioned pretty quickly, which may have had something to do with the fact that it was the closing scene in the recent Star Wars movie (episode VII?), where Luke Skywalker was given back his light sabre.

Let’s see how this week challenges everyone…

Cheese Anyone?

Where are we?  This one shouldn’t be too difficult…

Technical Details

This image was captured with a Canon EOS 5D Mk III using an EF 24-105mm f/4L lens.  Exposure settings were 1/50 second at f/10 and 1600 ISO.

Not of this planet?

After last week’s rather tricky post for this category, which long-time readers of my blog, could have recognized as being photographed outside the Botanical Garden of the Technical University in Delft, the Netherlands, something a little easier upon my return from quick travels.

Otherworldly Mystery

As a hint, if needed, this location was used recently in a big budget film; the latter gave me the idea to use this image, as I saw it during my flight from Rome to Boston.

Have fun!

Where’s the bird?

As I’m travelling at the time of this publication, I’m taking a bit of an unfair shortcut…  There will be some travel photos, but for right now, I’m sharing a photo from one of my travels last year.  If you can correctly identify where I captured this image, more kudos to you.

Bird of Paradise

I will give you a hint in that the answer can be found in one of my earlier posts…

Be careful crossing the street!

Yes, folks, it’s that time of the week again.  Last week’s edition of Friday Mystery Place – vol 12 was a little bit tricky, although it was figured out by an intrepid reader: Boston’s very own Fenway Park baseball stadium, which is a historic location, as it is the oldest major league baseball stadium that is still in operation.

That’s a nice tower with a classic vane!

This week is a bit tricky, but I think there are plenty of clues in this image…

Where are we in this image?  I’m curious to find out, if someone can give me the precise street location.

Have fun!

Looks like a pretty good seat

Since I am in a pretty generous mood today, this week’s mystery place is pretty easy… Of course, you might be thinking ‘Famous last words’.

Where was I?

Where is this seat located?  It will be even more impressive, if you can prove that you have sat in this seat…

Good luck and start your guesses!

Late for lunch!

Dear Reader, last week’s challenge was a bit devilish, but clearly not hard enough, as several of you figured it out; you are impressive!  This week’s location should not be too hard to guess…

Which lovely place is this?

This location was one that I almost overlooked in my travels, as I had not put it on the itinerary.  As my wife and I were driving to our next stop on our travels, and in truth we were looking for some spot to eat some lunch, I caught this beauty out of the corner of my eye, as it was a bit obscured by foliage.

We figured out where we could find access to the location and had a fun time exploring it; lunch was served late, and delicious!

Where are we?
