Friday Mystery Place – vol 11

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?

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!!
