Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Those are some nice pictures and I'm sure that there are sufficient clues in there for someone who hasn't been there to identify th esource. The "Alpha and Omega" is the initial giveaway, then the writing to the left and right looks like it might also be Greek, but the island vegatation certainly isn't Grecian. White tourist, black cleric. Satellite dish pointing low to the horizon, volcanic hills and lush green growths. Inside, the symbolism of the two differing Sacred Hearts should mean something more than it does to me.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

this particular cathedral has a rather dark history.

Tores Strait Islands, Far north Australia? The square rock bit is not a swimming pool but a tidal fish trap.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

good thought but the square rock bit is the remains of an old wharf, constructed by locals in the 1870s. think farther east than torres straits.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

The church is St. Michel Cathedral at Rikitea in the Gambier Islands. It was reportedly built using forced labor and had fallen into disrepair, but looks like it was restored recently.

BTW, the Gambier Islands are quite a way east of the Torres Straits.

But closer going east than west almost to Pitcairn and over half way to South America. Well done.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

fallard has it. the church has been beautifully restored recently. by coincidence, I was there for Easter Sunday and attended the service. it was quite a happening! The Reverend Honore Laval is reported to have caused the deaths of over 5000 locals during his reign in the late 1800s.
