You are correct Cap. The game rules require that you now post a photo for the other players to try and identify.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

That one was a gimme.... Spent several years on Tybee Island, and passed the lighthouse a lot on weekend trips.

This one is pretty generic. If you get to the right archipelago, thats close enough. Take a close look at the boat... Commonest means of local transport and modeled after local one-log canoes. Scanned from the original KodaChrome.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Nice picture - are they transport roofing material in that pirogue? Are all the islands in the archipelago as flat as those seen in the background?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Yeah.... Load of split palm fronds for thatch. Transported from another island about 10km away as it has the best material for the job according to the "old boys" But you need to cut and split them during the right phase of the moon or your roof will always leak. Lots and lots of rain here.... while the maximum elevation in the area is about 150 meters, most of the larger islands are quite hilly.

Here is a shot of the main drag in the "big-city".... Seat of local government and home to about 1/3 of the areas population. One island west from the original photo.



You can find these guys hanging around as well..




Where was I ???
