Life is an experiment, use the right tools and elements, and you'll do fine.

Bugger because the next photo looks like the church when Columbus went before he sailed in 1492, one of the Canary Islands, La Gomera

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I can't claim to have recognized that, but the combination of Portuguese and O'Neills pub in proximity to water certainly helped me narrow down the location on Google Earth. I'll see if I can get an interesting next picture prepared should I have guessed it correctly.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Here's a picture of Cascais if found online. Get your photo ready, just in case you're correct.

To all out there:
Make sure you visit that place if you are in the vicinity...
It is such a georgeus place and only 20 min away from lissabon...
No wonder why all the skippers which have to anbandon a race take all the efforts to get their boats repaired in this marvelous town... I was very curious until i went to that place...

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

It looks like a marvelous place and perhaps one day I'll get to go to Cascais (but not for repairs, I hope).

Here's the next photo:

That looks like a very northern European, perhaps Hanseatic, city to me. Hamburg, Bremen?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Aye, it is northern European and Hanseatic as well. The picture was taken from a bridge looking at the old centre of town. Seafaring ships were built here and the port is open to all but the biggest vessels these days.

Since my "difficult" picture threatens to last only minutes, I'll have to ask you to answer with a location that doesn't contain one or more instances of the word "or"

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Hmmm, I am going to have to go with Bremen after all!

Was the picture taken from the Wilhelm-Kaisen (?) Bridge, looking north?
