They must have big dogs there. Those two kennels are huge.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Well - since I responded to the "open picture" state of the thread first, here goes...

I spent some time working outside of Antibes and thought I'd post a picture of Port Vauban, but every picture I have and those I found on the web are instantly identifiable and not even a bit of a challenge, unlike this picture:

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Looks like we're on a river or a very sheltered harbour.. are we in France or was that some purposeful misdirection?????

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I just realized that the picture is fuzzy, I'll look for a better one as a hint.

We are not in France, not even in the EU but you've got the hemisphere correct.

Here's a Google Maps excerpt from far above:

Sorry can you be a bit more clear about this? This means it is possible that you have not been there or that we can post pictures that are not ours but have to have been at the place?

Regards

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Paulo.. I think we all agreed that it need not be your own pic, nor that you need to have been there yourself in the interests of keeping this going.. It need be a sailing/boating related place, that's about it.

As to the current target.. Northern Hemisphere, not EU..... North America?

Annapolis, USA


I haven't been there, but if I had it should look like this.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I think Zanshin is being careful with his choice of words - he say it's not in the EU rather than saying not in Europe. I'm thinking either Scandinavia or one of the non EU counties around the Med, like Turkey or Croatia.

Zanshin, are you trying to mislead us?
