Re: Picture Identification Game

I don't want to speak for him, But I think Zanshin is focused on getting off the dock and into warmer waters, at the moment. Speaking for myself. I don't think it matters if you took the photo, or were there yourself. The fun for me is in solving the puzzle.

Although, I've been to Old Saybrook many times, I took that last photo off the internet. Many of my photos were lost with my old phone, or on film. I've about exhausted recent photos.

So if you got em, post em. ;-)

I hear ya on that. Most of my pics are 35mm prints and negatives but have many digital now as well.

Alrighty, this does conform to my "been there" suggestion. It also is a 2-fer. both lighthouses are no longer or were ever a navigational aid. I could hang one or two lanterns for either of these. The conch goes to the lighthouse's names with previous and current location.

Both iconic examples of their type.

Re: Picture Identification Game

My worthless opinion.

I think the photos should NOT be pulled off the www
I think they should be taken by the poster
I think they should contain a recognizable feature
I think they should be marine settings... not villages for example

You may be able to recognize a location not because you've been there, but because you've seen it in other photos or video/movies... or you're just a good detective

pay attention... someone's life depends on it

IMHO More restrictive rules, will just result in even fewer participants.

OK I will make some rules:

Must be water where boats can/do go.

You do not have to have taken the photo.

YES it can be taken off the internet

If not correct answer after a few days give a hint.

Does not have to be obvious, but needs to be solvable 😁

If someone does not wish yo post a photo do not try to solve a question.

Vary things around a bit

Have fun



How's that sound?

Re: Picture Identification Game

Whatever... I just like to see the pics members have taken... Guessing a location is less interesting to me. Perhaps we need a thread... Post a pic of a fav location you've taken cruising.

Let's play it like the way I have suggested for a while

Otherwise it precludes people who haven't been far yet

Thanks

Re: Picture Identification Game

Oops! Didn't mean to stir things up. I am ok with whatever as clearly have been able to solve some w/o having been there. I have only chosen those i personally have been to, but did take at least one or two images off internet as has been discussed only had 35mm versions. We sailed for 10 years through basically the 80's so clearly no digital. Returned to sailing just 3 years ago and thus digital but also not a lot of time under our keel yet! Have included places visited by our land yacht in the interim years but still boat/maritime related. I will continue to post places been to but regardless would love a poster to include some perspective once solved. I love hearing the history and particulars of a place, and clearly love lighthouses!

Meanwhile....there are two out there in play!

Re: Picture Identification Game

I believe the first pic is of the Drum Point Lighthouse, first lit in 1883, relocated to the Calvert Marine Museum in Solomons, MD in 1975.

The second is the Stingray Point Lighthouse at Stingray Point Yacht Club in Deltaville, Va. It was originally built in 1853 at Stingray point and guarded the shoal at the confluence of the Rappahannock and Piankatank Rivers, and was relocated to (or, more accurately, replicated to) its currently location when the original light was demolished in 1975.
