I first encountered this kind of game in a photo sharing community and I thought it might be fun to have one here on a North American scale. The concept is very simple: people post a photo of a particular location and the others have to guess. The poster can give hints or not. The photo has to show something that can be recognized (i.e. no pictures of people/animals with no background, or extreme macro close-ups).
Where is this?
This is the First section of a popular mind puzzle first brought to the membership by member Quebec Gen.
General Rules of the "Where in North America is this?" Game
1) Anyone can play -- just follow along and test your mettle about places found in North America.
2) You'll need to be a registered member of this Forum if you want to contribute your own photographs and/or participate in the discussion for each place.
3) You will need to have the ownership or usage rights to any photo that you post on this forum, as per the terms & conditions of Federal copyright law. If you post a photo that you do not own the rights to, Forum Management reserves the right to remove it. As a matter of practical use, we would expect that you would be posting only those photos that you or a close family member have taken.
4) Every photo of a mystery place needs to be unique in some way -- And there should be "visual clues" in the photo to enable us to solve where the mystery location is...
