So we’re going to try something a little different. This will be a variation on the game “Where’s Waldo”, except you have to guess where I was last Saturday, based on the photos below. And you have to find me in at least one photo. We’ll use my Twitter handle and call it “Where’s EdRo?”. All of these photos were made in the same general area. To play fair, you aren’t allowed to scroll down too far before you guess. Forensic investigation of EXIF data is possible, but also against the rules. There’s no prize, but if enough people demand it, I can see about having something for the next time we play.
The point of the game is to remind you that you need to look around and find the non-obvious photos wherever you are. Go ahead and get the “trophy shots” (photos that everyone takes at a popular spot), but don’t forget to share your unique vision, perspective, and outlook with others.
Want to play? Here goes…
Clue #2: Nice light on an Ibis.
Clue #3: Flowers, leaves, sky.
Have you guessed where I was yet? If not, here’s some more clues:
Clue #4: Blue wall, red windows.
Clue #5: River landing and flowers.
Do you have it yet? If not, here’s a couple more.
One last clue:
If you haven’t guessed yet, then go to this set of mine on Flickr for additional clues. I’ve added a total of 21 photos there. Some are obvious and some are not. Hopefully they all let you see this place through my eyes.
Thanks for playing my little game. Now, go out there and look past the obvious shots.
