Artist's Description

Put on your thinking caps, but most of all, have fun! You can have as many guesses as you want.

FIRST QUESTION: Where was this shot?

SECOND QUESTION: Which name is common to Jules Verne’s “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea” and a successful Disney-Pixar animated film?

THIRD QUESTION (worth double points because it’s very difficult): When was the only recorded use of deep-sea diving helmets (like the ones in this image) by a land-based army?!!!

Spoiler alert: do not read any further unless you want to read the answers.

First part solved by Canadian Red Bubbler Linda Bianic who correctly guessed that this was a mural at Sydney’s Luna Park. I’m not sure if this mural was painted by Luna Park’s former resident artist, Arthur Barton, or if it dates from the refurbishment-era art by Martin Sharp, Peter Kingston and Richard Liney.

Second part also solved by Linda Bianic, who correctly deduced that the name was Nemo, as in Captain Nemo and the film “Finding Nemo”.

Third part also solved, in an unprecedented clean sweep by Linda Bianic, who gets double points for answering that the deep-sea diving helmets were issued to British troops in World War I, to combat mustard gas and possibly other attack gas methods.

I do not crop, enhance or post-edit my images in any way. Shot with a Pentax K100D, using a Sigma 18-125mm lens. F8, 1/250 sec, ISO 200, focal length 38mm
