Solve This Puzzle: What Is This Mystery Object? by 


Yes, it’s a wall mural, but where on earth (literally) did I shoot it? Put on your thinking caps, but most of all, have fun! You can have as many guesses as you want.

Your time starts … NOW!

Spoiler alert: Do not read any further unless you want to see the answer revealed.

Solved by Linda Bianic, the Canada-based Red Bubbler who made a clean sweep of the last challenge as well. She correctly identified it as a wall in Montreal after US-based Lynn Janine Abbott correctly worked out that the image was shot in Canada. This was actually taken in the Gay Village of Montreal, just before I caught a flight to Quebec City in 2005.

I do not crop, enhance or post-edit my images in any way. Shot on film using a Canon EOS 3000.

    lol… no Ellis I think you’ve got it… :) My guess was going to be just be Australia (I figured “technically” that could be right…lol)… but, Europe is even better!!
