For the 60th Where In Ottawa, I was going to be sneaky: I was going to post a photo that I had shot somewhere around 1986, a place that doesn't exist anymore, and still ask you to locate where it was.
Then I thought that maybe a large number of you may not have been born 30 years ago or were too young to know the location. You would have to rely totally on the clues in the coming days.
Maybe I'll still do that sometime in the new year.
For now, I'm content to show you a photo that I shot last night.
Never played my photo challenge before? Here are the rules:
Below, you will see a photo that I shot somewhere in Ottawa. Your job is to
simply identify the location and leave your guess in the Comments section of this blog post.
Leave your guess in this post only. Do not try to contact me through Twitter or through Facebook, or even by e-mail, as I need all answers to be transparent to all players, and not everybody has access to me through other social media. This blog post is the one place where everyone can play along.
Plus, the comments are time-stamped, so everyone can see when an answer is submitted.
If you try to guess by any other means, whether you're right or wrong, I won't respond to that guess and you can't win.
For every day that the challenge isn't solved, I'll leave a clue in the top-left corner of my blog. Above the This is Me section.
The first person to correctly identify the location wins the challenge. You can guess as many times as you like. Only bragging rights are claimed
by the winner: there is no actual prize...
This just in: the wonderful folks at loveOttawa (Dwayne Brown and Anita Ruivo) have offered a loveOttawa t-shirt to the winner. Just one more reason to love this city.
Ready for this month's photo? Here we go...
Think you know Ottawa? Prove it!
And good luck.
