Photo Challenge – Week 13

On week 13 of the guessing photo challenge, this B&W photo that I’ve selected could be anywhere in the world…

…but can you guess where?

My photo challenge isn’t onerous and doesn’t involve too many rules. If you would like to participate in this guessing fun challenge, then all you need to do is:

  • post one of your favourite photos each week for as long as you like
  • your photo can be from any time, any place, and of anything, so start delving through your old or new chest of memories
  • post a photo without any explanation or hints
  • ask your readers where the photo was taken
  • make the challenge as easy or as hard as you wish and nominate someone each Sunday.

Post whatever and wherever you wish, although please link back to me so that I know you accepted my #photochallenge. If you don’t have time, or not really interested in this little challenge, don’t stress. Why not pass this challenge along to someone that you know has the time to join in?

It’s pretty challenging choosing a photo from my Image Earth Travel or Nilla’s Photography sites. The challenge is also not to add words or give hints about where you took the photo. This black and white photo is authentic as I shoot in black and white. When using my DSLR camera, I set this to black and white. Or, if I have a 35mm film camera with me, I use Ilford’s black and white film – ISO400 for low light or ISO125 for daylight.

Where did I take this photo?

So, for today, I nominate Fairy Queen from The Prodigy of Ideas for week 13 of my guessing photo challenge. Check out this intriguing blog site, which shares short stories of minority groups fighting for our planet but also life in general stories.

Leave a comment below and let me know if you can guess where I took this photo, but no hints this time.

    Could be Cuba, but there seems to be an Underground… Hmmm.
    The trio is Jazz. Definitely. And the banknote is a one-dollar note.

      No, not Cuba although the faces look a little Caribbean. The band was playing an eclectic mix of jazz and bluegrass, but excellent. I often feel sorry when buskers play their hearts out and no one pauses for even a minute to stop and listen. Everyone is so in a hurry. I love listening to buskers in whichever country I’m in…

        Had to look up busker… Is that Aussie? I try to give something as much as I can. They’re talented people who live on their music. (And so many people take a video without giving a cent…) 🎶

        I’m educating you but don’t think Australians can lay claim to that word – street performers?
        Yes, I always give and especially when I take their photo.

        Thanks for the education.
        And yes, if one takes pictures, or a video, one has to give. That was your stay in NY when we nearly missed each other wasn’t it?

        Exactly. Yes, this photo is from 2011.
        Shame we missed each other. 🙁

        It’s all right. There will be other times.

    Very good. Could be “Nar-leens”, Luu-zee-anna? 😉 (The banjo)
    Or just Praga. LOL.

      Ha, ha, it’s in a New York subway but you’re right, could be way down south in Luu-zee-ana. 😉
      Great work on spotting the dollar bill Sherlock!

        The set-up looked familiar. The banjo said “South”. (Love bluegrass myself) But this was a tricky picture. Well done Nilla Watson. 😉

        Ha, ha, I like to test my readers… 😉

    Yes, it could be lots of places. It looks like a dollar bill there so I am going to say New York although I’m not convinced the people in the background are New Yorkers. Subway station or underground??? I like the faces.

      You’re spot on Carolyn!
      I took this in 2011 but can’t remember which subway it is – I guess that’s the problem when you don’t name your files.
      Great work on spotting the dollar bill. 😉
