guess where

There's a game on Friendfeed where people guess where a photo was taken. My friend Gary is the reigning expert at this game.

In that vein, guess where this photo of me and my brother Tom was taken. It's from last month:



As a hint, on the same day, we went to a delightful museum where we saw these works:


Islamic vase. The blue used in Islamic art is very eye-catching. I am curious whether Istanbul is as exotic to visit as the sense you get from the art.


Courtyard inside the museum. It's good when museums have natural lighting.


I find it impressive when artists can mold glass into their desired colors and textures.


Vases can be very interesting, because they combine form and function. The shape is basically defined, and yet there are infinite variations.

this is way too easy... you can't use a tourist attraction.

Or was it a trick question?

Brooklyn bridge? New York?

Never been to NY, but it looks like pictures of the Brooklyn Bridge. Were you guys noodling around at the Met?

This one is too easy. I'm from there. I won't spill the beans.

Last month you were in New York and this seems to be Brooklyn Bridge. Is there any prize? :)

Vegas? Wait, there's real rust on that handrail, and they Don't Allow Rust In Vegas, since, once there, it would stay. So, Brooklyn, or, more technically, above the East River.

I was on the same trip, dropping a son off at college. We also walked the Brooklyn Bridge - don't miss it. However, we finished the day at the MOMA rather than the Met, although we did see the backside of the Met as we wondered Central Park earlier in the day. Gotta love NYC.
