Weekly Challenge #497 - Places You've Been
Posted By: atupdate, 05-24-2020, 02:04 PM

For this week's challenge, I'm looking for some of the lessor known places that produce interesting photo-ops. Please add a description of where your photo-op was taken. This will be my virtual vacation.

This challenge will close on May 31st at 5 PM EDST.

The fine print:
Every week, a new theme is picked and judged by the winner of the previous week.

1. Post ONE photo (max 1024x1024).
2. The photo must portray an interpretation of the theme.
3. Post your single picture in this thread and explain what motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly theme (especially if it's not obvious).
4. The challenge is interactive. Any response is welcome.
5. The judge will pick the WINNERS and choose one of them to be the judge for the next week.
6. This challenge runs for 7 days plus an additional day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Any Pentax/Ricoh (DSLR) camera can be used.
8. Pictures can be from any time frame, not just within the week of the current theme.
9. In case the winner of a challenge is unable to become the judge for the next challenge, they will PM the #2 winner for that person to be the judge



Rock -n- Roll Hall of Fame, Cleveland, OH

Lake Michigan, Grand Haven, MI

Great American Ball Park, Cincinnati, OH

Good luck to all.

Amorgos, Greece. A hiker's paradise off the beaten cruise path of the other Cyclades with all the same delicious food and comfortable accommodations. This is looking down on the mountaintop chora (capital) of the island around sunset. Spent about a week there last year and it was a photographic bonanza.

The western end of the Miraflores locks in Panama. The third, wider, modern "lane" was still under construction when I was in Panama in 2013, hence the maritime traffic congestion. The Panama Canal was opened in 1914; while it isn't as naturally beautiful as the rest of this small country, it is a key piece in our global economy.

OK Boss- Cape Recife Lighthouse and Nature Reserve, Port Elizabeth. Can't believe I grew up there and never visited the place in the 21 years I lived there. On recent visits to the family, I was repeatedly encouraged to visit the place, and well, it is now a must visit when I get to go there.

Not my most stunning photo, but I entered it because, despite being taken only 9 months ago, this scene will be different for a while to come, a church, a pub a coffee shop, all closed at the moment...a narrow medieval street whcih would make social distancing very difficult. I hope the elderly couple live together because they certainly wouldn't be allowed to walk arm-in arm if the don't!
