What & Where

I feel the need for a quiz, the first of the new year!  Without further ado here are your clues:

  • It’s not at or from Point Lookout.
  • This looks like an image from a microscope, but it’s not.  Or is it?
  • The material looks a lot like coquina, but — strictly speaking — it doesn’t qualify.  Or does it?

As always, there are no rules.  You can shotgun your answers, use your search engine of choice, and do reverse image look-ups all you want.  The point is to have fun and beat Tillerman… if you can.  Enjoy!

UPDATE:  The quiz has already ended, Tillerman has taken the crown AGAIN!  The correct answer is the Louisiana State Capitol, and the proper image orientation and full framing are shown below.

      Your garage door? I know you live in a tiny state, Tillerman — but New York State? (rolls eyes)

      And, no — my clue isn’t from New York City or New York State.

      Hmmmmm. According to Wikipedia, “The Mason–Dixon line, also called Mason’s and Dixon’s line, was surveyed between 1763 and 1767 by Charles Mason and Jeremiah Dixon in the resolution of a border dispute involving Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Delaware in Colonial America. It is still a demarcation line among four U.S. states, forming part of the borders of Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, and West Virginia (originally part of Virginia).”

      So, no — since it isn’t located in one of those states.

      It doesn’t look like the image from an electronic scanning microscope?

      And coquina is really what this building material looks like, though the shells that make up this limestone (coquina is a form of limestone) are technically too small for it to be defined as coquina. The shells that make up coquina are 2mm and larger.

    The details of the first photo are so stunning. You may think there is only one thing there, in front of your eyes, but the particular features of the photo make you feel like stretching your hand and touch it; the perspective is also great as it reveals the texture of the wall. Bottom line, the picture has indeed force.
