Guess the city!

Post by SpongeBuell » Wed Feb 04, 2009 12:36 pm

So, I thought this could be kinda fun, though it could only be for wannabe geography dorks like me. Basically, people post photos of places they've been to, and others guess what city that place is. Gotta be somewhat obvious, though... skylines and obvious landscapes and stuff, not you driving through a tiny town nobody's heard of or a random McDonalds that could be anywhere. Oh, and they need to be your own photos, too.

My contributions to start (for those that are friends with me on Facebook, no cheating :P )

Image
(not Las Vegas, Reno, or Boston) - Kansas City, MO (The Country Club Plaza, an upscale shopping district near the state line)
Image
(hint: Not Washington, DC) Solved by eagle5953: Madison, WI (State Capitol)

Image
(not New York) Toronto, Ontario, Canada (University Avenue, downtown)

Image
Solved by khaag: Honolulu, HI - Pali Lookout

Image
(Not Chicago) Dallas - Downtown

@nightwheel: Not 100% sure which one you are asking about, but the answer is no anyway :P

That one second from the bottom is somewhere in Hawaii? Maybe somewhere in Honolulu?

Here's one:

Yep... in the future, I'll probably just edit the original post if it's right, so keep your eyes peeled

Is that Toronto in that picture, though?

Nope, not Toronto. I'll give you a hint, it's not in North America.

The architecture tells me it's probably in East Asia somewhere. A thought just popped, Fukoka, Japan, no idea why. Probably wrong.

Nope, not in Asia either. Neither is it Dubai.

@Spongey, is the top one maybe Las Vegas? And the one with the fountains, New York?

Khagg's is Australia.

That's the Sydney tower, and it looks similar, but not the same.

But it's definitely in Australia, because the building structures are the same, and that's where he's been living for a while now.
