    Join the club of bad spelling.

    It is actually spelled Fredrikstad with one s now. It is in Norway for those who haven't caught on yet

    Skye Bridge in Scotland. The most powerful clan in the olde days was Clan MacLeod although the Norse were present in force for a while as well. In the really old days, the Iron Age, the Pictish probably lived there.

    Hi all, been busy recently but now able to suggest Altare della Patria or the Monumwnt to Victor Emmanuel or half a dozzen other names for this structure in Rome. An unusually and cleverly angled shot designed to make life difficult.

    bg2b - you may have been but I think it would have to have been in the last two years since this was built.

    Guy - could be in a generic sort of way though I don't think specific.

    All - here is a neighbouring shot to help you all along:-

    Wake up ken610!

    More seriously for some time now we have been struggling to keep this going and I have less and less time myself. I do have a few images suitable if others are still keen to keep it going.

    Meanwhile, and if Ken cannot get us going, how about a where is this with a purpose for 4/3rd users? You will all have read the news of the new EM-1 and many of you will have seen the video. I havn't seen the video but I have seen the photos on 43rumors and stevehuffphoto. Anyone think they know where the photos were taken? Yellow taxis, English language road markings, urban square with trees ... quite a challenge.

    Hi John. It's been awhile for me. With dealing with relocating and helping my folks after my dad's stroke, and then him passing away several months later, I had a lot on my plate this past year. Hmm, my keyboard isn't working right. Can't spaced down. Ok... is it somewhere in Canada? Ann
