A little riddle
Now you can see that this is a glass, but what is that pattern on it? All the clues are in the picture.

It's a new design concept by a friend of mine. There are 6 different designs. Can you guess what the others might be?

I'm going to guess that it's a street map of Helsinki, and that the white shapes are the outlines of buildings.

Correct! - it is a stylised map of downtown Hki. The other glasses in the set are Berlin, Paris, London, Rome, New York.

This sculpture is of a moderately well known French sculptor and painter of the 19th century who has a square named after him in the 18th arondissement of Paris. Get out your maps, Ted.

Here's the square.

"Square Carpeaux is a pleasant splash of green in the 18th arrondissement.   There is a playground for the neighborhood's children, lots of benches under beautiful shady trees, and even a fin-de-siècle bandstand.   (Alas, the bandstand is being refitted and is not used at present.)

The Square is named for Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux (1827 - 1875), a sculptor-artist and graduate of the School of Beaux-Arts of Paris."

No one has ever called me pretty.  I am not pretty.  

I have been told I'm stunningly beautiful, but there is no accounting for taste...  Apparently Matt Damon is the sexiest man alive.  I don't understand these things...

Technically yes, but it's before the confluence. Dare I ask which Nile?  I'm actually not sure.  I photographed both the Blue and the White and the confluence (I have yet to find all the photographs though).  I believe this is the White Nile at sunset. If not, it's the Blue Nile at dawn. Such confusion.  The White has a heavier flow most of the time and is usually muddier, but the Blue surges in the summer due to the rains in Ethiopia.

Hm. The "how" must refer to photographing the reflection on something?

I checked Bay Bridge East (different lamps), Chesapeake Bay (wrong geometry), Sunshine Skyway (long removed), Cooper River, neither looks like it...

Nothing too intelligent... From the second photo, it was obviously NOT a river. There aren't many choices. Already cheched half of the possibilities (see upthread), so I went to Wikipedia and continued with the other San Francisco Bay bridges. I think gioele used the photo there to make his cropped colorless version.

yep...

Very good, now how do you imagine I took the picture?

Remember that this one is a cropping of another, larger, photo...

Ding, ding, ding....

You are correct!

Don't try this at home folks (driving while shooting). My head buzzing with coffee at 06:30, I thought the picture of the sun coming up in the mirror would be cool, cracked windscreen and all...

Ha! If it is a reflection in the mirror, could it be Astoria Bridge?

Taken aboard a vehicle ferry?  And is that the Queensboro Bridge?  Or am I on the wrong coast?
