Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Right so far, but where and how?

And if you figure that out, you'll know, possibly, whether that is the rising or the setting sun...

Is it a pinhole camera/camera obscura projection?

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.

How -- against the Sun?

Where -- I would guess somewhere along the Mississippi.

I take that back! The ship must be travelling on a lorry on another bridge, so the cantilever one must be higher. No idea... Maybe New York, somewhere across the East River?

But look at the structure on the left. I'd say european.

But where ...

European? Such cantilever constructions are much more common in the US.

I can close out New York, the Queensboro Bridge has spires. You made me think of Europe, but I can only think of the Rendsburg High Bridge, which has different ratios. Hm...

At last I also recognised the headlights of the next car and the one in the other lane...

Ah, headlights, of course. I see what you're saying.

Good sleuth.

-- Nope, Mississippi is not correct...

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...

OK, you have to tell me how you do that.

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?
