Point of order question, like do we have any rules about who can post a picture?

Like in the History thread, the person that correctly identifies the posted photo is the only one that can post a photo, or is it anyone that wants?

Thanks

Good guess, but it was five start hotel.

But you're close enough, that was my view out of my hotel room in Hong Kong, the Hyatt Regency when I stayed there one trip.

Northern hemisphere.

White pine, white birch (or maybe aspen) implies northern US or Canada. (Birch trees like cold weather.) or maybe Russia, but somehow it looks American.

The what the heck (not trash cans) set in concrete (with graffiti?) A roadside rest area with mundane utilities nearby?

No idea.

By that, I mean the state, not in.

Indeed.

No. Nearest road is roughly 200m/630ft away.

Quote:

No. (and not in the UK either, so you can tick that off your list too).


I'll let it run a bit longer and think about giving a clue or two...
