Guess Where? Traffic Cones

201103-b-guess-41jpg

With the deadline to submit images to our Strangest Sights photo contest coming up soon, I thought I'd make this week's Guess Where a bit bizarre. For years, this statue has been repeatedly "coned" by locals despite frequent reminders by the city's police department that it is unsafe and against the law to climb up on the statue and do so. Can you figure out where this is? Bonus points if you can guess who the man on the horse is.

Log in and leave your guesses below and check back here on Monday for the answer.

If you'd like to add your weirdly wonderful images to our photo contest, the deadline to submit images is next Tuesday, May 31 and you can do it here.

UPDATE 5/31/11: This is MyFareFoodie's second correct guess! This is the Duke of Wellington Statue in Glasgow, Scotland.

201105-b-hoolajpg

It seemed like New York would never emerge from the clutches of winter up until a few days ago. But with the temperatures now in the 70s and Memorial Day weekend nearly here it seems like summer has finally arrived.

To celebrate that, Loews Hotels is rolling out the “Summer of Loews” to treat families to the extra things that make the season so much fun—including dance parties, BBQs and roving ice cream carts.

Guess Where? Low Tide

201103-b-guess-34jpg

It's been hard to stump our guessers recently, so all we're going to tell you about this photo is that it was taken in the United Kingdom. Can you figure out where this bay is located?

UPDATE 5/23/11: For the first time in a long time, nobody guessed where this picture was taken. This is Elie Bay at low tide in the Kingdom of Fife, Scotland.

Guess Where? Hallway

201103-b-guess-36jpg

This hallway may remind of the set from a Harry Potter movie, but it's not in Europe. Can you figure out where this is?

Log in and leave your guesses below and be sure to check back on Monday for the correct answer.

UPDATE 5/09/11: We finally stumped you guys! While there were some great guesses, nobody figured out that these gothic arches are at New Jersey's Princeton University. Look for our next edition of Guess Where? this Friday.

Guess Where? Man on White Horse

201103-b-guess-32jpg

This picture of a horse and its rider were carved into a hill in the early 19th century in a seaside town. Do you have any idea where this is? Bonus points if you can guess which king is was created in honor of!

Log in and leave your guesses below and be sure to check back on Monday for the correct answer.

UPDATE 5/02/11: Way to go T+L community member BrendaWeatherhead! You guessed correctly that this hillside carving is the Osmington White Horse monument in Dorset, near Weymouth Bay. This 260 ft. figure was carved into the hills in 1808 by locals in honor of King George III who frequently visited the town.

Guess Where? City Greenery

201103-b-guess-25jpg

This bucolic scene is in an unexpected location. Can you guess where this is? Let us know if you need a clue.

Log in and leave your guesses below and be sure to check back on Monday for the correct answer.

UPDATE 4/25/11: We thought this one would stump you guys, but T+L community member sherrylachelle actually got this one! This image is of the Washington Mews in New York. This house, which looks like it belongs in the Tuscan countryside, is located right in the middle of Greenwich Village on a privated gated street a few blocks north of Washington Square Park. Originally built as stables, these buildings now house offices and residences for New York University.
