OK, I'll see how this goes as this could either be fun or die out quickly. For the game you post a photo of a city and others have to guess what city it is. Make the pictures be of the STREET LEVEL of the city and not something obvious like the skyline of NYC or the Golden Gate Bridge in SF. That is sort of like a big "Duh." In order to guess right the person will have to look at the unique flavor and surroundings of the city's street level enviornment to guess where the photo is from. Don't post more than three photos please.

City # 1


City # 2


Good luck guessing. I hope these aren't obvious and I hope this can turn into something fun and hopefully a good way to share what the street activity of US cities look like (rather than lifeless skylines).

Would the poster's location be a bit of a giveaway or are they not supposed to post their own area?...

LOL I thought you were going to post a picture of Mission Viejo. People would guess "Lake Forest?" "Laguna Niguel?" "Irvine?" and the joke would be on us because they all look the same! J/k, missionhome The first picture looks like Portland.

HAHA. No kidding! I like it here and its nice for the kids but I need those weekend trips to LA, San Diego, San Francisco, Santa Barbara, etc... to go somewhere where all the homes aren't the same.

Here are two pictures from the same city:

I'll contribute a few: these can be from the same city or different cities. Guess where they were taken, and state why you guess that (memory, architecture, etc.)
