Details. Details. Details.
Often, as we do research (especially of the SearchResearch kind), the little details of the Challenge turn out to be important. This is especially the case when you're trying to figure out where a particular picture has been taken.
Remember back in 2012 when we did the SearchResearch Challenge with this picture?
The key there was to do a search with the logo atop the building, and then the rest is pretty straightforward. That logo is a small, relevant detail (and the flag in the lower left is an irrelevant detail)--you have to do the search to actually figure this out.
Or, remember this location search Challenge to find what was important beneath the feet at the location of the photographer?
In this case, once you identified the Coliseum, you had to use the details of the topographic map of the area nearby to figure out where this location is... and find out what's below the photographer's feet.
Learning to "read the details" of a photograph is a key skill for photoanalysis, and that's what the point of this week's Challenge is. Can you figure out where these locations are?
1. Where is this? (And aside from being a random street, what's important about this location?)
2. Where is THIS? More to the point, what building is this?
3. Finally, where is this... and what's interesting about this particular view?
Be sure to reveal how you figured out the answers. It's okay if you just recognize the place (just say so), but if you had to go through a search process, be sure to tell us how you did it when you post in the comments. We all want to learn how you did it. Tell us so we can all get better!
I suspect that these will be a bit more challenging than ordinary--so let us also know about how much time it took you to figure out the answers.
