December points table

November saw more activity and a broader spread of points than October or September, in fact it was more like August, July or June. Ten points to Anthony for taking out first place and continuing to cement his enormous overall lead, five to Nico, three to Matt Lemieux and one to Martin Kemp. There are currently 517 points on offer, which is easily enough for someone to overtake Anthony.

December points table

79: Anthony
42: Jonathan
15: Geoff C
12: H. Goldsmith
8: jm, Matt Lemieux
5: Moffitt the prophet
3: Aric Clark
Five points for naming the city in the image above. Once someone has guessed correctly, there will be eight for the name of the church in the centre of the image. And then once both of those are taken, I'll give twelve to someone else again for the approximate compass direction the camera was facing. Finally, once all the other points are gone, I'll give fifteen to someone who can name the structure on which I was standing to take this shot. No more than one attempt per person please.

Well done. Five points. The eight points are now available (to someone else).

Oh - I hadn't seen Aric's answer before I wrote my reply. I'll give you three for getting in before me.

byron smith said...

Moffitt - you've just moved into second place.

Matt Lemieux said...

The church in view is the Basilica of St. Mary of Health(Salvation).

Matt L: Well done - eight points.

byron smith said...

The twelve points are now available.

you were facing roughly east. east-southeast, to be slightly more specific. (or that's my guess, based on the wonderful google maps.)

Since h.goldsmith's guess doesn't seem to have arrived with the actual answer intact, I will say the Accademia Bridge.

Jonathan said...

Oops... I missed the twelve points question. Change my last comment to "Since h.goldsmith seems to have earned the twelve points..."

Somehow I missed the fact that h. goldsmith had offered a correct answer. Twelve points. And fifteen to Jonathan.
