Default Where are we?

If Ray can do photo stumpers, so can I.

Except this one is pretty easy. I love the colors and textures. Where did I shoot it?

Curacao....?

edited to say: the more I look at the picture, and, see the people on bicycles, I think it's Amsterdam.

Awesome photo, love those colors! I think it is a fooler or maybe not!

I think I'd say Copenhagen but I think I've seen that look in Italy, Ireland, other places in Europe, too! :-)

I see the way the roofs are made, the type of paint on the buildings, I don't know.

Angela and Susan win. It was shot from a canal boat in Copenhagen. I had a hunch some people would say Amsterdam, which is a good guess, but I don't recall the buidings there being that colorful. I could be wrong.

But on any given string of buildings along the canals of Amsterdam, you'd surely see a couple with those gizmos at the top that they use to attach the blocks and tackles when they haul the furniture up through the windows because the stairways are too narrow.

Weren't they taxed in Amsterdam according to the width of their homes, hence they are very narrow?

I think it points up the benefits of NOT having a condo association.
