test results

No one scored 100% on the photo quiz I posted a week ago. Some of you came very close however. You were asked to identify five of the landmarks (with city and state) that my family visited on our 3,000 mile road trip. The correct answers are:

1) Gateway Arch, St. Louis, Missouri
I like the way the photo on the left has an optical illusion quality.

2) World's Largest Rubber Stamp, Cleveland, Ohio
Its official name is just "Free Stamp." Here's a different angle featuring one of the GuitarMania public art displays. If you look closely at last week's photo, you can see the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in the background.

3) Niagara Falls State Park, Niagara Falls, New York
More about our visit to Niagara Falls later this week.

4) The Big Duck, Flanders, New York
I remember two things about the Big Duck from childhood. Seeing it meant we were getting close to Grandma's house and we could always smell the adjacent duck farm before we saw it.

5) Independence Hall, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
As seen in the movie "National Treasure," except that the filmmakers used the replica of the Hall at Knott's Berry Farm.

Well I got 2 correct of the 3 that I guessed. I did notice that some others playing thought - as I did - that #1 might be the Washington Monument.

Everytime I see the Big Duck, I can't help but think of the Robert Venturi book, Complexity and Contradiction in Architecture :)
