Each Monday, I post a mystery photo, or occasionally a mystery object. I encourage you to leave a comment if you think you might know where this week’s mystery photograph, shown immediately below, is located, or what it is. If you guess correctly, I will link back to your blog the following week when the answer will be revealed.

Drop me an email if you would like to submit a photography to Monday Mystery Photo. Guest submissions of MM photos are very welcome.

mmpoct16What town are we overlooking in the above photo?  And if that is too easy, what structure is the photo taken from?

Last time, on Monday Mystery Photo, we were in The Netherlands, in Delft’s Markt square, at the City Hall, a beautiful Renaissance style building, seen below.

City hall Delft

Delft City hall

It is the former seat of the city’s government, and still today the place where residents hold their civic wedding ceremonies. Originally designed by the Dutch architect Hendrick de Keyser, it was heavily changed over the centuries and was restored in the 20th century to its Renaissance appearance.

The following bloggers guessed correctly! Well done!

Pooja from Stories from Europe

The above – mentioned bloggers Pondered About the photograph. Enough to accurately guess its location. Will they do it again this week?

  1. The double decker bus seems to indicate the UK, but…the traffic is driving on the right side. So, my guess is Norway.

  2. The lack of ugly signage also seems to indicate it can’t be an English Speaking country. I now think it could be Sweden.

    The double decker would suggest Englnd of course, as it is red, had it been burgundy it could have been Scotland, but as the bus is on the right side of the road it must be a Norwegian tourist bus. (we use double deckers) We have them both in Oslo and Bergen. The mountain in the background is too tall for Oslo so my guess is Bergen. A wild guess for the building the picture is taken from would be the Hakon’s Hall “”Håkonshallen”

    If I’m right, this would make the sailing ship the school ship “Statsråd Lehmkuhl”

    It’s looking familar to norwegian Bergen – so I agree with “tidiousted”, maybe the location the photo is taken is “Rosenkrantz Tower” just beside “Haakonshallen” – in Bergen we can meet these red “hop on hop off” busses… 🙂

  6. So, everyone’s gone for Norway and you’re saying it might be too easy… I’m as puzzled as always!! Hahah!! At least I’ve learned that location guessing is not my forte. Looking forward to finding out, though!
