Please read: This is a community-maintained wiki post containing the most important information from this thread. You may edit the Wiki once you have been on FT for 90 days and have made 90 posts.
 
Rules of play
The Rules are below, the main one being. Please, only one photo at a time until we have a confirmed correct answer. It makes it much easier to keep track of.
  1. Take an obscure photo of a BA location you are currently in (or have visited recently)
  2. Post on this thread and add a clue (if you feel itís required)
    The goal is then to be the first person to correctly guess the location.
  3. The OP confirms who has the first correct guess
  4. The OP updates the win to the Wiki
    If the winner has not won before, their name is entered and the post date/time they won is added below. If the winner has won before, the date and time of the post they won is added below their name.
    USER NAME
    Location guessed, Photo post #, time guessed in.
    Location guessed, Photo post #, time guessed in.
    Location guessed, Photo post #, time guessed in.
    etc. etc
  5. To try and keep it further within the remit of the forum, I think double points should be awarded in the event that the OP can get a BA logo into the photo without giving the game away.
  6. Multiple guesses are allowed, but must be turn about with other members and at least 10 mins apart
  7. Please try and keep it to one live photo at a time.

Sharing Bread


My husband took this photo. I love how he captured the shadow of the bread the little boy was tearing to share.

@AnaTravel Script looks like Geʽez, guessing Amharic, thus Ethiopia probably? Addis Ababa?

Hang on please, no-one has guessed #331 yet.

Another clue: It's the capital of it's territory/state/province but not capital of it's country.

Congrats it's Austin. I've updated the wiki.

Actually DFW is on Cretaceous rocks too, although neither is actually on the "famous" Austin Chalk...

I have been travelling in Africa for the last five weeks, Florens. Your guess (from pretty little) was good. Another clue:

The temperature on the terrace at 15:00 recently.

I guess from your background that you may have been working on the recent Austin Chalk "bonanza"? I'll have to dig out a photo with a geological clue myself... meanwhile we need to address this African conundrum!

Well done, Woodbinerich. British Airways operate routes to and from Cairo.
