Photo Challenge #109

Last week’s photo challenge was one of those hidden-in-plain-sight, wow-what-was-the-name-of-that-place-again? puzzles.

Elayne Landau, Jacques Voris, Dan Vener, Diane Silfen, Susan Iseman, Linda Amos, Billy Scalzi, Tracy Flood, Susan Huppi, Amee Borys, Leslie Flinn and Joan Navin all knew that Fred Cantor’s photo of a cute little storefront — with #9 near the door — was sitting there on Riverside Avenue, near the Post Road.

Some of those folks — nearly all of them, for some reason, women — called it Circa Antiques.

But only Robert Mitchell — a guy — knew it was Bella Bridesmaids.

Go figure.

The next time you’re stuck at that interminable light, check it out. Or — much easier — click here.

This week’s challenge is not hidden in plain sight. In fact, I didn’t even know where it was, until photographer Lynn U. Miller told me.

But I know our very observant “06880” readers have seen it. Click “Comments” below, and add any stories about it that you know.
