For over 8 years, our Sunday Photo Challenge has highlighted scenes all over Westport.
Some are easy. Some are — well, challenging.
But none elicited as many wrong answers as last week’s. Responses were — literally — all over the map.
Readers guessed that Lynn Untermeyer Miller’s image showed Longshore, Winslow Park, Temple Israel, Taylortown Marsh, Sherwood Island State Park, the Leonard Schine Preserve, Riverside Park and Greens Farms Academy.
No, no, no, no, no, no, no and no.
The serene scene actually showed the walking path behind Bedford Middle School. It links Staples High — by the pool and Paul Lane Field — with the Wakeman Park athletic facilities. (Click here to see.)
Jen Dennison was — after quite a while — the first reader to correctly guess the spot. Brandon Malin — who said he spent plenty of time walking and skateboarding there, during Staples phys. ed. classes — followed soon.
One reader groused: “I don’t think it’s a fair picture. There are so many paths that look like that in Westport. When you’re walking and enjoying nature you don’t study exactly where you are. It’s sort of saying I’ll meet you near the trees.”
Hey: That’s why it’s called a Photo “Challenge”!
This week’s image might elicit a similar complaint. Sure, it could be many places in Westport.
But it’s only one.
Chew on it for a while. Then — if you think you know where you’d see this — click “Comments” below.
