    Default Unique Picture Contest Part VI

    Thank you to everyone for being patient with me. Round VI is going to be different then the other rounds Snowy and I have done in the past!

    Round VI

    This round is going to have an overall theme - Landmarks around the world. Each topic I will choose a different country. You will need to post a landmark that can be found in that country. For example if the country was China - you could post a picture of the great wall of china. However to make things a little more interesting. You can not post a picture of a landmark that someone else has already posted. So for example if Mimi posts a pic of the great wall of china for the China topic - no one else could post a pic of that landmark - you would have to find another landmark. Also, for a verification process I would like for you to post the link where you found that picture, so I can verify that in fact, that landmark is in that country. If this round goes well - we will have future rounds that will be themed. I want to try to keep things fresh in this contest. If you guys totally hate this round...then we will stick to random topics. All feed back is appreciated! Feel free to PM me with comments or suggestions if you don't want to post them in the thread.

    Thanks and I hope you enjoy this round!

    love the new idea!

    first I will put link where pic I am posting is and second is a link which verifies it is in India

    Know about this place as a prof I used to date had been there (one that took me to Greece in 2001) I helped him with sorting all his materials and photos to use for the class he was preparing to use them for
    an amazing place I'd love to see someday!

    Brnzstar,
    If fear causes hesitation, and hesitation causes your worst fears to come true...what happens if you only fear hesitation??

    Default Landmarks of India

    Netsirk,
    This is such a cool idea! Love it! We all get some history lessons as we go.

    Here is the link to my picture. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doda_Alada_Mara

    Here is the caption explaining it. This is so cool! A tree that covers 3 acres!!

    The Doda Alada Mara (also spelled Dodda Alada Mara) is a giant Banyan tree located in the village of Ramohalli, approximately 28 kilometers west of the city of Bangalore, Karnataka, India. This single plant covers 3 acres and is one of the largest of its kind. It is said to be 400 years old.

    No question is a stupid question if you don't
    know the answer. Stupid is not asking.
