This one may be my favorite... I tend to linger, unable to stop admiring it... I wonder what that person is thinking down there...


Ahh my favorite city... a classic...


With summer coming up this brings back great memories... Can't wait to get s'more of these shots...


What type of photos do I like the most?

  • Feedback on drawing puzzles would be appreciated, I'm still testing the water to see how people feel about them. I want to ultimately make some more elaborate hand drawn puzzles.

You like

SKYLINES (And indeed each photo has one)

The first picture

If you hover over it (I tend to linger) you get FXL. Joining the dots on the picture gives:
enter image description here
And there are 13 dots. This clues rot13.

Applying that to FXL gives SKY

The second picture (solved with help from Tech in chat)

The town name is BINARY backwards. Taking a window as 0 and a bold line as 1 we get:
01001100 01001001

Which is binary for LI

The last picture (solved by Sconibulus in chat)

Taking the birds as morse ('s'more') gives:

-. .

Which is morse for NE

Putting this together:



Not a final answer but just a litle try.

Seems you like to photograph situations where natural objects appears to be in straight line. Especially 3 or more objects in a straight line or almost straight line. We can draw straightline through any 2 objects; but for three-objects, co-linearity is quite less-probable, so rarer shots.


Stars over the plateau
On this image of stars seen from the plateau; some co-linear stars being seen.

On the cityscape, lot such similar straight lines could be found. Seascape

    $\begingroup$ Note the cipher tag. For instance, if you hover over the first image you get FXL which is rot13 for 'SKY', this is a lot more complicated that just that. For instance the city name is 'BINARY' backwards $\endgroup$ May 17 '17 at 17:21
  • $\begingroup$ @BeastlyGerbil I'm seeing so; many of the puzzles in this size are very big and complicated and often seeking multiple folds of complex decryption. $\endgroup$ May 17 '17 at 17:38

    $\begingroup$ It's not overly complicated, but again, this is not what I am going for. You'll be able to deduce a word from them as indicated by the word tag. - If you take those lines you drew on the 1st image, and just connect the dots on the two cohesive sets of stars you'll find the clue to the cipher Gerbil uncovered ;) $\endgroup$
