Where was the picture taken?
Many thanks to Matt from thebookblogger and Thumbup at Live Love Laugh for their brave guesses on the previous challenge, but last week Quilt Musings joined in again and then it’s a bit like lining up for 100 metres against Usain Bolt. She found the exact spot, the top of the Potemkin Stairs in Odessa, Ukraine. Finished in 1841, the stairs were renamed in 1955 for the 50th anniversary of the mutiny aboard the Battleship Potemkin, a key event in the period leading up to the Russian Revolution.
Here’s a view from the bottom of the steps:
People probably wouldn’t pose there as much as they do if the steps hadn’t been made more famous by Eisenstein in his 1925 silent movie devoted to the event.
Thanks to all participants. Keep the guesses coming – this week’s (at the top) should be an easy one! Pic’n’Post will henceforth move to Wednesdays, so the answer won’t be till 8th July. Happy guessing!
