I am going to try something a little different for MikeDiDonato.com

I’d like to put together a big game of GUESS THAT SKYLINE!

on my recent trip through the south of the US, I was a little bit wowed by the variety of skylines that mankind has constructed.

So here’s my plea.
I would very much love it if you would take a picture of a city skyline that’s close to you and e-mail it to me along with your name, the direction the picture was taken (ex. “From the south” “From the East”) and the name of the city. my email address is:
mikedidonato AT gmail DOT com

It’ll be all sorts of fun. The pictures can be night or day photographs. If you’re feeling gutsy, you can even take paint to paper and do your own artsy rendition of your skyline.

Once collected, I will make some sort of Guess the Skyline game and not only will we have fun, we may even learn a bit about our world’s architecture!

I will remind you regularly of this. Ideally, I’d love all skylines by the end of March. but we’ll see how many I get.

    Another fun variation would be “guess that satellite image. I’m always amazed at how some things look from above, and I often check stuff out on Google Maps to see it. When I go to hike a new area or bike ride a new route, I’ll print out some imagery first and bring it with me.

    I actually participated (and won) a satellite image contest on another website last year. I’ve been thinking of starting my own ever since. I’ve just never gotten around to it. Maybe Mike D and I can team up for this contest (he’ll run the skylines and I’ll run the satellite photos) for the month of April or whatever.

    A while ago I was going to do a “Which blogger lives here?” satellite image competition, but never got around to tracking down enough people. Also, the resolution really sucks in some places (like where I live).

    Since I’m living essentially in new york city, would it be appropriate for me to take skyline shots of the different boroughs to be guessed?
