Broadway Game: Where Am I on Broadway?
I was looking through a pretty cool new book I got for my 3 year-old niece that is full of extreme close-ups of easily recognizable objects, like a real close-up of an orange or a tire tread. So I got an idea that it might be fun to see how well we Broadway fans might do with extreme close-ups. Could we recognize famous theatres, logos and landmarks from a very close up picture? We'll see, because here are some very extreme close-ups. (Eat your heart out, Norma Desmond!)
And I dedicate this game to my friend and fellow blogger, Esther, who is on her first trip to Broadway in 2010! (Hope you are having a GREAT time!)
Here is a sample:
Of course, this is a New York Taxi!
Remember: there are theatre district landmarks, hangouts, marquees and show logos here. Be as specific as you can! Good luck!
Here's a difficult one, unless you actually been there... if you read my blog, you know I go there a lot!
Look for the answers in "Bits and Pieces for 08.01.2010"
