    Yes!!!!!

    the first one is around Gamla Stan (the Old Town)

    That was in December, which I think is about the 7th or 8th time I've been there!!

    I know, this is the o/s version, but let's use the way-way-way back machine.
    It's about 1972 and I am the huge-headed, small kid rockin' the dude hat. Accompanied by my dorky cousin.
    Guess the Aus resort.

    I have no idea, but that is one awesome photo! Seriously did you your head shrink? Are they horse drawn carriages in the background? How can you still post when you're 100? Finally are you gay? If not, why are you holding a boy's hand?

    Yes, even at that age I was exuding the throbbing masculinity that defines me now.
    That head/body combo is like a pumpkin on a stick.
    It's a miracle of physics that I even managed to remain upright, and not topple over.

    That reminds me, we should have a "photos of kids at ski resorts" photo thread.
    I'm pretty sure I can out-dork everyone.

    Zeroz,
    Baw Baw? Pure guess, never been there.
    Pork pie hats and shorts around your armpits are marking a comeback I hear.

    Zeroz looks like Falls Creek.

    Funky's first one looks like Saguaro National Park near Tucson, Arizona.... used to live not far from there.

    We have two winners...

    Isla de Pescador

    It looks like a fish from the distance. While there are other islands on the salt lakes, none have the number and size of cacti as IdP.

    What was I doing? Possibly the most beautiful trip I've ever been on. Sitting in a 4WD for 4 days, driving from ~3,800m asl to as high as 5,000m asl seeing salt lakes, cacti, desert ranges, volcanoes, red lakes, green lakes (clue picture above), pink flamingos, llamas, geysers, train grave yards, rock formations.

    Thing is, prior to going to Sth America, I had no intention on going to Bolivia, and had never heard of Salar de Uyuni.

    With a $100 point and shoot 35mm camera, I have some of the best pictures I've ever taken. Sample below.

    I think the other photo is probably too hard (it could be a tree anywhere), as you can't see the surrounding volcanos (it is El Lechero, Otavalo - Ecuador).
