    From the look of the Building on the left, I would say New Orleans.

    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Let's not be didactic in this profession, because that is a path to disillusion and irrelevancy.

    I'll say St. Louis, because I think I see a premonition of the Arch in the background.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    I figured it was LV since no one had guessed it yet, and it was an obvious choice for Nevada. I also knew that Freemont was the first street with a traffic light, which seems centered in one of the photos.
