Thanks, BadCold.

That's funny about the black cat. You wouldn't think it would be that hard to find, but it was the last item for me, as well, and definitely the most difficult. I had a perfect horizon pic in mind(a shot looking out over lake Erie), but decided to save some time and miles, and use the wildcard option instead.

This one's a little trickier than I thought it would be. Having a hard time with a couple of them. The only suspension bridge anywhere near here is a foot bridge and it's down a trail a mile or two... And a slate roof is just going to have to happen. Can't look it up, or I just haven't found a way to look one up...

I wouldn't sweat it just yet.

Yeah, some of the simplest, most primitive suspension bridges(such as foot bridges) are suspended with nothing more than rope. Many older homes, barns and churches in Ohio have slate roofs......they're quite common.

Ok, we'll leave it as is, for now.

Last chance for anyone trying to grab the current tag......as is. I will make changes sometime tomorrow, if no one grabs it by then.

I'm making three changes to the current tag so that someone can put it to bed. It seems finding a building with a slate roof and/or locating a suspension bridge is proving difficult. I've expanded on those two items, as well as the free standing clock tower.

Updated tag:

1) a building with a slate or tile roof

2) a building with 2, or more, arched windows

3) a suspension or arch bridge

4) a barn with advertising painted on it

5) a clock tower - either free standing or attached to a building

Wildcard) a bus or train station that's currently being used as such. You can use one, or the other, instead of one of the above

Hopefully these changes are sufficient enough that someone can grab the tag. Good luck!

The bridge supporting structure is in the shape of an arch, or arches.

Just google "arch bridge" for some pictures and a definition.
