I was so close! Just missing the bridge, and missed daylight yesterday to get one.

For fun, here's a train station with a clock on the tower...

Hated to do that, Atomicalex. But, well, you know, I just HAD to.

Hope you stay in the game.

NP! This is fun. I hardly ever stop to take pics, so this is good excuse for me to do so.

Good deal.

I love seeing pictures of places that I'll likely not get the chance to get to.

Grab!
1) a vehicle made in a country other than where my feet are now standing


2) view from the top level of a multi level parking structure


3) a view from somewhere beneath ground level


4) something on a pole or suspended in the air that's not normally there used as advertising[I don't know if you consider the plane as advertising(you are definitely more apt to notice the airport because it's there, however) so I'll await a ruling from you, wb]


5) a field with more than one type of animal in it

Emus, longhorn steer, buffalo


highland cattle, reindeer and various others

02TAC, everything is good except the columns. The columns you have pictured are not Ionic or Corinthian, but Doric. The capitals of Ionic and Corinthian columns are considerably different. The columns themselves should be fluted, as well.
I'll pull my grab. Maybe someone else will give it a try.

Let's try this grab thing again

1) an Art Museum or Natural History Museum



2) a Synagogue or Mosque





3) a Glider or Helicopter



4) a Winery or Distillery



5) a building with Ionic or Corinthian columns
-- If my research is correct, these are considered plain (non fluted) ionic columns.

Way to go!!! Those are some nice looking Ionic columns.

I'm glad you kept after it and got the grab 02TAC.

Yeah, you're right, flutes are very common on both Ionic and Corinthian columns, but not essential. The primary distinguishing feature is the capital.

Next 5

1 - A Roadside Oddity - lots of leeway on this one, but look for something truly odd.

2 - A train car with graffiti - if you get busted "installing" the graffiti, post pics of the event!

3 - A local bakery - nothing commercial.

4 - A Distillery

5 - A Brewery

If any of these cannot be found within a reasonable riding distance (100-150 miles) of any riders, let me know and I will amend the list.
