Pretentious? Moi?

By c_evans99  
Doesn't everyone listen to jazz, read books about minimalist composers and have a painting by Max Ernst as a desktop? Well I don't, well not all the time, honest. Smile

Every few months some friends and I play a game of online 'Through the keyhole'. We take photographs of our homes with hints who we are and as here red herrings... one of us does keep on about jazz, surrealism and minimalism; there is however a clue... if you cross-reference the O/S map number (not awfully clear at this size) it comes back to Gower where I'm from.

The pictures are passed to a referee who releases one person's pics a day with the immortal phrase 'who lives in a house like this?'... it's a real hassle in my flat to take a photograph that doesn't give the game away by including a vintage camera Smile

You bought a computer from TINY!!!

Now you have my undying sympathy, well I suppose they must have had some customers - just I've never known any before.

Personally I'd have put some tape over the name so no-one would know this shameful secret.

Well that's OK then, but I'd still have hid the label!

Sounds like fun, but I'm not sure. Is it supposed to be yours or are you supposed to fake what you think someone elses place might look like as suggested by Boozi

I haven't really thought that part through yet... I usually play this with nonphotographers Smile

One of the pics at least should include a clue but you can add red herrings based on what another player photographs or their forum posts, or even throw something in that other players don't know about you.
