The contest that never was

I was going to post this photo, taken last Sunday, as a "guess which village near Preuilly this is" contest, with the usual prize of nothing.

Instead, it is a "guess what the fatal flaw in the original contest is" contest.


The prize is, as usual, nothing. Nice photo, though.........

Well, since you can see the sign, you're not technically in that village yet... so guessing where Simon is standing could still work. Unless one had a good map handy.

Oh well! ;)

Luckily, one can't be caught speeding at more than the 50kph limit until one actually passes the village's panneau (or after the relevant village exit sign! (...I assume that the picture was taken through the window of a fast machine...), but maybe taking a ohoto might be deemed a distraction - 3 points?

noy only was the voiture stqtionary, but I was standing in the middle of the road. It's what us old Frenchmen do.

Walt - see above. :)

But you know, it is a great picture! And many people have bad eyes so they would still not be able to tell where it is...
