Travel Photos — Where in the World 003

So, one of the blogs I follow<<link is participating in a Travel Challenge where you get nominated “to post one favourite [sic] travel picture a day for ten days without explanation, then to nominate someone else to participate.”

I’m uncomfortable nominating others . . . but I liked the idea of the challenge and decided on a different spin, so this will be a series of photos where readers are invited to guess the location. Each post will feature only one photo, but at least two — and often more — versions of that photo.

All of the photos will be collected in THIS<<link SmugMug Gallery.  Each new post will identify the previous post’s photo. The poll is mostly to amuse me by having fun with the names. I name the location and possibly a red herring or two. It’s fine with me if you look up the answer, and I won’t care much which name you vote for because, hey, you might want to amuse yourself as well.

The previous post<<link had some pretty good guesses where people used deductive reasoning to find the answer. The piece in question is Sphere No. 6 (Sphere within a sphere) by Arnaldo Pomodoro (Italian, b. 1926)<<link. Interestingly, the artist is still alive (94 years old). Also, versions of the sculpture are displayed in a number of places around the world as listed in the Wikipedia entry for the piece (LINK), but the location of my photo is identifiable by the pedestal. That photo was snapped at the Smithsonian Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, in Washington, D. C.

Here we go with the next offering. I’ll offer a hint for this location . . . the hint is:

A young man must complete his work at a Navy Officer Candidate School to become an aviator, with the help of a tough Gunnery Sergeant and his new girlfriend.

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.
