Nice! My first guess resulted in my first pic. Here you go!


Been about a month with no guesses yet ... maybe a clue is in order?


Not taking a guess, but a clue could be that it's quite a high bridge?

Could it be the Kap Shui Man Bridge, also in Hong Kong?  (The bridge just west of JayhawkCO's guess of the Tsing Ma bridge?)

Unless there are 2 Shenzhen bay bridges, I don’t think so.

Does the poster of the photo have any hints?

My bridge is still in play.

And your bridge is the old Cooper River Bridge in Charleston, SC.

The multiple "101" and "tall building" references make me think it’s somewhere in Taiwan because the tallest building in Taiwan is called Taipei 101.

Edited to add: The Chongyang Bridge in Taipei seen from the next bridge nearby (you’ll have to click into Street View since the Google Maps app isn’t letting me get a Street View link):

Nailed it! It is indeed the Chongyang Bridge.

I probably would've had to give out the country on the next hint  :-D :-D

I don’t have any good bridge pictures ready to post right now, so I’ll pass my turn to someone else if anyone wants to go next.

Edited to add: My earlier attempts at solving that one had focused on border crossings where traffic switches sides of the road, based on your earlier hint about driving on the right.

Well, back in November I guessed this bridge ...

Since it’s been a few days, and since Steve expressed difficulty in finding pictures to enter, I’ll post one. I travelled over this bridge in 1981, but I didn’t take this picture.



Is it the former Waldo-Hancock Bridge in Maine, since replaced by the Penobscot Narrows Bridge?

... and the bridge webny99 posted looks like the bridge that replaced it - is it the Penobscot Narrows Bridge?
(if I am correct, it would be the bridge in the background of the picture of the Waldo-Hancock bridge that 1995hoo posted)

^Yes, you are correct! I must have missed the previous entry back in November, but I figured this wouldn't be too hard regardless.

The new bridge has an observatory that looked like it was worth a stop. Unfortunately we crossed early in the morning and it wasn't open. But if I ever get back to that part of Maine, I'd certainly plan a stop there.
