OK, let's give this one a try. Please forgive the image quality -- it was taken at dusk and cropped from a small section of a cell phone photo. If no one recognizes it, I'll post a version that is zoomed out a bit more.

Dan cheers

That is hauntingly familiar - I know I've been there but can't quite place it. The buildings look European but the water tower is uniquely American... Annapolis, MD?

That's what I was thinking, either Annapolis or Baltimore.

Exactly. Shot from Liberty State Park in Jersey City.

Here's a brighter photo taken from a short distance away.

That was a good one - the original picture had enough hints that it should have been recognizable smile

Here's my next offering, what city is this in?

Hard to see but the writing on the building looks like something in an Asian language. Possibly Japanese or Chinese. I think there's a tower like that in Tokyo but don't think that's this one.

Tokyo Tower is a replica of the Eiffel Tower (just made a couple of feet higher than the original) but this city is closer to Tokyo than it is to Paris smile

The language puzzled me - English on the tower and possibly characters on the building (or was that something you obscured?). Then there's the palm tree so I'll try Okinawa?
Don't know a city name.

Sleepychef - you have it. It is indeed the city of Kobé, where I grew up and spent my youth smile The first picture is Kobe Tower, the second is monument to the Hanshin Earthquake 1995 in which I lost a number of my school classmates.

sorry to hear about your classmates, I remember it due to how fast they sorted their roads.

View is from standing on a famous bridge

I was going to say Mostar but if it is Switzerland then I've no idea. The only 'famous' bridge I can think of is Luzerne and the photo is definitely not from that bridge.

OK, had to Google. Lavertezzo double arch bridge? Apparently while people don't jump from the actual bridge they do jump from the rocks under it. Beautiful spot but jumping is not for me. yikes

If correct someone else go ahead and post the next photo please.
