A holiday weekend puzzle

I thought some of you might like a little puzzle to get the ol’ synapses going after the holiday. This is a photo that I took near my maisonette yesterday morning. Not that that information will help you at all to solve the puzzle….

Here’s the puzzle question:

What is wrong with the photo below?

I encourage guesses as well as confident responses, so don’t be shy. Post your answers as comments and I’ll see who is able to divine/figure out/intuit the correct answer.

The first correct response will receive a prize–a picture postcard of Brittany from yours truly. Chañs vat ! (Good luck!)

I'm a linguist and a writer, with a passion for the Breton language, Celtic languages in general, and endangered language communities who engage in revitalization efforts. I've published some articles about the Breton language situation in some academic journals, and I'm planning to publish more in the near future. I spent most of the last decade moving around--first to Santa Barbara (grad school), then Colorado (teaching), and then Brittany (researching the Breton language revitalization movement and improving my Breton speaking skills)--and now I'm in the San Francisco Bay Area. Even though I am living far from Brittany at this point, I still keep in touch with my friends and colleagues in the Breton-speaking world, and I'm still involved in language revitalization issues.

  1. Yes, that’s right, Britton! I suspected that you might win this.

    You win the prize, so let me know your snail mail address. You can email it to me. I’ll send you a postcard–let me know if you prefer scenic or humorous.
