Yes, that's the lighthouse in Tahiti built in 1867 by the father of Robert Lewis Stevenson. I'm curious qumax if you recognized it or Googled it somehow?

You're up.

I googled lighthouses, black and white lighthouses, European lighthouses, Asian lighthouses, South American lighthouses, Caribbean lighthouses, lighthouse architecture, etc. I got tired and fed up and quit before I got to the Pacific.

It's a picture I took myself so I knew there would not be an exact match, but I thought the foliage may have been a hint. We have taken lots of lighthouse pictures, but this is our favorite, as it's so unusual.

You should have googled square lighthouses. I had found it in about 2
minutes.

I'll have to think of something to post.

I thought it would have been unfair to Google.

Why would that be?

Internet searches are integral to the game.

Excerpt from from the first post (does not preclude google):

Rules:
1: The poster of the picture must know what or where it is !
2: The one who gets it right gets to put the next photo up.
3: You Must put weather you are wanting the where or the what it is.
4: Poster is right because of rule number one !
5: You can ask for clues !

Apparently not Z, but I thought so too. Looking over this "years old" thread it seems at one time it was more of a guessing game by asking questions of the poster rather than a race to Google for an answer. Some of the ancient posts were really a fun read, check them out.

Yes, this is a years old thread, but that just goes to show you it is a popular and good one!

By the way, my guess was the tower where Rapunzel was kept captive, See her hair hanging down there?
