Please tag all submissions with guesswherechicago and chicago unguessed. After your photo is guessed, change the latter tag to chicago guessed! Photos with identified locations will be removed without comment.

Group Description

You think you know Chicago? Let's find out. Post your enigmatic shots of the Windy City. Everyone else tries to guess where it is.
Any shot is fair game as long as it's of a public place and inside the city limits or is accessible by el (eg Evanston, Oak Park).

The key here is that photos are meant to be guessed. Please omit any location information from the tags, title or description. That means that pictures where you can see a street sign aren't good for the pool. Don't put photos on the map until they are guessed.
Please avoid recognizable shots of iconic monuments. Pictures of the Water Tower, the Bean, the Picasso or the Chicago Theater marquee will be removed without comment.

Please tag your photos with chicagounguessed. Change it to chicagoguessed after someone gets it right.

Group Rules

This pool is only for photos taken in Chicago or suburbs accessible via the El.
This pool is not for photos of iconic locations, or unguessable photographs. That means no pictures of the Chicago Theater marquee, the Bean, an Art Institute lion, or the Picasso. Go explore the city.

All photos must use the group tags.
All photos should be tagged guesswherechicago.
All photos should be tagged either chicagounguessed or chicagounguessed.

No photos should have information that identifies the location in the title, tags, other group postings, or in the photo itself. Photos work best when they are of something somewhat permanent; graffiti and street performers have a way of disappearing or being in several locations.

Posters must respond to guesses on their posts in a timely fashion.
