Something’s been missing around here at We took a break for a few months, but I’m feeling camera-happy now that the seasons have changed and I think it’s again time to bring back our weekly mystery photo contest. We have a new mystery photo for this week that I think might stump you. Can you guess where in Barrington we took this picture?

If you’ve been in Barrington a while, I guarantee you’ve been standing in the same spot where I was when I took this picture at some point. It’s a little detail that might have caught your eye and I’m putting you to the test.

Just in case you could use a little clue, here you go:

In line for lunch – but NOT at the San Diego Zoo. 😉

If you can guess where in Barrington we took this week’s mystery photo, you’ll have a chance to win a prize linked to the place where the picture was taken.

The contest rules are simple and entering is just as easy. Read on to find out how.

But first, thank you to all of you who entered our last mystery photo contest. We just drew a winner from all of you who correctly guessed where in Barrington this picture was taken…

All of our guessers were correct. Photographer, Julie Linnekin, snapped the love-themed typewriter image while looking at the storefront outside Re.De.Find at 115 E. Station Street in Barrington just before Valentine’s Day. Re.De.Find carries vintage and vintage-inspired clothing and accessories, hand-picked by shop owner, Laura Knecht, for every season.

Lynn Cushwa!

Congratulations, Lynne. I will email you this week to make arrangements to get you your prize from Re.De.Find.
