Here’s a great water view, but where is the photographer standing? We’ll forward some City Paper swag to the 5th person who correctly answers the question and identifies this week’s mystery. To enter (one entry per person), send your guess, name and hometown in an email to: mystery@charlestoncitypaper.com.

LAST WEEK’S MYSTERY, “Flags,” showed the American, Irish and South Carolina flags at Charlotte Street Park between the Port of Charleston and Aquarium Wharf downtown. Congratulations to all who correctly identified the mystery and especially to the 12th correct sleuth, Parker Kaufmann, who lives somewhere in the Lowcountry (when y’all enter, you need to include your address so we can send a little swag when you win!)

Every Monday, the City Paper offers a mystery photo taken somewhere in the Lowcountry. We encourage you to guess — and make sure to share your name and the town in which you live. We’ll uncover the mystery the following week and, every now and then, give a prize.

BONUS: If you want to submit a mystery photo taken by you for us to share, send it to our mystery email address. Make sure to put “Submission” in the subject line.

PAST MYSTERIES: While the guessing time on these mysteries is over, you might like seeing some old mystery photos that readers have puzzled over. Enjoy!
