There’s a pretty big clue in this photo by City Paper photographer Ruta Smith about the city where the picture was taken. But where is it specifically and what is it? We’ll forward some City Paper swag to the 10th person who correctly 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 , “Big butterfly,” was a piece of art at Riverfront Park in North Charleston, as many readers correctly guessed. Hats off to veterinarian Patti Sura of Charleston for being the fifth person to correctly guess. We’re sending you a little swag (but we need your address). Congrats!

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!
