I have the feeling that either the shadows or the building on the right with the big banner should be clues, but I have no idea Smile

Couldn't be the Mississippi, at least not what I've seen of it; the Mississip is much wider.

Given the shed hubcap and skid marks on the almost non-existent shoulder, plus the narrow river, I'll say Fort Worth Smile

Maybe that was too difficult due to the view being too narrow. I'll maybe try another on later. Here's where this one is...

DAMN IT!!! I was really going to guess that -- promise. It's because it's call the "Three Rivers City" and I was trying to think of cities known for their rivers.

Shit! Smile

Looks a wee bit like Sausalito, with Mt. Tam in the background.

nup no idea..... too many options
