Trippy Travel Photo 28 is of hedera algeriensis—aka, Algerian Ivy.
Did I know this when I shot the photo? No, absolutely not. And where the heck was I when took it? State Capitol Park, Sacramento, CA., home of the California Legislature since 1869.
The person who won the game is listed below. She followed these steps to win.
1. Look at the Photo/Study the Details
2. Guess whether it’s real or a painting.
Do they look real? If so, why? If not, why not?
Is this a painting? If so, explain why you think so. If not, tell me why.
Bonus points: And if you’re really at the top of your game–he, he–please tell me exactly what you’re looking and and where was I traveling when I saw them. If you can do that, well….wow…you get bonus points! (However, it’s not necessary to do this to win. That, I know, is a very difficult task.)

The Answer: Algerian Ivy (Hedera algeriensis) in Sacramento, CA
Algerian Ivy–aka, Hedera algeriensis–is what you see in the photo. I thought it was beautiful and unique somehow; it resembled a painting–hence, this round of the game (guessing whether it was real or not). As mentioned above, I spotted it when visiting the California State Capitol Park.
Can’t get enough?
