LA Zoo

Friday, 17th March 2006 by

Los Angeles Zoo is located in Griffith Park and is home to more than a thousand animal species from around the world. In the centre of the shot you can make out the shadows of a pair of giraffes, which is pretty awesome. There are lots of other enclosures and cages in the shot but I can’t make out any other animals. Can you? Thanks: Matt Waggoner

Le Circuit de Reims-Gueux

First used in 1926, le Circuit de Reims-Gueux was a French Formula One and sports car racing circuit built on the public roads between the villages of Gueux and Thillois. The circuit hosted its first French Grand Prix in 1932 and continued to hold the event until 1966. The track closed for good in 1972, but the roads are still in place, and many traces of the old circuit can still be found, including the pit stalls, paddock, and spectator bleachers.
