Quiz #6

My cousin Adam has recently been sending out photo rebuses that he's created from web searches. I had so much fun with them I thought I'd share. Below are two of his and three that I came up with, the solution to one of which is photography related.

The first person to correctly identify all 5 wins a free print. (Freudus, you only need identify 4 out of 5).

hmm, tough one. I've got one of them, but the rest are baffling. thanks for the head-start though...

Well, I can get 4 out of 5, which isn't that impressive considering I made two of them up. But I was wondering:

1)Are cousin/puzzle creators disqualified from winning free prints?

2)Is the photography related one something that I will have heard before or is it some sort of esoteric trivia or technical jargon?

Adam, since no one else has solved this I'll declare you the winner if you can answer 4 out of 5.

I doubt you'll know the photography related one. It may be oscure even for photographers. But I liked the symmetry of the clue so I had to include it.

1)Hub Bull Spay Stella Scope
Hubble Space Telescope

2) Sum Wear Over Thee(?) Rain Bow
Somewhere Over the Rainbow

3)Blue/Sky Pippy Blue/Sky
Famous photographer Skip Pipiski?

4) Straw Bury Rue Barb Pi

5) Bar Rock Hu "Say No" Bama

I love Hu "Say No" Bama, perhaps my favorite part of a pictogram yet.

Congratulations, Adam on solving 4 out of 5. The other one, photography related, is Blue Sky Gallery (Blue sky - Gal - Airy). I'll get your print out to you in a few days. Is the Lincoln St. address current?

Yep, that's a current address. I look forward to it, I suspect it will fit nicely into my "eclectic", haphazard approach to decorating my apartment.
