Good guess!

For those of you who were speculating, the beastie on the pie is a pig - not a turtle (there might be a turtle appearance later this week though). The pie was one I made for an apple pie competition back when I lived in Chicago. It was a pork and apple pie with the bottom being apple then a layer of applewood smoked bacon and then apple cider braised pork shoulder. Oh, and EatNopales was correct, the pie crust was made with lard - according to my mom's recipe. I have yet to meet the crust that can equal what I can produce with that recipe.

The second image is of Headhouse Square which is a couple of blocks from where I live in Society Hill (a neighborhood in center city Philadelphia) and the location of a farmers market that takes place every Sunday May through December. I procure most of my fruit from there during the summer as well as some vegetables, milk and other tasty things.

The final image is of the antique handcranked meat slicer that I restored a few years back. I'm planning on starting a charcuterie project this week but I don't know if I will have an opportunity to show the slicer in action.

Looks more like a standard subway train to me. Bullet train seems to have much smaller windows.

kayb, I'll take a punt myself and guess.. the wonderful Helen. It does look like a Narita-direction train.

I'm pretty sure that the sign says Platform 2 in English only which makes me think that it is not Japan.

The writing behind the sign that identifies the station seems to be in english as well - looks sort of like university or something starting with V.

I agree, that's a BART train which means it's someone in San Francisco...

Is that a watermark at the bottom of the first photo? You can make out a "CH" starting in the yellow area, maybe...

Howdy everyone, really looking forward to this!

The watermark is from when I spent some time as a photographer a (now out of business) company in the Bay Area a long time ago out of high school. I did a quick photoshop it to remove and didn't think you guys would catch it! It would have given away the location right away.

Expect a lot of photos starting Sunday.
