Update (Thursday, 9:47 p.m. PDT): Today's picture produced a lot of different answers, most of which had some of the right information. But only a few people were able to identify all the relevant elements. Still, I decided to be lenient today and mark you correct if you got at least one of the crucial parts. So, today's answer--which 96 people got all or part of--is a view looking north on 10th Street NW, in Washington, D.C. toward Pennsylvania Avenue. On the right is the U.S. Department of Justice building. On the left is the U.S. Internal Revenue Service building. And across the street on the right is the J. Edgar Hoover FBI building. Thanks to everyone who played today, and to everyone, please come back for Friday's challenge.

This may look like the usual calm and quiet street, but this is far from it. If you know what this is and where it's located, you could win a prize in the CNET Road Trip Picture of the Day challenge.

If you have those answers, please e-mail them to me no later than 6 p.m. PDT Thursday (to daniel--dot--terdiman--at--cnet--dot--com, and PLEASE include "Picture of the Day" in the subject line). I'll choose a winner at random from among everyone who sends in both pieces of the correct answer. Please forgive me if you don't hear from me if you're not the winner. I get dozens of responses each day.

Also, I've turned off comments because some people have been posting the correct answers there. I hate to shut down discussion, but I want you to figure out the answer on your own.

One caveat: No individual can win more than two prizes. But at the end of the trip, I'll draw a name from among all the daily challenge winners and give out something a little more substantial.

On June 24, Geek Gestalt kicked off Road Trip 2010. After driving more than 18,000 miles in the Rocky Mountains, the Pacific Northwest, the Southwest, and the Southeast over the last four years, I'm looking for the best in technology, science, military, nature, aviation, and more throughout the American northeast. If you have a suggestion for someplace to visit, drop me a line. In the meantime, you can follow my journey on Twitter @GreeterDan and @RoadTrip and find the project on Facebook.
