As decided by vote, here's the next challenge, proposed by Mary:

Write a scene in which the point-of-view character reveals specialized knowledge by what he describes of what he sees, WITHOUT revealing the reason why. (A building contractor notices the concrete, a historian dates the statues both when they were made and what era they were faking, etc. But you aren't told about being a contractor, historian, etc.)

Go onward and write! Then post your story here as an answer, and get feedback in the comments. If you ask a main site question while writing for this challenge, leave a comment below this question or mention it in your answer.
