Fans of architecture and politicians will recognize it immediately.

Criminals,too.

I mean, even the non-politician ones.

Bike tag

This thread is moving fast! I have a good one, I think, but I have to catch another one of these tags first.

I so had this tag, but just spent the last 30 minutes trying to get a flicker account and then learning how to post a photos. As this game accelerates, us technological neophytes will be left behind…..! Oh well, I can still play vicariously!

Here’s a POST from before that tells how to post images, plus you can POST “test images” there too if you like to post your posting skills.

I heard you liked posting so I posted about posting so you could post while you post

Bike tag

A section of park was razed to eradicate oak wilt right above here.

rsprake, your pictures are gorgeous!

Wow, I am surprised that this tag lasted this long. You guys can ride these trails with the skinny tires without much issue.

Yeah maybe, but just now it’s too Frikin’ Dark out there.


rsprake

#

Heh.

It’s not too dark to go here, it’s just too dark to get the picture.

You can verify photo time & location EXIF metadata if it isn’t stripped by posting the jpg thru a service (& if you have gps enabled on your device).

Or… you could take a really bright light.


rsprake

If one wanted to cheat, one could find my photo on Flickr and see exactly where it is. :)


Lyle
Participant
#

I’ll have to try turning on the gps and seeing how that exif works.


dwillen
Participant
#

I checked the EXIF on your flickr page, rsprake, and it did not contain GPS coordinates.

I’ve been watching these tags and thinking, when am I going to have time to grab one of these. It turns out the time is now.

Where the trees are gone, the moon is bright.

Under the trees, a little flash, long exposure, some flashlight, no tripod, terrible photo

That’s one of my favorite benches in Frick Park.

Before I realized I needed the sleep (perhaps the same moment I saw you got the tag…) I was about to take candles and a tripod and play with some long exposures to get this tag. Kudos. I hope there’s a tag left late tomorrow or the next day…

I can’t wait to dip an oar or pedal or tag in here, this is a great goad to get out and explore. May this thread prosper.

This is a great idea! Very cool.

Nate, don’t forget to give Jupiter credit for some of that light! He’s been on a real bright streak lately.

Hey, rsprake what kind of camera are you using?, that stuff is just luscious.


Lyle
Participant
#

He’s got the contrast and color sat turned way up. You can do that with most cameras (but not phones, I guess), if that’s to your taste.

I don’t know why camera phones don’t have any kind of lens covers. Mine always gets covered with schmutz.


rsprake
Participant
#

It’s an iPhone 4. The light was bad in both of those so I boosted the contrast and saturation.


Nate
Participant
#

There’s a certain timing element here. I highly recommend picking up this tag between 5 and 7 pm, when that door is open.


sloaps
Participant
#

HA! you go to the street view of this place and the door is open, there’s a bike outside leaning against the wall, and another secured to a roof rack.

XD

So this morning when Nate told me the photo he planned to post, and what he was going to write, I said, “You’ll need to say more than that. Nobody’s going to know where that is.”

Ha! Shows what I know.


dwillen
Participant
#

I knew where it was before I even scrolled down to see what he wrote. Not sure that is a good thing :-)


Lyle
Participant
#

I would not have recognized it without the text. I wish he’d posted it before I left home though. No way I’m going to be able to pick that up before someone else nabs it tonight.


rsprake
Participant
#

Sweet bike Nate. I know where it is, but I would imagine it will be gone by the time I can get over there.


Nate
Participant
#

I waited to post it in order to thwart you, Lyle.

note the open door, yet no growler brought home for me…


dwillen
Participant
#

My problem is that I finish the growler at home… I need to remember to bring the empty ones to work with me in the morning.


quizbot
Participant
#

I’m surprised that the tag hung around all day. Just wait till you see the next one.


StuInMcCandless
Participant
#

Could someone post a pic of the tag? I think my chances of picking up one of these is about zero, but it would be helpful to know what I’m looking for.

Or is it a virtual tag? Am I missing something here?


Lyle
Participant
#

The pic IS the tag. That’s it.


dwillen
Participant
#

Though currently, there is no tag.. quizbot will post that soon.
