@ornoth thanks for the street correction.

I can see the picture but also the location of the picture on a map… It pulls it straight into my Google photos on my Android and if I tap once on the picture it shows me all the exif data…. Date/time taken, Samsung phone, Camera settings, location (both coordinates and on map)

In the future strip out the exif data if you’re not using imgur. Imgur autostrips the data.

This is a decent exif stripper

@eric  thanks for the info.  I didn’t even think about the data file on the picture.  Might go back to imgur if I can find why it is taking 2 days to upload a file.

I don’t use it, but people seem to have good luck with Flickr. It autostrips the exif data. I use my own website to host the photos I post on tag o Rama. Not ideal. And when I don’t renew my website in the future the photos go bye bye.

I use Flickr and like it. You do need to do some extra steps but once you’ve figured it out it’s pretty smooth. And it lets you pick a resolution and stuff.

Sorry, I was trying different photo upload methods and thought I could delete a post afterwards.  Now I can’t find a spot to delete the post

you can’t delete posts. It’s one of the fine features of this message board.

And even with the location in the exif data, I ain’t climbing all the way up there to snag the tag. Maybe @stu can grab it on his way into town one day on a bike. he comes in that way.

I’ll pick this one up over the weekend if someone doesn’t ride up there and get it first. Hint: East St is a pretty easy climb, easier than for me to bike down Perry/Perrysville six miles.

On picking up the Barber Lounge tag…
I went up Baytree instead of East. It’s a pleasant climb up a residential street. There’s traffic, but much less than on East. Check it out if you haven’t up to now.

Also…
Any idea what the Daughters were thinking when they proscribed “other pets”?

The weather hasn’t been so good. But not to worry. This area hasn’t seen a flood for a good long time.

I wasn’t gonna jump on this, but it’s been a week…

Fort Pitt block house @ the point


Location: 40.441216, -80.009637
Nearest intersection: I- 279 & I- 376

It took some effort, but with this tag I’ve achieved the goal of breaking into Tag-o-Rama’s top ten participants by count of tags claimed. Ta-dah!

Here’s a new tag, placed in honor of my taking over tenth position amongst T-o-R players.

Whoa! Tell me about your fenders! I’ve never seen those before. Do they work well?

The fender is DeFender XC1. I’ve had it for 3 yrs, moderate use (I’m not a hardcore mtn biker). They were slipping down the fork shafts over time until we put zip tie below them. I’m happy with it.

From the park you hear the happy sound of the carousel
You can almost taste the hot dogs and french fries they sell, yes you can
Under the Boulevard, down by the sea, yeah
On a blanket with my baby is where I’ll be

fyi, you need to click the ‘share’ icon then cut’n’paste the BBCode version of the url (which you then need to edit to get rid of the Flickr branding crap). It’s a pain but I (as we all) are hoping Flickr will stay in business under their new owner SmugMug (a paid photog storage service). Whatever. We should accept that we are but ants living in this age of collosi striding across the increasingly arid plain of the interwebs…

Thanks ahlir. I was sort of annoyed, because it works better from the phone than the laptop, right now.

FYI, ahlir is just reposting the photo. He didn’t pick it up.

If this is where I think it is, StreetView shows a blank wall. I drove past the spot on Saturday and it isn’t blank.

Two other options for Flickr users:

From the photo page, click Download and View All Sizes. From there you can select an image size and Right-Click to Copy Image Url, which can be pasted into an IMG tag or in the Url prompt on the editor’s IMG button. The Medium 500 size is best for this page; then I always make that image a link to the Url of the Original image size.

Or you can use my tool, located here. You have to enter your username from your Flickr Url (for jona, that’d be 11288822@N00, since he hasn’t set a custom username). With that, it’ll give you text code that you can just copy and paste into this editor for a thumbnail and link to your most recently-uploaded Flickr image. If the image has GPS data, the text will also include lat/long coordinates and the nearest street intersection. I find it really helpful when claiming tags in the field.

I should probably update it to use cookies to remember your username between sessions. Will look into that shortly.

Ross, at 2nd, at under the Blvd of the Allies.

It’s printed on fabric and attached to the wall (as opposed to being a mural).

I didn’t find it, but I did ride all the way into town and rode around a good bit, looking for it, on my way in to work this morning. And that’s the whole point of the game, right?

I have a good sense where it is but not the exact locale. I’m guessing the cultural district by the bricks and the fact that there are funky bike racks installed by the Pgh Cultural Trust throughout the cultural district. And it looks like there’s a bike lane on one side of the street, so it isn’t Penn Ave. I also won’t have a chance to look for it until probably Saturday, if then, so maybe someone else can pick it up.

Bollard.

Apologies that this seems obscure. But the pics should have all the information a habitual biker would need. There’s really only one (well traveled) street downtown that could fit. @Eric mostly has it right.
Consider the street markings; all the lines are white. They’re spaced oddly. And for some reason the bus is in the middle lane (where it belongs). No climbing required.

Any idea when this was used last as a Wonder/Hostess outlet? I’m fascinating by this place. It’s so derelict but the sign still has non faded colors.

Just like the bread, really. I bet if you went inside you’d find a loaf or two that’s just as fresh as the day it was baked.

Darn. I checked the entire length of Penn one morning, even getting off at corners to walk around the parked cars, looking for this specific rack. All the way from Stanwix to the Convention Center. And somehow missed this. Oh well, I’m breaking the whining rule.

As to the Wonder location, I’m thinking it was still operating as of 2005, maybe even 2008. My biking adventures through the city commenced around 2007, and my weekly food rescue runs had me traveling near this part of town often. Port Authority’s Manchester facility is across the street from here, so I’d go past here as often as I could to see what interesting thing might be parked there (a wrecked bus under repair, experimental equipment here for evaluation, etc.).

Anyway, I’m still in this game. Two for two on identifying a location.

New tag tomorrow morning I promise.
