Blockin' Out the Scenery, Breakin' My Mind

Gauntlet thrown down, picked up, and thrown down again, it's my turn to keep the ball rolling in the picture stalking competition (it's a friendly competition; what would you expect from Canadians?).

I can't fight this feeling (anymore? no, no. NO.) that I perhaps have a photographic memory. This one was easy, since I'd mocked it several times in the past. Granted, this sign is right on my drive home, which I suspect Steph knew when she took captured this little marketing gem:

Unfortunately, I had to take the picture from a moving car as I rideshared my commute home this week, so I didn't get much of a chance to get inventive with the shot (then again, perhaps the sign itself cannot be improved upon?).

And though I'd never seen the following particular sign, I knew from the challenge picture that it wasn't about "Sagittarius" at all, but about the context. A glance at the GARAGE EXIT sign immediately triggered something in my brain. Yes, yes, that is the very building I work in (note: the first picture and the second picture are 13km apart, making me wonder if I was followed home from work one day). Perhaps the only way to one-up Steph is for me to produce a picture that she is actually part of, unbeknownst to her. Hmm... I'm treading the line between inventive and creepy, aren't I? Fair enough.

Regardless, this should fulfill the requirements of the challenge:

Stay tuned... new challenge coming soon.

I can't even find matching socks in my sock drawer. This picture scavenger hunt is well beyond my search abilities. Color me quite impressed.

Ok, so that TLW doesn't think I've started stalking your family, lemme 'splain how I got the photos.

Four Sale: I noticed it earlier in the summer while on my way to the bike shop in B'ford, but didn't have time to snap a photo; I waited until the day of my company golf tournie when I begged my coworker to pull over so I could snap the photo.

Sagittarius: It's not that far from the ferry terminal... and may, or may not, be on my walk home.

I do, however, hope to someday obtain a collection of true stalker photo - The back of your head as you walk into your office building... your profile as you drive by... the palm of your hand as you push me away...

(Ok, that last one creeped me out, but I'm a ho for comedic effect - what can I say?)

I totally think this picture stalking game needs to go the next level. As in paparazzi style ninja photography. Go.
