Picture Game

I had a thought today. Since there are some of us that like to take pictures (and ya'll post some awesome pics,btw)when we go for a ride,I thought it be neat to make a game out of it. Kinda like a treasure hunt type of thing. Pick something to take a picture of,find it and post it. Whoever posts up the last finding gets to pick what the next item will be. Stuff like covered bridges,waterfalls,cool old abandoned buildings...stuff like that.

What do y'all think? Wanna go for it? Let's kick it off with something easy. Any ideas???

Easiest around here, would be abandoned buildings.

Sometimes, out in the middle of nowhere, there will be an old foundation or house falling into itself,
and one wonders, what kind of life was it?
 
 Someone had the vision, and gumption,  to build a life
on that site.  What happened?  Was a family raised?  Did that store make a living for it's owner?
How many worked in that old factory all their life, only to see it close.

I know, it's weird, but's that's the stuff that goes thru the head sometimes............


Idunno, bad buildings, or maybe great bikinis in use?

This is a rather common game on forums. Has to be some sort of marker to prove its a specific-for-that shot. Such as glove on handlebar, helmet on seat, etc.

I think we totally should. How about... bike with a weed of some sort?
Turbos, Hondas, 4-bangers, what could go wrong?

Lucky, we'll just pick somewhat generic items to look for. For example an abandoned building would do, it doesn't have to be Mr Brown's old store on Elm street, just whatever's in your area.


Alright Craig. Bike with a weed of some sort. Anything in particular in mind, or will any old weed do?

I already do this on another forum...they have a photo scavenger hunt. Post a pic of your bike in front of the mark (target, etc) and call the next mark. They have a 7 day limit, so if no one posts a pic of their bike in front of the target, the person who called the last mark calls a new one. It's fun and gives me an excuse to ride. (though the people in the midwest tend to not like it when you call things like yachts and drawbridges, but then again, I can't take a pic of my bike in front of a mountain without a 7-10 hour ride!)

Ah,I didn't even know they had that going on over there. It's OK,we can do it better.

Let's say no time limits on the marks for now. Rules are no fun,relaxed is where it's it.

But for posterity,let's go ahead and say the bike needs to be in the shot,or like Craig said,at least your handlebar. Definitely not your car,truck,bicycle or whatever. The game is all about the ride.

So who's going for the weed shop...err,shot?

I wanted to start one up where instead of some random mark, you take a pic of your bike in front of something important to YOU, like a local landmark, your favorite watering hole...etc. That way, we also get to learn about where you live instead of just seeing your bike in front of a cow.

I like that idea Mark. Lets get that one started too. A show us where you rode today thread. I'm up in NH by Laconia so, we have ALL sorts of cool sites around and the bikes run (at least mine does haha) from like February to November easy. Though I was riding in December last year too. BRRRRRRRRRRR

Alright then,so would y'all be interested in figuring out how to combine the two ideas,or just start a different thread? I suppose we could use Mark's idea and modify it into a game of "Horse". For example,if there is a cool old hardware store you want to post up,do it,than have the next guy find a similar location? Just throwing out ideas.

And just like you mentioned Mark,the whole idea of this was to get people to post pics of the various different locations that we all live in. I'd love to see that.

Oye, you stoners. I got weed because my yard is full of dandelions.

Not the stuff in my desk! That'd be just too simple then, even I could compete!

Interesting idea for the HORSE thing. And yes, the bike needs to be in it. I suppose the Shiny guy's Harley will have to be allowed in this though. Just no "HARLEY!" for 'H'.

It's not that interesting anyways.

If there is no time limit, how do we know when it is time to move on to the next picture?

Or should we just have a new topic every week, but have no time limit on when you can post pics for past topics?

Whoever posts last would choose the next topic. If someone chooses something funky (like a unicorn) then it may take a while to find one.

The idea was to be creative and just go riding. Let say someone chooses a pig as the next mark. You might not have a hog farm around you, but I bet any one of us could find a BBQ sign with a pig on it.

Exactly the idea. To be creative and go "hey, that'd work!" for the game.

I'm jealous. I wanna have the bike running dog nabbit!
