The point of the Bicycle Photo Tag is to reproduce a similar photo of an object or place that can be found in many different locations around the world. Much like a scavenger hunt, examples include specific street signs, a railway crossing with train, yourself at a toll booth with reciept, etc.... Get creative

Rules are easy...

1. Find a SIMILAR (ie; Not The Same, Different) tag and reproduce the photo (as best as possible). Take the tag to a new location, get the photo and post it here.
2. Upon posting your new tag, the tagger is responsible for specifying what it is in the photo that must be reproduced. Be specific, but not so specific that no one else will be able to play because we couldn't find another pink school bus.
* Try to place the tags in interesting locations, objects or places that could probably be found in at least the majority of the planet.
3. Tag must be: Common amongst all human habitation. Dirt is ok, but remember most of us are on street bikes. We don't want to exclude those who don't like to get dirty (wimps).
4. The first person to post a found tag gets to place the next tag. If you get a tag, but somebody else posts their picture first, you lose (bruced).
5. One tag at a time within thread. File photos are NOT permitted. You gotta ride to play this game.
6. No whining There are plenty of folks here that will help you understand the rules
7. The holder of the tag determines if the tag has been duplicated and acknowledges it by posting on the thread. (Surrendering the Tag)
8. No Pre-Arranged Tag Handoffs / Linear Tag sequence
9. Last but not least, should the tag be soo ridiculous that no one is able to reproduce it, it can be voted down if a majority of the active participants feel necessary.



Remember, the point of this is not to win the game, or get a better picture than the guy who just "bruced" you, the point is the ride. On that note, if someone tags a post office. Rather than get out and ride a block to my local post office, I might ride an hour or so, out to the historic post office a few neighborhoods over.... Make it interesting.

So the first tag is your bike in front of a house with Xmas lights

OLD TAG: An animal shelter

New Tag: A Sculpture on the Boulevard! This one is easy, there is a guide here to where all of the pieces of art are: http://www.cityofchicago.org/city/en/depts/mayor/press_room/press_r... Catch em All! 

This one was at 25th and California, so it might be "Kara James, Handmade Revolution, at 25th St."

Well done, T.K. On to the next tag...

Please forgive me, I just don't want to do it wrong.  Is the tag "a sculpture" ?  The "on the boulevard" is the part I don't understand.

It has to be both a sculpture and on a boulevard, specifically a part of the city's "Sculptures on the Boulevards" program. The link I provided shows you almost exactly where all of the other sculptures are.

Here it is again: http://www.cityofchicago.org/city/en/depts/mayor/press_room/press_r...

Ok, thanks

 

Great ride today!  Thanks for the great pics!

Wow, good to know about this.  We should have a separate/new challenge around photographing your bike with as many of these as possible, or trying to complete all of them between us.

How long will they stay?

Here's a Sculpture on Lake Shore Drive, which is a BLVD.

I think its part  the sculpture group you were talking about.

And here's the new tag, in honor of the natives that helped with Thanksgiving, your Bike next to an image or statue of an American Indian.

Nice!
But what if it's 1/18th Indian?
Submit 1....plus 17 more

Some great riding weather for December!
