So Much to See (8/10/2008)
Because of the hot weather and other reasons too boring to mention, I've relied mostly on old pictures for the last few weeks.But today I was back out again. As is often the case, I hadn't a clue as to what I should photograph, or even where I should start.Wondering around ------ ------- I saw a building that I knew had a history, a nice stone exterior. As you may have noticed I like stone buildings, statues, and whatever. Some parts where old, and others obviously newer. It was located right under everyone's nose, but something you drive by everyday and don't notice.
A couple of other interesting twists revealed themselves. and I though I'd found it.As I started taking pictures, I looked for features that would be unique, yet hard to place. And I found quite a few.But...I was almost finished when I saw it. Tucked back in an isolated spot. I'd seen it before. Didn't know what it was back then and still don't.Perhaps you will. The "rules":
I'll post part of a complete picture of some place or thing here in Lawrence (or the greater Lawrence area). Each day (or so) I'll add a larger or different part of the complete picture.Your assignment, should you choose to accept it, is to identify the subject of the picture.Discuss your guesses all you like but only one "final" guess per person. Please declare your guess as final when you're ready. The first person who correctly identifies the subject and location will be recognized and receive all the accompanying fame and rewards--and I'll contact them to let them know that they've "won".Everyone else will have to wait an interminable period (a day or two), to find out for the subject.
Yes. I'm experimenting with a slightly different format. The pictures are at the beginning. And each new image will be inserted at the top, since that's the one you are most interested in.
