In Plain Sight(??) 9/12/2012

Previous: IPS 6/24/2012

It is amazing I have the nerve to show my face around here, but I saw something worth a post, so it is below.

If you've seen it, and can identify it, you're welcome to do so in the comments. Otherwise I'll do so in a day or so. I was headed back from an auction this weekend and this subject caught my eye.

hujiko quickly identified the subject this week.

This is the 163rd post since since December 20th of 2007. Within the next week or so, I'll post an index of all those photos.

But, in the meantime, I am in dire need of subjects and ideas. I know there are more interesting things out there, but they have become increasingly difficult to find and I need your help.

This means YOU!.

I've added an appeal with ways to contact me below.


This week, I thought it best to just post the complete photo from the start. It may be obvious (or maybe not), but anything less than the entire photo is just an anonymous bunch of flowers.

The burroughs Creek Rail trail, looking south from 15th St.


Suggestions for subjects or ideas are ALWYAYS welcome, you can contact me via my LJW account here. Or directly via email at dave at klamet.net. You can send an idea, or even a photo if you like and if I use it, you'll receive the thank of millions, .... or thousands, well, maybe hundreds....

The image(s) above is(are) of a part of a photo of a subject somewhere in the area. I'll add additional parts of the entire photo over the next few days. You are invited to try to guess the subject and location. I'll notify the first person who correctly identifies the subject or location of the entire photo. That subject or location won't be revealed until later, after the answer is obvious. I suggest that people indicate that their guess is "Final" as opposed to just speculation and limit themselves to one final answer per person.

Alia Ahmed identified this week's subject. See the bottom of this post for the subject and complete picture.

Many years ago, I was watching coverage of the Olympics, I saw a short segment that I still remember. It was about the last man to finish the marathon. He was never a contender, and he finished the race hours after the winners and far behind everyone else, but I guess he was too determined to stop.

Some days I think I know how he felt.

I have been creating an index of all the IPS (and SMTS)posts. I started on December 20th of 2007. I'm up to Feb 6, 2011 and my count is 127. Whew. Just thinking about it makes me tired. I surely didn't know what I'd gotten myself into.

But by golly, don't get your hopes up, I'm not done yet. One reason I finally got around to creating an index of my posts is so I could be sure I hadn't done this week's subject already. It turns out, I only duplicated one subject in all that time, and that was a special case anyway.

I think I'm up to about 160, and I don't want to stop before 200.

After all this time, I FINALLY used this subject...

It is time to give it to 'frankie8'. See the bottom of this post for the answer.

Still trying to my rhythm back, hopefully I'll do this on a regular basis, even if turns out to be less than once a week.

To that end, you can help by sending suggestions for subjects. I've done more than 150 of these, at last count, and my "dry periods" have gotten, as you might notice, somewhat longer.

You can send a private message though my account here on the LJW site. Or, to "myfirstname@mylastname.net". Uh, don't actually send it to that address, there is a little decoding you need to do first.

In other news, I'm finally getting around to compiling a list of subjects and links to all the IPS (and before that SMTS) posts. You'd have thought I'd have done that before now, being a software engineer and all. I chalk it up to using my underdeveloped right brain for this.


The rapidity with which the last few subjects have been identified has been, shall we say, distressing. To counter this disturbing trend, I have trekked far off the beaten path to find a subject this week. Of course, far is relative term.

OK, this is the complete photo. I'll provide more hints if this isn't enough.

A piece of play equipment, or maybe sculpture in front of Pinkney Elemenatary.

Well, I certainly thought this would take longer to identify, but dancemomx2 nailed it quickly. See the bottom of this post for the answer

Well, I haven't gotten into the rhythm of posting on a particular night yet, so please bear with me. These will likely be a little sporadic for a while.

Houses are the one continuing subject that fascinate me as I travel around the area. If I had the talent, I would be a "house" painter. I.e. a painter of paintings of houses.

The first image is of the distinctive feature of this week's subject so I expect this to be snapped up in no time.

Whoa, I almost made the first image too easy this time, luckily I came to my senses before I actually posted this entry.

Sorry I was slow to acknowledge jehovah_bob for having quickly identifying the subject. Darn him anyway. :-). See the bottom of this post for the subject

I had such a good time posting earlier this week, that I'm going to post one more as I happened to see a likely subject the other day.

Hopefully will get back in the groove and become a regular again.

Cody got it, what else can I say. See the end of the post for the complete photo.

Life changes have brought me back to my old haunts. Among other things, I work in Lenexa now and drive through town on my way home. That means I have fewer excuses for not looking for a subject.

The last post was 8 months ago, almost to the day. Is anyone still out there?

If this is, indeed, the start of a new round of IPS posts, then I've started you off easy. Please go easy on me.
