Strike a Pose!


Sometimes the spirit moves me to gather up a notebook, trinkets, and a recyclable camera and put them into a container you might use for leftover peas and then go hide the container in the woods for others to find.


The woods I’m thinking about are about a half mile from the house. I’ve been mystified lately because a photographer has been taking clients here in among the knee high weeds and garbage strewn from the McDonald’s across the street.


This is where they have been setting up their cameras and hauling out wing chairs and fancy sofas, tripods, reflectors, and other such things. I am a mere picture taker and not a photographer so what do I know, but I still don’t get it why this is such a great place for wedding photos.


For my cache location I pushed on well past where the photographers click and their subjects pose.


By the time I found a place, hid the cache, checked and double checked the coordinates, the sun was going down and the moon was going up.


Not bad for hand held moon shot, for a picture taker like me that is. A photographer would hide their head in shame.

This is your only clue. Go check out Strike a Pose! if you want to find it. 

I would like to thank my fellow Americans, both Democrats and Republicans as well as the few independents out there for being so supportive of spending unrestricted billions of dollars for high tech satellites in space so that I can go hide tupperware in the woods. I salute you all!

If you were trying to find this cache first (FTF – first to find) you are too late. RobPillageBurn (What a name!) found it within hours of the cache going live. In the dark. He ran into some thorns that I forgot to mention.

    what an awesome idea. so creative. how often do you hear from these folks? reminds me of what we did in elementary school sending up a balloon with our address & then we would get a note in the mail from the folks. so exciting. i love it!!

    Great post. My guess on the wedding photos is the contrast between the gussied up couple and the wilderness background.

    I’m guessing that the camera is intended to be used by the finder for a self-portrait. I hope you will post the gallery after harvesting the camera.

    No apologies necessary for the hand held moon shot as it is terrific. I have taken similar shots and know how tricky the exposure is, and how hard it is to eliminate the camera “shake”. Great post today; lots to look at here.

    I think your moon shot is terrific!! No apologies needed indeed!! They’re not easy to get and this one is beautiful!! You do have fun with your geo-caching! I think it’s great!

    LOL at your photographer comments! I like this series of photos, and although I’ve never tried geocaching I’d like to one day.

    uh-0h, I feel RobPillageBurn’s pain, going through those thorns. Sounds like you have a lot of fun hiding your geocaches in creative places.

    I think having friends named RobPillageBurn can be a true asset in our times.

    If I ever figure out how to get across the Hudson River and keep going southwesterly, I just might find that cache.

    Really enjoyed this post.

    I am glad that you regularly make use of our satellite investment. So many just let it go to waste.
    The rustic background is very popular now in portrait photography. Like you, I am a picture taker, but I have seen many a senior picture recently, and a few wedding portraits set in some pretty grungy locations.
