Friday Photo Challenge – Cast Your Vote!

Odometer (Legend):  529,106


Odometer (ILX):  72,982


Of course it rained the day after I washed the Grand Canyon dirt off my ILX.  Oh well.


I love photo scavenger hunts, so I created one.  On February 7, 2009, I went for a scenic cruise in northern Utah’s Cache Valley on a brisk sunny day.  My 1994 Acura Legend had 364,980 miles on it at the time.  I stopped to take this series of pictures.  The location didn’t really have any significance.  I probably just felt like pulling over to document the scenic mountain range in the background.  The intersection was 1950 North, 200 West, in Logan, Utah.





The idea struck me.  How closely could my friend Ryan duplicate the photo with the street signs, 5 years later?

I sent it to him, to my mom, and to my friend Tyler.  Let’s see how they did.



Ryan’s Audi


Mom’s Lexus


Tyler’s Honda


Who gets the prize?

I guess I should decide what the prize is, too.

Have a great weekend, all.

  1. Mom’s Lexus for the stop sign is the closest to how it was in your picture!

  2. yup, mom’s Lexus for being so close – but Tyler’s car is my first choice as the one I wish I had!

  3. ditto, mom’s lexus. although it’s the wrong time of day.

  4. Mom by just a tad. The original has the stop sign post obscuring one of the fence posts. Mom came closest to replicating that.l

  5. GOTTA give it to Tia!

  6. Yes, Tia did the best at duplicating the photo Tyson took.

  7. That was a lot of fun. I won’t reveal how many times I moved my car in an attempt to get it right. Haha. I wish I had seen Ryan and Tyler out there standing in the street like I was.

  8. So what’s the prize? You giving away one of you cars?

  9. Mom’s Lexus gets my vote! 🙂

  10. Ryan nailed the stop sign placement in the mountains, as well as the building placement, but Tia got the horizontal angle including the hotel on the left. Well done!

    • You did ace the stop sign placement. This exercise was a lot more difficult than it initially seemed!

      • Mama Tia Says:

        I actually felt that Ryan’s shot had more similarities than mine, but that just means I have to take him to lunch again to celebrate our accomplishments.
