My camera is a Fuji FinePix S2950 that AT&T gave me for my 40th anniversary. It has a 10 second timer -- I did pretty getting that far, eh?
And I note you stopped in time, too, unless you sidestepped the whole way across the lot...

Looks like a 2 story building, no windows on that side, parking lot. Other than that, I'm stumped.

Googled ganbatte got me to http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=ganbatte -- "Do your best/try one's best, go for it."
On Goggle maps I got CrossFit Ganbatte in Glendale.

The language was one clue. Can you find this same spot on Google maps and search?

Another hint: it's not too far from one of your previous tags, not anywhere near Glendale

New Tag: Chromed Fireplug!

Can you believe it? Not red, not yellow, but shiny chrome. What city is so ghetto as to have a chrome fireplug?

Aha, got them both. Never really noticed the fire plug before. But, I'm at the court house every day. So, the city clerks office and planning dept side of Torrance city hall was an easy mark. I just didn't really want to go scoot there. glad I did to see the silver fire plug.

Actually I did make it over to Long Beach Blvd to check it out -- they are painted, not glossy. The chrome is still, IMO, tackier.

Can't always trust goggle maps. Many times the pictures on street view are old. When I look up my house it shows construction next door that took place 2years ago.

Anybody gonna go tag this spot, or should I post a new tag? The game has seemed to be stalled. Paladin was close by on the nationwide tag game with a couple posts, but I guess didn't get far enough west. And I thought I saw Ma Ma Monkey in Redondo today but I think she has been busy. I feel all alone.

I've been busy. I generally go tagging when I am out shopping. I don't shop in the beach cities.
Today I went to the Lomita Railroad Museum. In over 40 years in the So Bay I had never went to it. An interesting place, and now I have to blog it.

Hi RB,
You DID see me today, and I actually thought about the tag, but I was very tight on time. I also am booked for the rest of the weekend, so I am not much help right now.
The funny part about this particular tag is that I have a pic of my scoot in front of the surfboards, not the lady, that I took months ago.

Don't worry, though, I have to keep playing, I have a SCOOTER TAG PATCH now for god's sake!

XOXO
Lisa

PS were you scooting when you saw me?[/quote] Nope I was in my suv . I do 40 miles or so around local for work each day. I see a lot of cool places to tag but I'm not on my scoot, but I have them in the memory bank. I see you alone or with your husband on your scoots often too. Patch ?
