Friday My Town Shoot Out - What am I?

The Friday My Town Shoot Out started early in 2009 as the result of blog communications between Patty and Reggie Girl and has now expanded to a gang of like-minded enthusiasts around the world. This week the Shoot Out home page features an interview with Patty on the origins of this meme. Patty is a stellar photographer and does an awesome job of sharing her town of Crisfield, Maryland through her blog. She and I have become blogosphere friends and our cats say "Hey!" to each other every now and then.

But I digress. This week the Town Blogger Team chose the theme "What am I?" Here are my two entries.

I am metal, but what am I?

Are they dancing to a Motown hit, maybe "Stop in the Name of Love!"? Are they rehearsing the Monty Python skit "The Minister of Silly Walks"?

I'll put you out of your misery. The first is a metal rendition of the City of Woodstock logo, unfortunately I could find an explanation of the symbol anywhere.

The second photo is of a Taoist Tai-Chi group. They have a studio across the street from Museum Square here in the city and last night they took advantage of the lovely, humidity-free weather to take their exercises outdoors to the Square.


  1. I never would have guessed the town symbol, but the tai chi I got right away!

  2. # A sign of an industrial area
    # Exercising Tai Chi

    Here is mine!

    FSO~Local Mystery

  3. I didn't recognize either one of them. Great shots.

  4. I didn't read the answers.

    The first one is very talented skywriting done with black smoke instead of white.

    The second one is a meeting of the Pessemist's club trying to hold back the dawn.

  5. I wouldn't have guessed the symbol, either would have gone with tempered steel of some sort. But I would have got the tai chi - I'm a great fan!

  6. Hmm....part of a gate? garden decorations?

  7. I was going to say part of a fence and some sort of exercising class. this is fun guessing all the posts.

  8. I never would've guessed the first shot! The second one is really pretty - looks very peaceful :)

  9. lol I haven't got a clue. The last one I would have said a load of pensioners who have escaped from their care home

  10. I figured the forst was a logo on a gate, and I knew the second was tai chi!

  11. I thought the frist one was a sign or art and the second one I tought they were doing Karate or dancing

  12. You gave the answer.

    I think know the first,.

    I thought it was a game, trust the leader, with the followers shutting their eyes.
