Will this work?

This is the George Eastman House. George Eastman was the founder of Kodak.

"In 1919 Mr. Eastman had the mansion cut in half. The north (rear) section was moved 9 ft. 4 in. north. The cost was $750,000; the project took approximately 3 months, moving 7 hours on one day. The house was moved with horizontal hydraulic jacks on railroad ties with special wheels and tracks."





If the tag is accepted, go find a big castle-looking building (not residential). This is the "Main Street Armory" in Rochester NY. It is now used for shows such as concerts.

I figured you might have thought of that one, since you posted on this thread after the tag was up. It's cold here today, but tomorrow will be a good tag day for sure!

Go find me a BIG castle!!

It's a coconut crab. Largest know land crab. Real and very tasty but endangered in many locations. As the name says they love to eat coconuts. They are also a favorite food of wild boar and other indiscriminate predators in the tropics where feral pigs tend to decimate their populations.

Isn't the tag supposed to be "larger than life"? For sure I though that was fake, but GEEZZZZ that thing is huge!

It's snowing here again.... so no tagging for me for a while....

lowering the bar

A sign or painting is fine if you can't find a 3D version crawling around.

This is actually more difficult than I imagined. We're a bivalve and istiophoridae state. Everywhere I go I see oysters and marlins but no crabs represented in the seafood imagery. I've been thinking, and it feels like cheating...since they aren't native, that maybe I'll find a "Red Lobster" sign and run with that. But I'd prefer to something better and less artificial.
