Grab

1- The Tallest structure in your area. Anything goes. Building, statue, silo you name it just has to be the tallest for your area. If you have it give the size too.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...ngs_in_Raleigh
538'



2- The oldest building or one with an interesting histroy behind it. Again details do your research
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mordecai_House
Built in 1785. Oldest residence in Raleigh on its original foundation.



3- Smallest occupied building (no pump houses or sheds here guys) business or residence that people live or work in. give size if you can.
Tough one. Not a lot of documentation on this kind of thing, but, from this document:
http://www.ncsu.edu/ncsu/facilities/...P_Workshop.pdf
This is "Smallest occupied building: Centennial Campus Information Booth 210 GSF"



4- Wierdest or oddest shaped building (ie round or barrel shaped) if you don't have one like that then one that would make you say WOW! or Damn! (messiest or funny color)
I'm going to have to go with:



5- Scariest building OR place. We need the story behind it. (ghost, strange lights,etc)
And as luck would have it, the Mordecai House is also haunted.
If I'd have been extremely creative, I probably could have gotten the PNC Building from the same location.

New list. Looking for notable occurrences on February 3rd, there are two that stick out to me. First, it's the day Buddy Holly died and it's also Dave Davies (from The Kinks) birthday. Let's go with Kinks songs.

1) Celluloid Heroes - the marquee at a movie theater

2) All Day and All of the Night - something open 24 hours with an indication of such

3) Destroyer - a building in some phase of being demolished

4) Acute Schizophrenia Paranoia Blues - some place dealing with mental health in some manner

5) Waterloo Sunset - a view of a river (or body of water) from a bridge.

Nice Grab. And bonus points for reading information of the places too.

Well now I can handle 4 pretty easy. The demolition building hmmmm. Now a couple weeks ago I could have had that easy. It's an empty lot now.

Alrighty then, how about 5 different things/vehicles/objects that routinely race on an unpaved (non-concrete or asphalt) surface/track/trail.

Yep lawnmowers count. and they don't have to be actively racing in the shot.

I can do that without leaving my garage but I won't.

To clarify.....It has to be a racing vehicle not what said vehicle was modeled after. Correct? (ie I could not go take a picture of a riding lawnmower at Lowe's it has to be a racing lawnmower)

I'm fine with anything that could have the "potential" to race.

So you can take a picture of a horse and his name doesn't have to be Seabiscuit.

Have fun....

Trust me. If THAT is what gives everyone issues with me, they have never met me.



That said, that would be the ultimate cheap way for what should be a cool multi grab. Someone in the Charlotte area should snag this. I know there are some taggers that work for NASCAR teams, and could get all of these at there work.

I thought this one might get the attention of you NC boys.

If the NASCAR taggers get involved just remember the unpaved part (sprint/dirt trackers).

Although some drivers like to take it to the unpaved portion of the track.
