It looks like they must move the camera from time to time.  The sculpture is neat, especially from the right angle.

See the little black blob in the picture at the intersection?  That would be me and my luggage on the way from the Metro station to my hotel.

2421.  Spent the afternoon running around NoVA focusing on OCUS hides.  Managed to grab the pic on my Droid. 

This is my first OC Webcam cache.  Thanks!

I was in the area visiting the OpenCache: Integrity, Service, Excellence and this was too close to pass up. Credit goes to FerretPack for capturing the picture for me.

I'm in the bottom right with Mrs sfcchaz. I'm holding up my GPSr and a piece of paper with my name on it. But the shot is too distant to make that out. Thanks for the fun.

My guess is signal bounce could be a major issue amongst the tall buildings.  I checked nighthawk's coords against my own on google maps and his are much closer.  Updated cache page to use his numbers.

Got this at 10:50 am today.  FTF? 

Took a little bit of going around, but I found it. I saw "A" sculpture, but tried to locate the exact coords as maybe there was another sculpture.  Nope.  So I go by the sculpture and see myself on the webcam.  Okay, I guess that's it, but the coords are about 150' off.  Here's what I had for coordinates:  N38 52.919, W 77 06.960.  It was significant enough to put me on the wrong side of Fairfax Dr.

Thanks for the Webcam!

 

Oh, for parking... Ballston Commons has parking 3 hrs. for $1, so I grabbed something to eat there too.
