Surveillance Photo Contest: How good are your Eyes?

By The ITS Crew

Surveillance Photo Contest

Due to the overwhelming amount of questions that have been pouring in about the photo we used in our article PSD Concepts: How to Detect Surveillance and Counter, we’ve decided to come up with a contest.

In this contest we want you to name each item in the photo as well as what kind of vehicle (make & model) is shown in the photo.

This isn’t going to be our typical reader appreciation contest, so keep reading to find out all the requirements and details.

Contest

First off, let’s get into what we need in your entry:

  • Visit and Join our Flickr ITS Reader Photos Group! Feel free to share a photo while you’re there too.
  • Look and Observe in the Group, where you’ll find a hi-res image from our article you can use. There’s also an important hint in the photo description!
  • Post your Entry either back here in the comments, or in the photo comments on Flickr. List all the items in the photo (see the hint)
  • Win Big with the first correct answer naming all the items!

Prizes

The first correct answer stating all of the items wins a free ITS Tactical Challenge Coin, ITS Tactical Patch (your choice of color) and ITS Tactical Sticker. We’re going to let this contest go until someone wins!

Winner must be a member of the Flickr ITS Reader Photos Group to be eligible to win.

Thanks for your participation and supporting ITS Tactical! Good Luck!

Eric S. Was the one that took the photo I think, so that was my best guess. I honestly couldn't find photos of anyone, not Bryan Black, Brent, or anyone...

This is about as close as I found, scroll down to see the pic:

http://www.juicemagazine.com/ANIMALCHINDVDPREMIER.html

I was looking at face shapes, and the guy in the pic in the car 'looks' like he has a roundish or heart-shaped face, which matches Mike well enough.

I sunk way to much time into this, I have finals in about four days lol

Correction, sorry... the person I'm thinking of played the part as Alan Winters of Slash Skateboarding in the movie "The Search for Animal Chin." But I don't know his real name.

Same here, I looked through every single photo I could find by Eric (photobucket, flickr, its tactical, mil photos, and so on) without finding anyone who looked like the guy in the photo. His facial structure looks wider than Eric's, could just be the washed out photo tho.

Maybe it's an ITS photo, not one by Eric... But it's his car, so I don't know. Either way, good exercise.

12. Photo of subject to be watched or followed. Brent M. Piatti of OpOutpost... come to think of it, I don't think I found a single photo of Eric S. with long facial hair, so there.

Oh Well I gave it a pretty good shot.

Well, now that I look at it again I STILL don't think it's him. In the photo from the car the eyes seem to wide to be Mike Vallely. Plus his hair seems to be too fine to flip like that since all the photos of him with long hair has his hair straight with no curls.
