Counting With Pictures - Re-Boot!

    The "Counting With Pictures" Thread has gone off the rails - It's very rare to see an actual photo or picture of an actual number in it any more. Pics with numbers out of an online catalogue hardly count, do they?

    A couple of examples of what I mean here:

    So, here we are; The all new (completely plagiarised) "Counting With Pictures - Re-Boot" thread.

    Previous rules (see below) apply, and the NEW rule is that the number must actually be contained in the picture, like the number 374 is in this picture:

    Original Rules:
    The rules:

    1. The number can be in either word form or numeric form. "1" is fine, as is "one".
    2. The number must be on its own - not a part of another number. In other words, "1582" is not an acceptable response for 1, 5, 8, or 2.
    3. Images that represent the number in some way are acceptable. For example, a picture of seven rabid wolverines is acceptable for the number 7. However, if the reference isn't obvious to everyone, you might tell us the reference (or at least tell us what number it represents).
    4. One exception to the above that will probably come into play as we get higher in number: Google Image labels that are really specific (i.e. no one would know about it) are NOT acceptable "references." In other words, a picture of a fire engine "Reserve Engine 1279" is not an acceptable answer for 1279 unless the number is actually in the picture.
    5. Images that aren't quite right, but are otherwise funny or clever may be acceptable. For example, an image of a "pie" is probably acceptable as an answer for 314.
    6. At the top or your reply, please type the number your picture represents if it isn't clearly in the picture.
