Here’s an example of timing. Monster Beverages was having their Grand Opening sale in Glassboro, NJ when I spotted this inflatable. Without camera or photographer at the time I wheeled in and asked if this beauty would still be up on Saturday. After a couple of strange looks and consultations I found out it would.
This gal is one of my favorites, and close to home too! She’s the only “Big Gal” that I’ve seen so far, but I’m sure there are more around. See what the “Experts” have to say.
This was a planned shot as a result of an early bird dog report. This wine bottle advertising Renault Winery is on Route 30 in South Jersey. Sometimes people slow down when we’re taking one of these pictures, that was the case here.
A semi planned shot. I knew the gumball machine was in BJ’s (a wholesale club) but I hadn’t planned on taking the photo. We were shopping at the home center next door and ran in to get a corned beef for dinner. I wasn’t dressed for this, note the painting clothes.
If you don’t think this is a great image “get outta town.” That is what we say here in South Jersey. Even though the image was taken with the Robin in Kalkaska. Both the Robin and this Trout are the state Bird and Fish of Michigan. I have this image as my wallpaper at work.
Give me a better example of a Big Picture than this. US-131 in Kalkaska, MI, late in the day, both me and the robin are relaxed. Check out the hat. (Another vacation hat picture with a twist.)
Houghton Lake, MI in front of Zubler’s Indian Village on M-55. They have simulated Indian Pow-Wows twice a day at 10am and 2pm. Really hoaky, but the gift shop is first rate.
In Indian River, Michigan you can find this inspiring site. Services are held outside here weather permitting. I knew about this Big Cross for a long time but didn’t realize how I would impact me.
Paul & The Babe outside St. Ignace, MI. The only time I spent money to get a “Big Picture.” It cost 50 cents (25 cents apiece) to get into this little park from the gift shop. Not much of a gift shop either!
A Paul Bunyon in Grayling, MI. There are lot’s of Paul’s spread out over the upper mid-West. I think he is made out of car parts. This was the first of many big pictures taken on my original “Big Picture” safari. To see the others taken on this trek, look for the hat!
On the way to the Mystery Spot in the Upper Peninsula along US-2. When, wham we found this Big Thing. I like this deer as much as any other image I have.
I think just about everyone has seen this donut somewhere or other. But that didn’t stop me from finding my way to Southern California. Located on Manchester Boulevard near LAX this Randy’s Donuts may be one of the most recognized donut shops in the country.
What can I say about this piece of American Automotive Art. This huge tire stands beside litter strewn I-94 in Allen Park, MI. I-94, appropriately enough, when it enters Detroit is named the Henry Ford Expressway. How ’bout that.
Another inflatable. A once in a lifetime shot for me since I got this one in St. Louis during a Grand Opening of a Circuit City Store, and a long way from home. Of course if you live in St. Louis you may see the KSHE pig around town. My guess is that KSHE is a rock ‘n roll station. What do you think?
