Concordville Pot

This is a Big Clay Pot (actually a Big Plastic Pot) that I got on US-322/US-1 near Concordville, PA. Since we took this image I have seen a lot of these big pots around laying on their sides with flowers or some such thing growing out of them. A cornucopia of plants.

Dresden Baskets

Here I am in Dresden, Ohio at the Longaberger Factory. Big baskets all around. You can take a factory tour, make your own basket, it’s quite the place. They even have bus tours here for the fanatical amongst us. I’m not the fan in my house but I appreciate the operation from a business standpoint. What a money-maker!

Surfside Casual Chairs

I noticed these chairs outside a branch of Surfside Casual in Somers Point, NJ last summer. Never made it back until this Spring. I got ’em and I’m glad. They bear an amazing similiarity to the two chairs we found earlier on the way to Long Beach Island.

Indianapolis Trowel

On our way to drop Andy off at college last summer I was looking for a pair of Big Boots that I could have sworn was on US-31 north of Indianapolis. Well I didn’t find the boots but check out this trowel. Of course it was in a garden center.

Black Horse Pike Hubcaps

I don’t think that this image fits all of my criteria, but I like it so much that I just have to include it. As a matter of fact I purchased a hubcap a few years ago for our 1985 Voyager. If you had a Voyager you know how bad the hubcap design was that year.

Sorry Looking 9 Ball

This may one of the sorriest of inflatables that I have ever seen. Dirty, underinflated, what a mess. I don’t understand how a business owner would think that this would attract customers into the showroom.  Beats me!

Surfside Chairs

Hey Romeo, here’s to my Italian Bird Dog. He gave me info on these chairs. I just never made it to LBI. We usually hit the shore south of Atlantic City. These were both in front of Surfside Casual Furniture on Rt. 72 just east of US-9. Could be easy to miss if you weren’t looking for them.

Skipper’s Anchor

Lookin’ pretty good outside Skippers up in the Seattle area. I would guess they had seafood as a specialty. Notice the dress, I was working (ha, ha!). I’ve been back but neither Skippers nor the anchor is there any longer. Things may be Big but that does not mean they are permanent.

Detroit I-94 Tire

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.

City Hall Clothespin

People from Philadelphia are familiar with this Big Clothes Pin since it located across from City Hall at Broad and Market. My sister Irene took the image with great aplomb. Afterward we had lunch at Cafe Warsaw and had elegant Polish food. (No kidding, it’s a great place.)

Jan’s Chair

A pretty good quality Big Chair. It’s not always outside, note the casters on the bottom of the legs. I got this image courtesy of my Bird Dog Jan. She has a pretty good sense of humor even though she she works in HR. (That might be a mistake, poking fun at HR, but we (me) Big Picture Takers live close to the edge.)

Sue’s Chair

See, another Bird Dog shot thanks to Sue. On US-40 between Malaga and Elmer. This was a last chance shot since the furniture store where this chair was located was closing soon. Sue told me about this chair but I put it off until I heard the store was closing. Kind of feel like Lily Tomlin.
