We found this couple alongside I-78 in Pennsylvania next to the Roadside America miniatures store. I previously read about the museum but didn’t have time to go in.
Another artwork in the Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park. This one is titled, “Lying Man.” Created by Sean Henry in 2003. I couldn’t help myself and had to pose with the sculpture. A couple of younger women wandered by as we were capturing this image. They enjoyed my pose but said I needed a pillow to be complete.
Well, cheap this was quite some find. I knew about this Viking from a report on Roadside America. We found our way to Bangor, shop MI High School, sale only to find that this guy stood past the end zone of the football field. Unfortunately, there was a fence around the entire athletic complex. Not to be deterred I went into the school office and made my case. Fortunately, my plea fell on sympathetic ears. One of the administrative assistants was kind enough to find the keys to the field and walked out to allow us access to the field. My regret is that I did not write her name down assuming I would be able to remember it. Not so. If anyone sees this post and knows this woman please send me a note at “email@example.com”
On our way to Saugatuck, Michigan we were surprised to spot this inflatable Big Judge. I’ve taken photos with a lot of Big People, pirates, Amish people, etc. but never found a judge before. This one illustrated Mike Anderson’s Auto Group pledge to not judge your credit when purchasing one of their cars.
A quick down to Ocean City with Deb and Nate netted me three Big Things. It was lousy weather in Cherry Hill but sunny and warm “down the shore.”
When we were in Cincinnati for the Brain Tumor Walk we decided to make a visit to the Art Museum. Out front is this Pinocchio.
Here’s an inflatable I spotted in front of the Midas shop in Glendale on my way downtown. I had to get with the Chief Photographer and get back to get the image. I’m not big on inflatables but I haven’t seen this one before.
Planning a trip to Los Angeles starts with a visit to the Roadside America web site. That’s where I found Sergio. The automotive alley garage area is unlike anything I’ve see in the US. There is a 4 or 5 block area of shops selling car parts. While we were there I saw cars pull up and asked for a part for a model year car. For example, “I’m looking for an alternator for a 1996 Toyota.” It was like a drive-in for auto parts. All the people I could see were Hispanic and they were curious why a couple of white folks were on their turf.
