I think that when I found Mr. Zinn I realized what “found art” meant. We had stopped for breakfast here and were walking up to the diner when lo and behold a big picture opportunity! And this wasn’t this first time we stopped as Zinn’s either. Let that be a lesson to you.
Here’s another Indian. This one has seen better days, check out the fence. Found it (while working, ha ha!) on the way from Modesto to San Jose in California.
Another Alfred E. Newman type in New Jersey off I-195 near Great Adventure. Widely reported and glad to have him.
This is the Trio Tire Man on US-30 in Berlin, NJ. I have several of these guys. There is almost a cult being developed by the guys that write “Roadside America.” They call them Muffler Men. If you have a sense of humor and enjoy the offbeat things people do, check out these guys.
Check out this face. Mad Magazine and 30 feet tall! These big guys come with the same body but a variety of heads and garb. I wonder if the salesman has one of those books with celluloid overlays to compare different looks?
Chicagoland this time, just South of O’Hara Airport. At work (ha, ha!) again. I guess the lumberjack is appropriate since he was outside a lumberyard.
This guy looks similar but stands outside the Cowtown Rodeo in South Jersey. Lots of these Big Guys around.
Went hunting for this guy up in Seattle area. Another case of knowing he was out there. However, the location was not quite as described by my source. Close enough that I was able to find him. Couldn’t get any closer than this.
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.
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.
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!
Caught this Big Guy outside Ralph’s Muffler Shop in Indianapolis on 16th Street a couple of miles East of the track. He’s Mister Bendo and I understand he’s been there a while and is a local icon. Thanks Mike for climbing over the cars.
