We Like Big Things in America

From the Archives -  2012



Oklahoma again.
This store was robbed last November.  They caught the guy a month later.
Maybe they need to get a guard dog instead.

Okay truth is, King Kong is only about 3 or 4 feet tall.  
The way I set up the shot made him look much bigger.

Subtle and understated - America at her best!

Well executed. Big is big and when its not we make it appear as big. Good one.

Funny, John. And clever how you made King Kong look bigger than life.

Oh this what so nice to see a little scary but in general. I liked all.

Michelle said...

King Kong does look much bigger!

Randy said...

You forgot the one in California.

Some would say that the model of the T. rex with the person in its mouth is historically accurate!
