Big ThingsSunday, January 21, 2007
I was going through some of my older pictures to put up on Flickr, and found this one of the Big Red Dog in Northport, Alabama:
Isn't it great!? It's by metalwork artist Steve Davis, who owns SunHeart Metalworks.
Once I uploaded the pic to Flickr, I added it to the group, "Big Things - Big Kitsch and Big Tacky, Big Strange & Big Weird" which is really fun (and I love the giant jackalope in South Dakota that someone just added!).
The other pics I have in that group are:
The giant buffalo at the Tupelo Buffalo Park in Tupelo, MS:
The Rooster El Camino at Ms. Billie's in Irvington, Alabama (this is my favorite!):
This alligator in Lake Charles, Louisiana:
The Tale of Two Cities Pelican in Pensacola, Florida:
This catfish in Belzoni, Mississippi:
Tin Man with Heart at Jim Bird's in Forkland, Alabama (my other favorite):
The Pike County Cattlemen and Cattlewomen Bull Sculpture in Pike County, Alabama:
A giant cow at the State Farmer's Market in Montgomery, Alabama:
A big chair in Thomasville, North Carolina:
...and this rooster made out of car bumpers at ArtWurks in Brundidge, Alabama:
I need to find our picture of the "Big Texan" at the Big Texan Steak Ranch in Amarillo, Texas and add it, too!
