Outside Sedona, AZ. there is roadside store that eventually will suck you in.

The 10 foot chicken in the entrance catches your eye first, but here that’s still not enough to hook you. We drove past a few times without stopping, discussed it, but kept moving on.

The color, bright familiar signs, and strange displays will finally get to you. How do you pass a pile of ceramic skulls under a giant red Coke sign?

Mexican style pottery is the main attraction. Once you’re inside you will find plenty of things you can’t possibly live without but don’t need.

How can you not buy an S & H Green Stamps sign or a relaxing 5 foot Thai deity.

 

Love Those 1950’s T-Birds

A few weeks ago we attended a car and air show at the Sedona Arizona airport. A complete section was dedicated to 1950’s Ford Thunderbirds. The cars were beautiful, the owners very serious about their cars.

The bright Arizona sun made this even more difficult to shoot than usual. However it did bring out some of the vivid colors and custom paint.

There were T-Bird owners from across the southwest so I assume this is a major show. Certainly was enough time and money dedicated to it.

While I’m not much of a ‘car guy’ this many classics in one spot was great fun. But as nice as they were I saw too many people polishing and cleaning their cars.

From A Balloon

If I wasn’t so obsessed about getting photographs from above the canyons I would never have been there in the first place.  Not only do you fly around in a picnic basket, there’s no way to steer these things.

Did I mention the flaming propane tank by your head? Wear a hat.

All that craziness changes once the people below let you go free. It’s hard to believe how gentle and soft you fly off. Not once did we feel any bumps, or even motion. A soft breeze, that’s it. Amazing but the  height never occurred to anyone, not even me.

I got all the shots from above I could want. Sunrise, buttes, and hills.

It was so comfortable I took my time composing images and taking different exposures.

Before you know it, time to land.
