I come across some very unusual things during my road trips. During my latest trip through New Mexico, I saw this massive sculpture that stands 20 feet high by 40 feet long. It's located at a rest area off Interstate 10 just west of Las Cruces, New Mexico. This sculpture is made out of all kinds of scrap...gym shoes, computer keyboards, an automobile headlight (the eye), trophies, belts, etc.
While I was photographing the sculpture, a truck drive approached me from the rest area parking lot. He was fascinated by the lens that I was using to capture closeup images of the roadrunner's head. I was using the Nikon 500mm f4 VR lens...which he thought was some kind of telescope. It was positioned on a tripod with a gimbal head--which makes it easy to maneuver. But, it also makes it look more like a telescope!
