Mystic Carhenge

.... I overheard the following at Carhenge: “The thing is, the guy is basically nuts… he wanted me to help him do it, but he wanted to do it the traditional way, with mead and all that.” A prophet is never accepted in his home town...

    The idea is great even it's look formated... I love what you compare (Stonhendge carhendge) even if I cannot ewplain it as welle as possible in a foreign language.

    Hilarious sculpture! What I like most about the pic is the handling of colour - beautifully fragile and the light skilfully managed to give so much detail. But I do think that the composition overall detracts a little from the overall impact especially imho in having a bit too much foreground - excellent pic though, love it.

    et, Bob Coati - vous vous exprimez tres bien sauf quelques fautes orthographiques (par exemple Stonehenge, explain, well) mais ca n'importe, n'oubliez pas qu'il n'y a pas beaucoups d'anglophones qui parlent francais (ou bien espagnol, chinois, allemand etc)(et je sais bien que mon francais est loin de parfait!)

    a very interesting subject indeed... and handles quite well. though i feel, its too tightly cropped on the sides.

    Hi Kevin,
    I've seen documentation of this work before. It's really a neat piece. I love to use it when I try and make my students understand the importance of history: it shows us the link we all have with each other through culture. Links within our time and across time.
    Would you mind if I download this (original size). It's the best reproduction of it I've seen. Better than the one I use.

    i love car henge!
    i actually have a couple of friends that were married there!
    they called the alliance nebraska chamber of commerce to see if anyone had done this before and surprisingly no (ha)...the license was only $35. they bought their 60's wedding clothes used...the whole wedding was under $100...
    i joked that if it didn't work out (their marriage) that they were only out $100.

    Do the Priests there dress up like old 1950's Texaco Service Station Attendants, and call themselves "Fluids" instead of "Druids"?
