Howdy y'all! I've been in Searcy, Arkansas for two weeks breathing in the fresh air while stargazing at a light pollution-free night sky! I've never had a remarkable photography blog during past visits, so I'm excited to show the world what Arkansas is y'all about.
Leaving Little Rock Airport. Time to experience the Natural State and the Land of Opportunity.
I have gone to Walmart almost everyday since I arrived. It's really the only establishment in this small-butt town. Everyone in this community either wears Arkansas Razorbacks shirts/sweaters or Mossy Oak camouflage. When it's really crowed, it looks like a bunch of red razorbacks are running around in a forest. :D!!
I was able to rent season 3 and 4 of Battlestar Galactica on D.V.D. format here at Hastings. Big Lots needs to update their store logo!
I was excited to find out where the CATO Institute is located:
Lighters sell out at a real fast SPEED here. I wonder why......
We can all agree Arkansas is a very religious state. Couldn't even 'take a leak' without thinking about Jesus.
My cousin makes knives and I had the opportunity of watching the process. I asked him if he could make me a "dragon knife" and he said he didn't have the equipment. :(
Here he is sharpening the blade. I could see this digital photograph making it into an issue of Blade Magazine.
I hope he's texting a girl something along the lines of: "Hey girl. Whatchu up to? I'm just sharpening a knife. Getting the blade real nice. Want to hang later ;)?"
This might as well be hung up in a museum of art in a section for photographs that conjure up strong emotions.
Country Corner offers 69cent soda refills. Watch out 711, you might have some competition soon!!!
Frank Myers is the T-Rex of Used Cars, which sounds really cool, but I can't quite figure out if that's a good or a bad thing.
Cruising around in my mom's car. Is 'cruising' legal here? Heh.
These are some houses in the area. I should have taken more photos of different houses, but I only took 10 photographs or so of these two houses. This is the best shot I captured probably. It's always such a tough decision picking between such wicked photos :'(
This is me in Arkansas sitting next to a dog:
I'm glad you could stop by. Hope y'all learned a thinger two 'bout this here state! I have more Arkansas photos to come in PART 2 of this exciting series. I need to lay down.
