I spent much of today in neighboring Seminole, Oklahoma, where I photographed the Jasmine Moran Children’s Museum for an upcoming edition of Ada Magazine. It was a nice, chilly November day out, but inside the place was bustling with kids. It made tons of great photos.
I confess that one reason I love visiting that museum is that I get to photograph myself in their “infinity mirror,” which I’ve been doing since the 1980s. Today I brought my fisheye, which worked out pretty well.
I called Wil C. Fry to find the location of Roller Coaster Road, which I wanted to photograph after seeing his image of it some years ago. (I searched his Flickr account for it, but couldn’t find it; he might have made it private.) He gave me directions.
On the way there from the museum, I stopped at the local Braum’s to use the restroom and ended up getting a “tuxedo” ice cream sundae. I don’t have a big sweet tooth, but the mood struck. It was great.
I’m glad to hear that Braum’s continues to be a going concern. Also? I would totally have to lift my hands and go “whee” every time I drove on roller coaster road.
Love the mirror! Very cool.
And glad I was of some help in finding the road; my own photo was from a mile or two south of SH9, looking back north:
And yes, it’s indeed non-public now. If you’re signed into your giant muh Flickr account, you should still be able to find it via Flickr’s search. Or by searching my “My Life” blog. :-)
‘Any comment about “many me,” split personality, or feeling alone in a crowded room works here.’
“Feeling alone in a crowd”
“Everyone is just like everyone else”
“So many attractive people at this party!”
“I wish those people would smile when I frown at them”
