Cadillac Ranch – Amarillo, TX, originally uploaded by Stephan Segraves.

Jessica spent a portion of her break from work hanging pictures around our home. Even though this picture was not one chosen to be put on the wall it is a great representation of what we love doing together.

Cadillac Ranch is one of those “off-the-beaten-path” tourist attractions that is just fun to walk around and take pictures of. On this particular day there was a family at the sculpture and they were all carrying spray paint, part of the tradition behind this place. They were running around, painting their names and messages on cars and just having a good time.

As we walked around, I realized that it was quiet for being so close to the highway. I started reading the messages that people had left on the cars and saw plenty of hearts and peace signs.

So, if you get the chance, head to Amarillo, put the windows down, and just enjoy the fun stuff.

    Did you take your can of spray? If so, what did you write? This was your chance to graffiti since your younger days of crayoning the walls of our home!

    We didn’t have any spray paint (the thought didn’t cross my mind until we were out there). Though, I wish I did have a can, I could have unleashed the inner artist!

    Great picture! I love how you captured the shadows. Marnie and I have talked about how we would love to take a few weeks to explore the southwest. Once Viv is old enough, I think we’ll need to plan a road trip.
