Telling statues in front of Rollies Camera in Sedona. Before this shop was renamed to Rollies', it was called Bradshaw's Photo Shop for 55 years since 1949.
Click here for some old photos of Bradshaw's Photo Shop and a photocopy of a $2000 business loan rejection letter. I guess the bank did not have the foresight to think that a camera store could survive in one of the most picturesque places of America.

wow, it seemed you have a great sedona trip, you've covered a lot. i like the picture, it is very much telling a story.

yes, there is a whale watching tour from san diego, that is from december - march only though. i too ma fascinated with that big statue over there of a navy and a nurse, but i know some other residents here didnt like the idea.

Thank you for the comments. I think the statues are quite lively and perhaps trying to convey that painters or photographers, young or old are mesmerized by the surrounding beauty.
