Don Parks’ Yard of Statues, Signs + other junk

In Phoenix, Arizona we stumbled upon this incredible yard. Similar to Jerry Lotz’s yard in Louisville, KY which I visited back in February, Don Parks has a whoooole lot of junk in his front yard…

Don had a little bit of everything. He’s been collecting statues, signs, and other fun miscellaneous things for over forty years. In 2012 he even purchased the property across the street so he could have more room to collect! There is just SO much to see.

I’m so excited that there is more than one place out there with people that have extravagant collections like this in their front yards. Like I said in the post about Jerry’s junk, even though I could never see myself amassing a collection like this,
there’s just something that draws me into collections and their owners.
It’s like I just get it, I understand how it feels to be passionate
about weird things. If there is Jerry, and now Don, there has to be more! I want to visit them all.

All of the photos above were taken with a pentax k1000 and Fujifilm 35mm Superia X-TRA 400.
