September Photo Contest: Perspective

Thank you, trakker, for selecting my Devils Tower camping shot as August's photo contest winner. I always love following this thread, and I'm honored to have won - I had some stiff competition.

Some of my favorite shots to take involve juxtaposing my airstream with something larger than it should be: a dinosaur, Babe the Ox, a pistachio, "Pedro", a giant rocking chair... I've put some examples from my collection below.

For September, please show me shots where your airstream looks unusually small next to something bigger than it should be. The more whimsical, the better. Show me a roadside attraction so large (and maybe even gaudy) that you couldn't resist parking your Airstream next to it and taking a photo.

Very nice! That airstream may have been there at Mt. R's grand opening.
