“I’ve driven by this sign hundreds of times, and each time I’ve told myself, ‘I need to shoot that thing,’” says Randy Pugh, a sometime-photographer who notes the challenge of getting the shot. “I did feel like I was going to get hit when I took some shots from the median between the I-10 off-ramp and the feeder road,” says Pugh, a senior web coordinator for the United Way. The technicolor sculpture was designed by artist David Adickes, also famous for having carved enormous busts of all of the U.S. presidents.
