    Despite knowing how underwhelming the world's largest frying pan really is, I kept that from my family and we hopped in the car and drove to rural Rose Hill, North Carolina (population 1684) so they could check it out. They were even more unimpressed than me, which I found quite amusing. Perhaps it's a form of torture to them, but executing my concept of standing before this thing in my robe and slippers with eggs and a spatula...in the middle of town... was priceless.

    Mike really got into the mindset of the road trip. Not only did he plot to photograph a ridiculous place, he subjected his family to the torture. If nothing else you gave them a great story to remember. Photographically I love the way you took the symmetry and ran with it!
