Lawn Ornament

RA3_3505 WP

When Lisa and I stayed for a night in San Luis Obispo while on a Central Coast road trip, I woke early (as usual) and let her sleep while I took a walk with the camera. This lawn ornament was displayed down the street not too far away. 

This is a “Patton” tank, an M60A3, used by the US Marines and Army between 1960 and 1991. It was parked on the grounds of the Central Coast Veteran’s Memorial Museum.

Nikon D200. F/8, ISO 200, 1/200 second.
