Big Shows, Road side Monuments, Big yard art, Miniature golf, Kitchey Katchy. Where you could actually be a somebody and the locals would ignore you thinking you were an impostor.
There is a place in the middle of Lake Of The Ozarks called Branson in the state of Missouri. It’s kind of Vegas without the gambling, girls, sex, and rock n’ roll. More country, a little like Hoot Nanny with some of the confederate flag thrown in. It has been said that eventually; if Elvis, Jim Morrison, even Kurt Cobain would have lived to a ripe, old age they would have had their big old show moved to Branson. There are a number of multi million dollar compound homes perched on hills out here.
Branson has their own mini Mount Rushmore with Marilyn, john Wayne, and Red Skeletons. We noted Lots and lots of big construction projects going on, even during one the United States worst economic crises. And in the winter its a Lomographers paradise. Most everything is closed till about march.
The main strip is like a ghost town, and we were able to photograph to our hearts content with out people and cars in the photographs. It is such an odd place, you could be Brad and Angelina and no one would notice or care..and if they did they would think you were an impersonator, part of the many look alike shows here. We didn’t go to any of the shows; But if you like Andy Williams, Yakov Smirnoff, Shojitabuchi Theatre, the show The Titanic, Roy Rogers and Dale Evens cowboy show, Elvis & The Superstars Or impersonators like Marilyn, Streisand, The Beatles this is the place for you. We liked photographing all the abandoned road side amusement parks, miniature golf, and the motor home stopping yard art.
