The Mexican Standoff

Oatman, Arizona (Route 66)

The meeting of a man and a burro in the small "Wild West" mining town of Oatman where wild burros and tourist roam freely. It's actually a pretty fun place to spend a couple of hours.

    2. I never knew there was a place not too far from me where I can roam freely with the burros! How fun is that (if you're not stepping into any waste material left behind by the burros)?
      What a great photo!!

  3. That burro is eyeing the food the man has in his left hand. If he isn't careful that burro is going to eat his lunch.

  4. A spotted donkey, that's rare! I'd love to be in a place where donkeys roam free.

  8. What a cool shot, it's fun and sweet at the same time. Love the sense of humour in your photos James!
    Burros are cute too, aren't they? ;-)

  9. I like the soft effect on the donkey : le contraste avec la brutalité de l'homme est remarquablement saisi.

  10. The expressions are so funny! The burro seems to say, "I'm glad he has his own ride!" This is one of those split second shots that you have to sense or you will miss it. Great timing!

  11. I can understand the fun of staying at such a place for a couple of hours of even a day or two.

  13. Wonderful place to visit! I remember Nara Park where wild deer are roaming. I feel a tense moment between the old man and the burro because of food. Humorous and fabulous photo.
