Yippie Ki Yay

A copper horse statue in downtown Scottsdale

Here’s another one from this summer’s Google Plus Photowalk held in old town Scottsdale.   

We had just finished up our walk and were at that “where are we going to eat”  phase when I noticed the sun coming through the horse sculpture.  So I laid on the ground and framed up the shot.  One thing about shooting with a bunch of photographers is they know the drill.  No one even gave me a second look for laying flat out on the sidewalk.  Ahh the company you keep.

For the movie buffs, can you remember a certain Bruce Willis movie where this expression (plus another choice word) was quoted?  If so leave your guess in the comments.

Until next time…


Camera: Canon 5DM2 with a Canon 17-40L

  1. What a great find, Chris. Good job capturing this fine shot, man.

    Yippie-Ki-Ya, from the first “Die Hard” movie is my guess. I’ve seen them all so they are starting to run together now. 🙂

  2. Really nice shot sir, I think those rays bring the whole thing together. Gives life to the photo that otherwise might seem static.
