Thank you Lorna, Tammy, Jeff, Cathy, Doug, Shelly, Emile, Nikki and Cyn!!

The owner's garage had been converted into a real "man cave" where I'm sure he spends much time caring for his baby and enjoying beers with the several friends who were there.

Talk about a masculin comp -- this is really strong David! I love how the chrome dominates and pops!! This comes close to being a space abstract for me :0)
