Wow. This picture has a strong, haunted feeling about it. I'm very patriotic, so I appreciate the photo topic, but also how it is off center just enough to fit the lamp post in the shot. Very well composed. Feel free to visit my gallery! #805478

Nice image Eric. I too like the lamp added in, but I also like the car lights...they have the whole red, white and blue thing going on. Nice work. Rhonda #5192674
