    Both cool shots! It's hard to pick a favorite but I'm leaning toward the second one. :) I love the Strasburg area.

    I'll bet'cha if you blew the second up to about 20x30 inches, framed it and hung it on the wall, you could smell the grease and oil when you walked by! :biggrin:

    Thank you.

    I probably would especially if I wear the same sneakers, the oil/tar is hard to get off them.
