Yeah... I don't know what the title is trying to say.

I just think the lighting is a bit sexy.

I don't speak "Car".

But after the challenge topic was announced, I headed out to the garage with my camera, not knowing what in the world I could shoot that would be interesting.

I opened the door into the garage and saw this.

I shot.

I edited.

I entered.

I feel like I accomplished something great. Ha!

I just want my car to go when I push the pedal on the right and stop when I push the left one.

That's all I know about cars. Well... I get the steering wheel, too. I'm pretty proud of that.

Hubby and I have this understanding. It happened after only a few years of marriage. Something went wrong with my car.

I went to him and said, "I know that it's not fair. And... it doesn't make sense.

BUT... when something goes wrong with my car... It's your fault. Even if there was no way you could have known it was going to happen, it's your fault."

He nodded and said, "Sounds fair to me."

And for the thirty years after that, he's kept his promise.

I got a good one! :D

On the balance part, there are things that are my fault even if I could not have foreseen them. I'm okay with that. It works for us.
