Default Father's Day Gift

My friend Earl with his truck, 1994 Ford Splash. Earl's father gave him this truck a couple of months ago. Earl's father treasured it but can no longer drive it. So he could still have the memory of it, Earl "commissioned" me to photograph it for a Father's Day gift. We matted and framed it and it looks sensational. Earl got a little misty thinking how much his dad was going to love it.

Thanks very much, Bob. Earl was thinking it was going to be a snapshot in my driveway.
