ok, lads ~ let's hear it ;)
I was walking in the historic district of Old Town, Alexandria (originally surveyed and laid out by a teenaged George Washington), when I passed by a familiar "man-cave" garage (no women allowed and anything goes in terms of decoration.) When visiting I have often seen the guys huddled together inside, with their cars, and a plentiful supply of beer nearby. But this time, I saw they had actually added some Christmas lights, sort of...
They were a bit affronted when I asked if I could take a few shots, but didn't object enough to stop me. As I walked away, I could hear one of them telling the tale of his surgeon showing up with a Black & Decker power tool. Such manly stuff! ;)

Hi Kristin, It is a rare place to hang the Christmas lights on., especially on an expensive Triumph. This one looks very beautiful. I am checking it rather than the Christmas lights. Nice use of lights and awesome clarity. Thank very much

I must admit that I'm no car expert, so I had to Google Triumph Motor Company to learn more. This one in your photo is very attractive; it has a nice face. :-) I like the Christmas lights and they way you tightly framed this view. It's a nice way to share some Christmas spirit. Thanks for directing me to learn something new with this photo. :-)

They were affronted? They should have been honored! I like the paint job on the car, the Christmas lights complement it well.
Good eye, congratulations on your courage.

Hi Kristin, this time no people on your photo but we can imagine these men in the garage. The car decorated like a christmas tree, and why not? I saw in New York the bike in a woollen sweater so that it had no cold.
Amusing shot and good to have smile in the time of Christmas duties.
Warm regrads MAlgo
