First, thanks for looking at my pictures. Y'all made my day. :D

Second, though I've never read the book nor seen the movie (I've heard
of it), I'm a huge fan of 80's music.  So who could forget Warm
Leatherette by the normal?

Anyway, car crashes don't particularly turn me on.  They just sorta
happen and I'm standin there with a camera.  For what it's worth, a
well-known lugger previewed these shots and suggested an improvement
might be to photograph my wife climbing out of the windshield with a
six-pack in her hands.  See now that's perverse but amusing, and an art
of a completely different sort. :D
