What
The garage was built by my Cousin and her husband, He is a retired mechanical engineer, car collector and history enthusiast. The building was built in the style of a 1930-40s public garage and he calls it the "Cito Garage", after a real garage that existed nearby and was operated by my Cousins grandfather. The old cars, signs and flags all are from his collection and fit the theme of a 1930-40s garage. The photo I have in this contest was just one of several taken as part of a project I dreamed up because I liked how the Neon Dodge sign looked lit up at night, (linked here) https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/lens-clubs/74194-da-limited-club-122.html#post1878556 and decided I would go back and stage a shot, and I did. (linked here) https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/lens-clubs/74194-da-limited-club-126.html#post1899893 My Cousin and her husband now have this second linked photo hanging in their home as a 16x20. One day they contacted me and said hey the company we bought the building from is having a photo contest, and we should enter one of your photos of the building. First prize is $500 and I would split it with them as they added the required narrative and own the building, also the photo is featured on the yearly calendar. I had hoped it would be juried, but as it ends up the winner will be chosen by internet votes, so as I said a popularity contest. As a Pentax user/addict the Pentaxforums is my system support group, and here I am hat in hand asking for help with winning. I expect the odds of one of the other nine finalists being a Pentaxian and member here are very slim, So I am facing a Canikon user and that support group Army, so hey I'm the underdog! There you have it, my what, the who and why, are for good measure.

done, because it is the best photo there. Unfortunately it looks like most people are voting for the building they like best.

Actually I was wrong voting ends 23 Sept, so I won't know until after Sunday. So still time to vote for a photo.
