    i like rust!!! and especially here i love the colors and the details!! :o)
    is the sexual ambiguity intended??? ;o)
    p.s. (doesn’t belong here, but doesn’t matter): i know you must be waiting desperately for my mail to come, i am not in the mood for writing mails at the moment, but it will come. promised.

  • I didnt even notice that, Benedikt, but I sure do now. No, that was not intentional, but now that you pointed it out, it is pretty obvious. Maybe I should change the title? LOL
    no worries about the email – take your time!!

    well, i guess, from my point of view, you’ll HAVE to change the title. because when the picture i see, has got this double meaning, the title has a certain double meaning too!!! lol…. ahem.

  • It is all open to interpretation! I commend you on seeing something that even I didnt see until you pointed it out. Well done, my friend! Well done!
