    And What an exposure it is……
    Joel, this is my all time fave of yours.
    You MUST get this enlarged to massive proportions and hang it in your house!!!
    I cant stop looking at it..
    I’m sooooo Jealous!

  • lmao. “massive proportions”. That would be great! If I can just get the wife to approve, hehe. She chooses what goes on the walls. :P It is one of my favs as well. Next time you come to the states I’ll have to take you there, its a great spot (minus the millions of biting gnats).
