Perhaps this blog is getting too monochromatic... But on my quest for today's photo I walked across a car service shop and saw these greasy tools that hit home. My home was always avast of wrenches, screwdrivers, pliers and the like. It always felt so normal to have such objects at hand whenever needed, and though I didn't very often, my dad made extensive use of them outside on his precious motorcycles. These hard metal chunks from the mechanical world are indeed built for men, those with thick-skinned hands that aren't afraid to get dirty. A mechanic pries steel bolts off hard screws, and is concerned about getting the machine running, not whether he got grease on himself or is forming another callus. He has to be as firm and strong as the metal he is taming, or it will tame him.
As I stopped and lifted my camera, the mechanic saw me, smiled, nodded, and walked back into his office...

ah ok!

Es una lastima no poder encontrar el grupo original pero aqui hay uno similar: [link]

puedes buscar por ti mismo grupos con las palabras "Daily" "Deviation", para ver si encuentras uno mejor.

Pero siempre presentala allí o a todos los que encuentres porque tu foto es una maravilla ^^
