A photo that is guaranteed to provoke viewers’ smiles. The incongruity of Mathew perched comfortably in the obviously spacious engine bay really makes this picture work. It might have made a stronger image had photographer Oli come in a bit tighter so as to crop out the uninteresting right hand side of the picture. The left side offers the eye some intriguing and illuminating detail about the location and the front-on angle is just right.
