I love the beards they're wearing. Most of those are fake, of course.

I often drive past this gorgeous circa-1920s three-bay garage that's still used as an auto repair shop. On one occasion, very late at night, the center bay door was wide open. Gathered around a small card table, brilliantly lit by fluorescent shop lighting and framed by a couple cars with their hoods propped up, were about a half-dozen mechanics playing poker.

I've been by there many times since at varying hours and I've yet to see another poker game. I can only conclude that either the game must rotate between garages, or those players were all ghosts.

These are great. I like how they manage the odd postures in some of the paintings, notably the last one.

RonButNotStupid, those were weremechanics. During the day they're dogs playing poker.

Yeah, these are just lovely. I now want to see the same series of photos for various professions.
