Hey! I think this is a great shot. It must be all those young whippersnappers who've never seen a classic book of matches that were used to advertise just about anything and everything (that was back when you were weird if you didn't smoke).
Not to mention the brilliance of giving aware items that create fire at a gasoline station (that was back when if you lit a match at a gas station and blew yourself up, it was your fault for being so stupid / foolish, and your estate would be expected to pay to rebuild the station).
And Falstaff? Fort Wayne, Indiana. Any idea of the approximate dates of the match books? The Camel one looks to be from the 60's or maybe even 50's. Nice reflections. Your score is no where near an accurate reflection of the quality of this shot. RTFM people (or RTFD in this case)...

No... they usually don't.

I always ask myself "Could this meet the challenge description." and then vote on quality. In this case, it clearly said something that could be found at a gas station. Not only can Beer and Cigarettes be found there, but matches can as well. :)
