The previous print I offered on eBay was sold so I am offering another, this one is of a crab shanty in Maryland. If you ever come to Maryland then it is an absolute requirement that you enjoy the crab cakes for which the state is known.

The Bromoil prints I am offering on eBay give 100% of the proceeds to the American Red Cross. I pay shipping, eBay and Paypal fees.

If you have ever wanted a Bromoil print and would like to see the money go to a good cause then please consider donating.

Here is the eBay link: cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=251180617181

Happy 24th anniversary to the Hubble Space Telescope! This colorful mosaic of a small portion of the Monkey Head Nebula unveils a collection of carved knots of gas and dust silhouetted against glowing gas. The cloud is sculpted by ultraviolet light eating into the cool hydrogen gas.
