Random Snap: Sleeping NSX.

As I was getting ready to leave the Convention Center in Edison, NJ, home of Wek’Fest East, Tae from SPS garage came by and urged me to come check out his car. “You won’t regret it”, were his words. When I came around the corner, I was greeted by a slumbering NSX tucked neatly away under a truck trailer. NSX’s are already pretty low to the ground, but lowered ones are on skateboard status.

Don’t worry, more to come!

Random Snap: Pit Stop.

One of the joys of owning a Pit Bull is that you get to see how happy they are when they’re near people. Takata’s whole butt moves from side to side as she wags her little puppy tail when people approach her ready to pet her soft coat. Likewise, Joy’s red nose Pit Bull, an extra large boy named Turbo, is always happy to meet new people, and especially, kids.

Despite what mainstream media would like to tell you, Pit Bulls are great with kids, and were even used as nannies before they were used as status symbols by not-so-savory types. So while I was relaxing under the IAG tent during this past Sunday’s College Park Tuning Springtime event, I noticed a little girl that was so excited to ask Joy for permission to pet the dog that was three times her size. She gave him some affection, and in typical Pit Bull fashion, Turbo loved every second, wagging his tail and smelling the little girl’s hands. I managed to snap off this pic while holding Takata with my other hand.

Pit Bulls - One of the greatest breeds

Just wanted to share a moment that made me smile.

More photos coming soon of this event!

Random Snap: Cherry Blossoms in Maryland.

I was driving home one late afternoon, and as I was pulling up to my house, I noticed the trees looked much different. I parked. I got out, and stared at these fluffy white, pink and yellow trees. What were once just a bunch of sad looking twigs that were lined up along the Inner Harbor in Baltimore were now fully bloomed Cherry Blossoms that adorned the streets and brought so much more color.

I decided to run inside my place, grab my camera and take a few photos of these trees. I parked the daily along the street where I take Takata for walks along the Harbor.

Baltimore, MD

I think this week or next I’m taking Takata and maybe Turbo to the centennial Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, DC. If you’re in the DC/MD/VA area, you should definitely check it out!

I’m starting to really like Maryland.

Random Snap: Downtown Baltimore.

I don’t really ever take pictures of any of my cars, but I snapped this pic two nights ago as I was wandering around aimlessly in downtown Baltimore near the Inner Harbor where I currently live. I then let fellow protographer Khiem Pham make a quick edit, and this is the result.

Yes, I know. I drive a hairdresser’s car, but it gets great gas mileage!
