Hmm, boost. Nothing like loud "PSSST" from the blow-off valve.

Nothing like the roar of 500+ HP under to hood of a muscle car!

OR

The sweet sounds of serenity as you pedal down a beautiful road on a nice day!

popped up 8 days later, laid on the floor, everything was gutted. Lost about 15k in mods in that car. Gotta love insurance, they don't cover $hit.

I was running 26psi on 91 octane "daily driven" and 31psi on 110octane when I made the 409hp
Not bad from a stock 2.0 liter 4 banger huh

'97 FIA-GT at laguna seca. i'm very proud to have been there. not many people in the US can claim to have seen a mclaren F1 in competition.


2001 long beach gp. was lucky enough to have pit passes that year. this is alex zanardi giving me a thumbs-up when i took his picture. actually, he was just doing a radio check, but still.

I went through a surfing photography phase last year. The action shots are fun, and when you catch a nice swell at The Wedge, it's quite unique. But, for some reason, this was one of my favorite shots.

To continue the car-related theme . . .

Long Beach GP in 2005 . . .








D1GP in 2005 -




Custome brake setup on my old car -





And to the un-car related, out of all the places I've visited, Sitka is one of my favorite to capture pictures in -

These are from Jill's preschool field trip last year to Brookside Gardens Wings of Fancy:

This is an owl butterfly.



And these are two monarch chrysalis.
