Over the last 3 years, I have become increasingly detached from cars, and more so, my photography. A lot of things have changed, and this includes every aspect of my life. I have moved countless times, taken new promotions at work along with new and more demanding responsibilities. I took up mountain biking last year, which I turned out to be decent at, (took second place at US Cross Country Nationals last summer.) coming of the high of my mountain bike season, I was later hit by a car while out on my road biking causing a number of injuries. Anyways, as I sit here, thinking about things and looking back at what photography and cars meant to me, I am making the choice to return. 

I sent out some messages earlier this week and was picked up by a couple Formula Drift drivers and a competing team within Rally America. I went to the Oregon Trail stage of Rally America last week, I went as just a spectator to see old friends and take in the whole experience. All in all it made me realize how much I missed all of this. When I look back at my beginnings, it was my Subaru that started all of this, the photos, the traveling, the desire to be inspired by cars and the people involved with them. Two years ago I blew the head gasket on my WR Blue STi, this car has been with me for 8 years, and as of recently had been sitting for 2 years locked in a garage. As of last month UPS delivered 5 rather large shipments of all new go fast parts to rebuild the car and turn it into the monster I always wanted it to be. Also yesterday I made the impulse purchase of buying another STi from a friend. This car is located in LA and I will be picking up in a few weeks. I will have camera in hand for this adventure and I'm also going to photograph a RWB Porsche. So yes I am coming back to photos and cars, and not only am I coming back, but I am coming out swinging. So as always, a big thank you, to each and everyone of you that takes the time to read my articles, look at my photos and comment on these things. 

So guys, big things in the works. Photos of some of my cars, I have amassed quite a few in the time I've been gone. and some race cars in the future.
