Street Sweeping to Cutting Meat

By  | 

 This day happened because Dax from the Street Sweeper Gang saw my photo of John’s Integra on Instagram. Dax was going to be in town for Formula Drift Long Beach, so he wanted to shoot John’s car before FDLB. In Royal Origin fashion, we caravanned with 3 slammed cars to meet up with Dax.

We found this small strip of the highway that overlooked the freeway. It made for some crazy long exposure freeway shots.

Wish there were more cars on this freeway.

Stole some light from Dax while he was shooting. I even timed my camera at the same time as him. Haha.

Before Dax was ready to shoot, Kevin and I played around with light painting and got this pretty cool shot. I had to leave right after the shoot to go meet up with Yogi and Taryn. Taryn was visiting all the way from New Zealand and Yogi wanted to show her some neat food places.

It also turned into a mini car meet with some familiar faces like Daniel’s STI.

Random van. We weren’t too sure whose car it belongs to.

Front lip/bumper is a bit crazy for my taste, but I definitely can appreciate the work put into this xB.
