Pics in the Hills.

Despite global warming I decided to go out and do a photoshoot. unfortunately Ive had this planned for several days and the weather would not let up... SO I braved the elements and the rain held back until we were up in the clouds.




















i have more coming eventually i took this with my little point and shoot. A friend of mine has a canon rebel of some sort and im sure it took some much better pics. Enjoy.

Very nice.

I'm really drawn to the next to the last one: Kinda dark and moody, but with some nice contrasts. Actually---I think I tend to like almost any Boxster pic with rustic wooden fencing in the background.

Nice pics. I noticed the Mustang, it looks very similar to a Cobra I had several years back.

It might have been the rain that kept you from going fast... or maybe it was that jackass in the mustang in front of you. Guy can't turn for ****************...

<---- I'm not sure what this is but I like it

not sure where Julian CA is but it was basically accross the road from Laguna Seca... and thanks it was a good time. seeing my wife hold on to the door handle scared was funny. i tried to assure her we were not even speeding or pushing it. but to no avail.
