Its been a while since the last post. I’ve been busy working but I also managed to take a weekend off for myself to catch up with some old friends in Sydney. It’s easy to get caught up and forget to update the blog . In all honesty, there hasn’t been much to post about. I did however manage to drive to Sydney for WTAC 2013. The 600km round trip wasn’t very noteworthy. I did pass through some of the areas where the Sydney bushfires were, but otherwise, no AC and cruising at 4000RPM, the 3-4hr drive seemed longer than it was.
As for the event, it was well worth it. Time-Attack cars, drift events, show cars. It was a great weekend. Not to mention the parking lot 😀 Oh, and Nob Taniguchi was there. Unfortunately, I didn’t get the chance to take a photo with him 😦 Anyway, here are some of the photos I took.

As Mr GV134 mentioned, I was back in Sydney for a week a while ago. Haven’t shot cars properly for a while now, especially since I’ve sold all of my DSLR gear. Lately (for the past year) I’ve been shooting with my Fujifilm x100. Its been good to carry around the road and on overseas trips instead of having to lug around a heavy bag of camera gear. However, one biggest draw back is without a doubt the lack of interchangeable lens. Not so much of a problem when shooting portraits, but a huge problem when shooting landscape and automotive photography as a 35mm is just not wide enough no matter how far to step back. May consider an upgrade later in the year, who knows? Anyhow, I made do with the lack of gear in this photoshoot and as usual made up by doing heaps of post-processing. Enjoy!
p.s.. May post some before and after processing previews in a later post!
