Motorvation 2013

Once again i headed down to what is Western Australia's premier car show. but this time i decided to buy a camping pass and stay for the weekend, although i didn't have time to get there on Friday, and running around on Saturday i only managed to arrive at 11:30am, so i missed Friday nights prelim burnouts and cruising but i thought i'd grab all of today's activities to make up for was about 31degreesC and the club tent had an air cooler in i didn't make it out as much as i thought i would.... really had no energy from doing long hours during the week. but that doesn't mean i didn't meet a few people and watch the cars cruising past our tent!

I intended to take some video with a friends go-pro, make a time lapse and some other stuff out on the track, but lethargy kicked in and i really CBF ;) with all that was happening i just didn't feel the love nor the inclination to go get the shots i wanted, pity cause there was a lot happening out there. but as i wasn't the only one with a camera shooting, i knew most shots wouldn't be missed, everyone has a camera these days, and will upload to FB or the like, so no point me busting my chops to get the same shots... think i lost my mo-jo a while ago.

stayed up till 1:30 Sunday morning and awoke around 8am for food etc. i did go out and get some night time shots before bed and then trolled around during the morning to see what else was cruising the 'plex. and as i didn't have a 'entrant' sticker for my car, i couldn't bring it in to load up all my crap till nearly 4pm. so basically just lounged around with the others and watched the crowds and cars cruise past the tent.. not a bad way to  take in a Sunday really! if i go again next year, i definatly want my own car in there to go cruising in  or at least release the boredom occasionally, and maybe get that camper trailer done so i have a proper bed and a place to store all my stuff. but you didn't come here to listen to me gripe about how many commodores there were or how many of them started to do burnouts in the pit area so they could get kicked out and go home early... so here's some photos... all the rest of them are at Autolifeperth's website, as well as a page just with MY PHOTOS  go check them all out ;)

Till the next time,, oo-roo. Bruce.

Hot summer nights 2013

Another year done and  to bring in the new year there's no better way than an ol skool car show!  and for the third year i went to the Cranksters run event "Hot summers night"
 unfortunately i didn't have my dodge there as i still haven't fixed the engine yet (soon i hope) so i just rocked up in my bunky datsun and parked it well away from the cool cars ;) did the usual of talking to people i haven't seen for a while more than take photos but this is the time to catch up with like minded car folks.

 I have posted all the photos and a proper write up on the website for all to see, so this is just a taster for those who visit my page, so please go there and check it out!!!

On another note i'd like to take this time to say thanks to Jay Fitzgerald of 'Tech Toyz' for building me my new computor, it's only taken me 2yrs to get my shit together and save some coin and finally order one custom built by Jay, and i must say, it's a ripper!!! for the geeks out there its basically a gaming PC, the specs are..

. Intel i7-3770k 3.5ghz CPU
. 16gb DDR3 1600mhz ram
. Nvidia GTX650 2gb graphics card
. Asus Z77 pro4-M (ASRock) motherboard
. 240gb SSD
. Gigabit LAN, HD audio, USB 3.0 +DVD r/wr

Mmm purdy
this stuff is the shiz!

and as a result i bought the new Lightroom 4.0 for it, so i now have the top performing computor to edit all these photos, without all the lag like the old one did, dunno why i waited so long to upgrade..oh yeah..i was broke HA! but seriously i should have done this sooner considering i edit not just car photos, but also the odd wedding and model shoots (which i can now start doing again!) i needed a computer with the power and ability to actually handle the files i upload and to do them justice.
So for 2013 i have the tech ability to go further than i ever have before... now if i can just make more time to actually do some of these shoots, i'll be a happy man ;)

till next time... Bruce.
