Seascapes & Cityscapes - A Contemporary Photo Class Project

My Contemporary Photography class has quickly become my favorite class this semester. One of the biggest reasons being that every week we have to go out and shoot. It doesn't have to be anything in particular, but our professor urges us to try and let what's discussed in class inspire us. This is the first time during my college education that I'm been able to take such a class and I couldn't be happier. The images below are mostly from my week 3 set. My favorite so far, and the hardest to shoot due to the incredibly cold weather. For those curious about location. The Seascapes where taken at Hampton Beach, NH and the Cityscapes in Boston.

A Day's Journey - HKS Japan Headquarters

When you think of tuning industry innovators, there are a few specific names that come to mind. Surely HKS - the big kahuna of them all - is one of those names. Seeing what goes on behind it's secretive doors is a gearhead's dream, one which a rare furtunate few get to realize. It's hard for me to truly express how I felt that day, how special it was, and how just outright lucky I was to be able to see in detail everything that goes on in HKS' impressive operation.

5:00am Tokyo time, I wake up, still way to early to get ready - so I decide to kill sometime by taking in what was one of the most beautiful sunrises I've ever seen.
