    so i recently took a quick XC trip back to school from maine to arizona, and wasnt sure where to post the pics. upon realizing that i did so in my 2nd gen, i figured this was as good a place as any. unfortunately, i didnt really start taking pics until around South Dakota, but i feel like the ones i did take came out pretty well. let me know what you think!

    heres the (slightly longer than normal) route across America. wanted to stop a few places, ended up in chicago, mount rushmore, denver, moab, UT, and the grand canyon.

    Great pics. If your ever up this way I could make your truck look like this. Of course I couldn't make in to a bike or a car, but you know what I mean... ha

    Nope, just good ol pro photo work. They are both lit with strobes and lots of oversized bounce and fill cards. Those shots are basically straight out of camera. Very little post work. Here's another... a bit smaller version ha!
