New lens, new location, same heart…

New lens, new location, same heart…

Alright, I’ll do it. Even after many months’ notice and ample time to decide whether or not I wanted to attend Formula Drift Texas 2019, I still deliberated over whether I can afford it. Luckily for me, my financial responsibility is perpetually at an all-time low. The numbers barely added up, but the heart said do it. Ticket booked. It’d work out, somehow…

Doubts kept popping up, but as the team met up at the airport, the banter started and I know I made the right decision- this is what I needed. A few hours later, I went from somehow being curled up in Basic Economy of a United Airlines 737, to almost having enough room to sleep starfish position in the back of a Dodge Caravan…and that’s how the FDTX2019 trip started…

It’s no secret that I fell off the photography train- acknowledged and accepted. Somehow, it felt right to push the bounds of the lack of financial responsibility and order a replacement lens for my dearly beloved Nikon. I thought (hoped) this trip could somehow rekindle me with something I was once so passionate about, no Ian- I’m not talking about you.

Lens in hand, no media credentials this time, just a seat on an almost painfully heated bleacher in the middle of Fort Worth. I was ready to try this again…and I’m glad I did…

In no particular order here are a handful of my favourite shots from the one spot I embedded my ass on in blistering Texas heat…photography bug bit and infected. I’m back!

1. Clouded Vision

2. On the run!

3. Frenemies- tough luck for Matt this round, but it’s all part of the sport.

4. Piotr Piotr, banana eater…errr?

5. MVP, he may not have hoisted a trophy this round- but it’s safe to say Fredric won the people’s hearts.

6. Can it shred? It will now… no matter what car he sits in he LITERALLY kills it. #NotEnoughStylePoints

7. It be like that sometimes…

8. On the grind. On track, off track, Worthouse Drift Team, IS the most clinical… #ChangeMyMind

9. Okay MAYBE, I should have chosen another spot to sit- this one’s on me.

10. A cold one with boys…
