Default Today was a super great day for me!!

Maan.... What a day... Got word tat I got my dreamjob this morning- I'm pumped ! I'll be doing graphic design/product design/ photography at an advertising company in Ft. Worth. Went and quit my BS job today and bought some stuff while I was there. I got the camera I've been wanting for ages- the Canon 300D- so that's 2 things. Then after all that, FIS dynoed my car and it made 310WHP/345TQ!!!! Today was a good day...


Here are a couple pics I took today with my new camera.

Ok, those pics look awesome. Is it the camera, photographer, or both? If it is both what is the ratio?

haha! hmmm... Well, my bachelor's in graphic design tells me it's the photographer... but it may be a bit of both... The camera before was extremely limiting (Nion Coolpix 4300), this one just lets me do the kind of shots I've always wanted to do.

It's in the first post- a 300D, (Digital Rebel 6.3MP).

I went on a field trip to downtown Ft. Worth and took a couple more pics, let me post 'em.

Just a retune on the broken in motor and a different boost controller.

Thanks for the congrats- no one knows the crap I've been through in retail. Not my bike, a friend's- he just got it yesterday brand new. I'll be picking up a new one in Jan. after all the '05s come out. My 250 will be for sale soon.

250 what?.. just curious... the little Ninja 250? or a dirtbike?... or something far cooler like an NSR250? (I'm into the odd-ball grey-market bikes, so I gotta ask )

Thanks guys! That bike shot was pretty interesting, it was a pretty quick 'shoot'. The Photoshopping only took about 5min too. I guess when you know a program so well... I wish that darn truck and those other cars wernt there though. It looks even better printed 8x12 on Kodak Royal matte!

Yeah, its always interesting in traffic when someone thinks my TZR (not the bike in the pic) is a glorified scooter, until I wind it up and rip away in a cloud of blue Motul haze. Stinkwheels rule!

Congrats on your new job, your new toy, and the printout of the HP & torque power bands you should frame.
