What is the Mayday Garage x Wekfest Pre Meet?  When and where did it even take place?  Check out words and photos from one of the best ricer meets ever thrown by Mayday Garage.

Fujifilm X100T Review - The Perfect Everyday Camera?

Why am I reviewing a 2 yrs old camera?  To be honest, I'm always wanting to try out different cameras, lenses, and even smart phones.  I came across the Fujifilm X-series because a friend uses the XT-2, but that option was far too pricey.  Now I'm looking at a Fujifilm X100F... pretty much the same specs as the Fujifilm X100T other than the processor, Autofocus (AF), [...]

Back in March of 2017, I took a short trip out to HKG /Taipei during my break from projects and gigs.  The plan was to do some editorial coverage of 1013mm's Copaze x 1013MM Autoshowoff Car Meet 2017 event in HKG during my visit.  Unfortunately, the coverage never went through and I'm able to do whatever I want with the images.  Unfortunately, that's #freelancelife.
