This particular photo was hard to get since Ernie Ventenilla parked his Infiniti G35x pretty much in the center of the lot where most of the traffic was concentrated. As we were attempting to clear the area, we were met with a little hostility Ė but itís all for the art! This happens more than you might imagine.

This particular time, as I was trying to clear the area for the picture, a young man looked at me incredulously as if he was asking why was I trying to get a picture of Ernieís car when a myriad of other randomly slammed imports were driving through the lot. I guess he was more interested in some of the more gaudy bling driving by. Maybe itís not for some, but I enjoy the classic and simple styling of a luxury car. This G35x actually has one-off prototype coilovers, so itís not very common to see one of these lowered with wheels that are flush. Nice job Ernie!

Nice Ernie! Congrats man

I know what their talking about in that article too. I swear sometimes it's like people are standing by waiting for you to get framed juuuuust right... and then JUMP INTO THE SHOT!



I've more than once been crouched in that weird "photographer stance" (Marcus will know what I'm talking about) be framing a shot, and then have some guy walk RIGHT in front of me, and had to stand up abruptly, and shoot the offending passerby a look of "out of my shot, or you die"
Sometimes you got to be an a$$ for the sake of the shot!
