I was going to name it the Illest store opening, but I didn’t actually go into the store to check it out. There was a line outside all day and I hate lines so I didn’t bother. I’ll probably check it out some other day as I’m not a huge fan of Illest or their products.

I started playing around with this shot and ended with this Initial D (manga) looking shot.

Went around Little Tokyo looking for food
Tried Pinkberry for the first. Conclusion = Pinkberry sucks
Walked around Little Tokyo for a couple hours checking out cars
Really getting addicted to the whole HDR thing at the moment
Played with the Initial D style again
Initial D Nissan Juke. I can’t believe anyone actually bought this hideous crap.

Nice red 350Z rolling

After we got sick of waiting for the line to die down at Illest, we headed over to Irvine to eat at House of Shabu Shabu. It’s been a while since I came here, but they still recognized me.
