This is my third year shooting Barrett Junction. I woke up Saturday morning to pick up some of the boys and wait for a pack of cars that were heading to Symbolic Motors Cars and Coffee. Check out the blog post for photos. After shooting the billion dollars worth of cars I headed down to pick up my free tent from the Resolve to be Ready – Disaster Prep App campaign. Not a bad little tent, and perfect timing for Barrett Junction. We finally get to the hill and are able to shoot a few runs before the sun goes down and everyone heads to the Barrett Junction Cafe for dinner and camping. After dinner, I set up camp and my tripod for some star trails. While I let the camera run, we sat in the STi and watched The Big Lebowski. After the movie was over, I packed up all my stuff and started prepping for Sunday. We shot on Hwy 94 for a bit (blog post to come) on Sunday morning, which ended up taking up some of our time shooting the race. We still got some good photos in the end.
I started my weekend off watching the 5 freeway, waiting for some supercars to pass on their way down to Symbolic Motors Cars and Coffee. Once I spotted them, I tried to jump on the freeway but caught a red light. A stop light has never seemed so long… We catch up to them and a couple of the guys shoot some rolling shots while I was stuck driving. The drive to Symbolic was a short little jaunt. Next thing you know we are pulling up and I somehow end up parking right in the front of the entrance. Thought it was funny seeing all those cars pass my dirty STi. Once most of the cars were gone, we started on our way to our next destination, Barrett Junction!
