I just pulled the trigger on a certified 2014 Focus ST (ST3 w/nav & moonroof) with... wait for it... 515 miles.
The BMW i3 is arguably one of the most important cars the company has ever produced. It also has a lot of brand heritage to live up to. Is the Bavarians' first big push into electric cars worth the hype?
Just RSVP'd to test-drive an i3 at the dealership where I bought my car. I'm not going to be in the market for 2 years, but if you're curious about the car and there's anything you want me to look out for, let me know in the comments!
I took this while digging my 128i out of the snow in Chicago last week. I had to be pushed out of my parking spot every time I parallel-parked for two days in a row. Shout-out to all the strangers who helped me!
Dream no more.
I went to Kanye's Yeezus tour in Chicago this week. I shot the whole thing on my iPhone 5s. Two things stood out:
Lamborghini V12. The 700hp powerplant of an Aventador LP 700-4, to be exact.
I was walking to dinner today when an anti-war protest blocked my path out of the newsroom. It's sort of a stretch, but Syria is generally considered to be one of the top-25 most corrupt countries in the world. And if all of the rebels' claims about human rights abuses are true, then Assad's government is a pretty…
I shoot pictures for the TV station I work for every day. I also grab a lot of street stills around Chicago (especially downtown) on my spare time. Here are a few of my favorites from the last few weeks.
I helped a friend shoot a punk show at a Chicago music club tonight (Vamos @ The Empty Bottle, if you're wondering). He's shot more bands than I have, but I was a little intimidated by the band and crowd. They're all way cooler than I am.
What do you do when you're at an airshow but only have a fixed 35mm-equivalent lens? Crop or make your shots about the people watching.
I went wine-tasting with my friends on Michigan's Old Mission peninsula this past week. One winery had colored parasols intended for bright sunny days, but I couldn't pass them up as a fun photo tool.
Aston Martin is teaming up with British pram-maker Silver Cross to build a limited-edition stroller. Perhaps the Cygnet isn't lowering Aston's CAFE average enough.
Changes coming, eh? Distract yourself with this!
Thinking about buying a new car is weird. Here's how it's gone so far:
I don't know much about the used Miata market, but this HAS to be a pretty Nice Price.
Jalops! I would like your car-buying advice.
I woke up to a text message this morning from my Ford engineer friend telling me that he can get me X-Plan pricing on a new Focus ST. I think that might just seal the deal. The dealer is going under sticker with the ST2 package.
