Merry Christmas $2014 by joerayphoto
Merry Christmas $2014
Close to $2,014.00 in value and over 8 hours in wrapping these stupid things.  I'm sure it'll only take an hour for it all to be undone.  Anyone spend more than that this year?

New Wheels Edit
A friend of mine bought some new wheels for his Mustang.  The original image wasn't very flattering so I decided to spruce it up a bit.

Stocks used:
- Mountains: Stock: Desert Road
- Cloud reflections on the car: Beautiful Sunset
- Road image title "forever_by_night_fate_stock-d3k0dh8" but I cannot find it in her gallery
- Mustang image belongs to me

Thanks for looking. :D
SPRWN99 by joerayphoto
Originally, I expected to be asked what my license plate meant when I first got it but few people have.  Maybe it's because it looks like a state issue or because they're not that interested.  For those that do care, it means Supercharger WhiNe of my '99.  I figured it was clever that it rhymes.  What do you think?

As for this shot:
I wanted to capture the beauty of the sunsetting light bouncing off my car.  I'm thankful that the shadows aren't too dark and the whites weren't washed out (except for the sky).

There's not much to take pictures of unless you look around to find the beautiful things in life.
Spare Fuel Tank by joerayphoto
Spare Fuel Tank
When I shared this on Facebook, my mother made a comment asking if this was a spare fuel tank because of my turbo.  I car isn't turbo charged (yet) and that's just a watertower.  That would be a horrible design for a fuel tank anyway.  The center of gravity would make my car roll if I looked at it wrong.

I love photography and building things. Most of my gallery is made of up car photos because they are easy to come by and to work with.
Warning: I'm venting here but I could also use some advice.  Thanks in advance...

So I've been stressing over this for a couple days now and I'm trying to stop.  My wife is on some dumb cruise right now.  I miss her and I trust that she's not making any bad choices, but it's hard to think about her being far away without being able protect her.  She went with her cousin but we always go on vacation together.  This is the first time only one of us has left for vacation instead of the whole family.  I'm not jealous about going on the cruise.  Boats are cool for short periods of time, not a mobile hotel.  This is a two way street and I've gone to drag strips and car shows by myself, but those were for a couple hours, not a few days.  I keep getting angry at the fact that cell phone service is crap and expensive (my carrier doesn't offer any plans/support for the cruise line my wife is on).  I know it's not her fault but when I know she's on the other end of the planet and I can't call her, I get so frustrated.  I feel like preventing her from ever doing anything like this again, but that wouldn't make me happy if it was the other way around.  But when I try to think of a reason to travel, I can't think of a reason to do it alone.  I want my family there.  I can't think of an event further than 4 miles away that would exclude my family.  I'm sure all this stress is self-induced but I just want it to end.

I know this isn't exactly a social/blog website to some of you but I'd prefer a third person's perspective rather than getting family involved.  That's never a good thing.
