Back when I was putting miles on the Evo to break in the new engine, part of my travels brought me back to Santa Barbara. I don’t usually get out there much, but it always feels relaxing spending time there since it’s much more chill than Los Angeles. This was also during some big fires east of the area so in one photo the plume of smoke can be seen rising over downtown. After getting there I took a break to just walk around downtown and shoot some of the area on Velvia. I always love Velvia for scenery, it’s going to be a sad day when Fuji also decides to stop producing it.
Out of the slide film that I finally developed there were a number of shots from the end of the Evo upgrade project. I believe these were all after the new engine went in and were during the break-in period, but before Cam was out here to shoot and test the car as well.
