RIDE WITH ME

We made some moves over the 4th of July weekend with our inaugural W&B Bike Night. Taking an evening ride through the Town, we stopped off at Surf Club and Morcom Park before settling in at the backyard boogie in the West. Thanks to Max, and Dispo Max, we have some pics to help tell the tale.

WHIPS ON WHIPS ON WHIPS

A new series from shooter Ian Flanigan captures the details of LA's vehicular community

Growing up watching the “#1 Stunna” video, I told myself I would one day have a collection of whips as illustrious as Baby’s. At 25, I’m still not even sniffing Turk, but despite the two cars I technically own totaling about 3 grand in value, I can still appreciate an icy one when I see it. Living in LA though, my whip envy turned pretty quickly to eye-rolling after witnessing a never-ending parade of leased stuntmobiles roll by.

Whips Two though, a recent series from our good friend Ian Flanigan takes a distinctive approach to LA’s vehicular community. Having already Los Angeles by skateboard, and occasionally snapping shots of the cars lining Downtown’s weathered streets, Ian decided to zoom in on a particular set of details that caught his eye. Narrowing the shots to car emblems and logos, Whips directs your focus to compositional choices, and the design elements of new and vintage cars. It’s not all luxury either, with subjects running the gamut from crispy new Bentleys to beat up ’80s Volkswagens, and everything in between. Like a bunch of Ian’s work, the series is playful and off-the-cuff observational–but it’s the attention to detail that makes it stick with you. Peep the collection below, and read our interview with Ian here.

    I like it. But what is the Z car? Is that a Datsun? A Mazda?
