BACK IN THE PALOUSE
If you really want a change of experience, and you live near Seattle, one option is to take a 4-hour trip east to the wheat fields of the Palouse – but don’t delay. This year’s crop will be cut in a couple of weeks. Continue reading “”

Well, I ventured out the other day to fly my DJI drone. It lost connection with my controller, hit a tree, and fell 75 feet to the ground. Fortunately, the only things that broke were the four propellers, which are easily replaceable. Believe me, flying a drone is not for the faint of heart! Continue reading “”
Tracy Chapman broke the airwaves in April 1988 with this song and others on her self-titled album. Singles from the record, like “Fast Car” and “Baby Can I Hold You” are still relevant today. The CD, or better yet, the record or the elusive 12″ single discs, are audiophile grade music. Check it out. Continue reading “”
1917 & FORD V FERRARI
Is Roger Deakins the best cinematographer working today?
Here are some stills from the movie 1917 that he shot with Sam Mendes directing. Mostly one-take in low-contrast light and period muted color, it covers a 24 hour period in 2 hours. I saw it in a L.A. movie theatre yesterday. Continue reading “”

ON THE BEACH
So what’s the best Neil Young album?
For me, it has to be 1974’s On The Beach.
It encapsulates the NY ethos most succinctly, without calling attention to itself, plus it’s remained topical for decades. Continue reading “”
I’ve just seen what has to be one of the best documentaries ever made, especially when it comes to extreme sports and lifestyle. It’s the 2018 film Andy Irons: Kissed by God. Continue reading “”
Today, this blog celebrates its tenth year on the endless wire – pre-Instagram. Thanks to all for visiting this site and letting me share my life with you.
With an average of one new blog post every 5 days and an Instagram site now flourishing (@cars.randywells), it’s been an extremely satisfying last couple of years. It certainly helps me to keep writing!
Now, I just gotta keep up those New Year’s resolutions… Personally, I can’t wait for the 2020s.
This camera I find very interesting. I’ve been shooting with a Leica since 1979, but switched my SLRs to Canon in the ’90s when Leica discontinued their R line. I have continued to use the Leica M and Q models for my personal work. Continue reading “”
SAFARI 911 BUILDS
After completing features on Rothsport Racing’s Safari 911s in print and film, and seeing what they could do, I was convinced. This is the ultimate answer to an off-road Porsche. And it is. If you want to actually finish the Baja 500 or Mexican 1000. Continue reading “”
LOOK WHAT YOU MADE ME DO
This has to be one of the lamest song titles in all of pop culture. Completely anti-Gene Smith philosophy. The reality is, unless you are being forced with bodily harm, nobody makes you do anything. Continue reading “”
