As a big motocross fan…I saw picture on Instagram of the Fox Headquarters building in Irvine and had to take a short drive to see it. Pretty cool design! I’d like to grab this shot at nite as well. Fox Head, Inc. or simply known as Fox is privately owned action sports and clothing brand founded in 1974. Fox designs, develops and distributes clothing and accessories to over fifty countries primarily focusing on motocross. Inside you can find a store with clothing and MX gear. One more shot from inside the store…
One morning while HDR’ing here in SoCal…I was driving back home and decided to stop by Old Town Irvine. Here you can find a couple of cool older buildings that have been updated. Here is some info from the web:
Old Town Irvine stands today as a testament to the rich agricultural past of what has become one of California’s most heavily urban counties. Founded in 1887 as the distribution and storage center of the 125,000-acre Irvine ranch, Old Town Irvine was to develop over the years a bean and grain storage warehouse (1895) and granary (1947) known as the Irvine Bean and Grain Grower’s Building, a blacksmith’s shop (1916), a hotel (1913), a general store (1911), and an employees’ bungalow (1915). All of these structures have been rehabilitated for commercial uses and their exteriors have been painstakingly maintained.
If you are ever in SoCal…in the middle of LA and SD you can find the city of Irvine. This is where you can find the cool outdoor shopping location called the Irvine Spectrum. Great stores and restaurants!! I have passed it about a billion times and finally decided to photograph the ferris wheel. This was a long exposure. I did however get talked to by security. Unfortunately it is private property, therefore, no tripod setups for photos. But one loophole is that if you are taking shots of your family, they cannot stop you. I had my little one stand in front and “photoshopped” her out. =) Have fun!
