This year's Red Bull Soapbox Racewas held in my backyard, the East Side of Providence, RI on College Hill. Last year I lived just a couple blocks down from this spot! It was an amazing time and I was lucky to be accompanied by two of my favorite new cameras: my Holga 120CFN and my brand new Diana+ from The Lomographic Society. There is no better way to capture these fanatics than with a Lomo camera!

I used my new Diana+ for the candid shots of the crews in the pits and my Holga with high speed film for the race shots. I got a lot of looks from photographers with their D-SLR's! The pit crews were very happy to pose for my unique cameras.

In this photo, typifying the creativity of the event, is team Dueces Wild, the 2007 Red Bull Soapbox Race 2nd Place winner. Can you imaging going down a 10% grade in this thing at 30 miles an hour?!?

Created using my brand new Diana+ with Rollei ScanFilm (iso 400). Negative scanned with an HP Scanjet 4890. No digital manipulation used!
