Yesterday, I photographed Coach Dan Hawkins of the CU Buffs at Historic Folsum Field for an 5280 Magazine.
After we loaded up my stylin' grip truck at the studio, I turned on the engine and something sounded terribly wrong. One quick peak under the truck and it was obvious that someone cut the catalytic converter out of my exhaust pipe! I called my mechanic and he said it wouldn't hurt to drive to our location 45 miles away in Boulder. However, it's costing me $270 to fix it so some crack-head can get a $20 fix. It really pisses me off. Word has it that catalytic converters are being stolen and shipped to Mexico, where the platinum is removed with a chemical process. Word on the street is the platinum is selling for something crazy, like $2k and ounce.
Anyway the shoot went well. Thanks Randall for the productions stills!
