Monster Jam

Essay 506 • Sep 11th 2022

I grew up going to Monster Jam as a kid, so when I saw it was coming to LA I knew I had to relive my "7 year-old boy" memories.

I made sure to go early to people watch and see all the trucks up close before the show. I loved seeing all the families and how small some of the kids were compared to the tires.

The time came to find our seats, and we enjoyed popcorn and beer as I shot a role of cinestill 800, watched in amazement as drivers took turns launching their rigs into the sky.

10/10 experience, would do again.
