Down on the Bayou
Hey ya'll. Joel here coming to you from Lake Charles Louisiana. Stayed an extra day at our campsite to relax and edit photos. Sent our first 10 sights to korea for review this afternoon. Everything is going great. Good eats around these parts. Weather is beautiful, lizards are abundant, and still no signs of alligators. Eric is so worried about alligators. You should have seen him during the night shoot last night. Hope everyone enjoys the new photos. Click for larger view. Thats all from me. Signing off
Close friend and fellow photographer, Eric Jennings, and I created the blog, Wake Up It’s Your Turn to Drive, during a photography assignment in 2010. Eric and I were hired by Inire Inc., a multimedia company out of Seoul, South Korea to document and photograph every Korean War Memorial in the United States and Canada. 2010 marked the 60th year anniversary of the Korean War and to show their appreciation to all who came to their aid, South Korea released a 3 book series of photographs documenting Korean War Memorials in allied countries around the world. The book is simply titled Korean War Memorials in Pictures.
The original purpose of this blog was to show the world a passenger seat view of the work we were doing and also our experiences as we traveled throughout North America. Eric and I were truly blessed to have been given such an amazing assignment. It was an eye opening experience for two burgeoning photographers. Wake Up It’s Your Turn to Drive is a blog about our adventures but also about our development in the profession of photography.
