Another early morning sunrise shoot, up at 6:30 to break camp and head back into Memphis. We got to use the ladder today for the first time. It really saved me on the angels i needed to get. Thanks dad for providing this. The shoot went well and after words we set up shop at a picnic table to edit and make some instant coffee. The people in memphis were very kind and we made some new friends. Last night we played a little soccer with some people for exercise. It was a pretty good time. Back on the road now heading to pineville, LA. We have traveled 1,285 miles so far and about to go 400 more. Keep in touch and check out the pics i will be uploading some time this afternoon. 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.
