Moving forward through Cali
Hello friends and family, joel here coming to you from San Francisco CA. Things are going great. We busted out three locations today and I'm definitely looking forward to getting to our campground and taking a shower. I want to thank Naomi for showing us about the best time you can have in Bakersfield CA. I will be uploading some great pictures from our experience there soon. Eric is driving at the moment and we are about to cross the Golden Gate bridge. So far I've only found one city in California that I really enjoyed. Los Osos CA is awesome! Even though we got a flat tire there it was still the most interesting city I've seen in Cali. Every road had a really wide bike lane and there were so many people riding. I think i might just have to move there when the trip is over. I'm hoping to get pictures uploaded tonight and we should be in Sacramento by tomorrow afternoon. Thats all for now. 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.
