From winter to summer now back to spring
Hello friends and family. Joel here coming to you from Missoula Montana. This trip has been quite the adventure. As you can see through photographs that California was amazing and soon to come will be Oregon and Washington. I tell you what, you couldn't pick a better place to spend earth day then Olympia Washington. When we arrived there was a earth day parade. Procession of the Species. It was amazing there were so many people and they were all dressed up in crazy costumes. I was jealous, I really wanted to dress up and participate. You will see these photo's as soon as we hit the road and I can edit in the car. We are on our way back east and this is a very good feeling. We will be pushing it harder than ever as the end of this month is creeping up on us and we still have the entire east coast to conquer. We just got another oil change and we are at 8,000 miles into the trip. This tells us that we are about half way according to our 16,000 mile estimate. Keep following and leave us some comments on the photos. It's nice to hear some feedback. Thats it for now. This is Joel 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.
