so here we are in California but this is what happened in Arizona-joel
Well it's been a while since I've spent some time on the blog. Here we are now in California at Mr. Anthony Casanova's place. Just finished up dinner and emailing images. It's been quite the journey through Arizona. Finally did some hiking through mountains. The images you see of the nest is a golden eagle. If you look closely you can see the eagle in the nest. I want to give a special thanks to Matt Kolacz and Angelique for providing the wood for the fire and a wonderful meat loaf and mash potato breakfast. Also a special thanks to Mr. Dan Foster for the wonderful night out in Phoenix and letting us crash at your place. Nothing like oysters on the half shell and escargot in Phoenix Arizona. Again sorry for leaving your front door wide open all day long. ha! We are in great spirits and ready for L.A. tomorrow morning. Thanks again to everyone who's following the blog. Keep checking as the journey just gets better and better. That's 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.
