Chillen like a Nashvillen
Hello everyone. We are now in Nashville, TN and it's not under water any more! Things have been going well and we've been working non stop. Took a little detour today and stop by where Johnny Cashes old house was. I say was because it's just the remains of the home. Apparently one of the members from the Bg's bought Cash's house and at some point it caught on fire and burnt to the ground. It was still cool to see. In the past three day's we have completed 7 memorial shoots located through out Michigan, Indiana, and Ohio. As the miles grow the the amount of shooting grows as well. I will keep posting photographs when i get the time so keep on following. Thats all for tonight I will have more from Nashville soon.
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.
