Wednesday June 22nd, the group was able to do ride alongs with photographers from the Times-Picaune, the local paper for New Orleans. It was an amazing experience and both John Muccusker and Chris Granger were so kind as to have us tag along with them, and for that we can not thank them enough.
The above photo was from my ride along with Chris. It was unfortunate that the rally he was assigned to photograph did not happen but he still was able to make the ride along interesting by taking us to one of the many above ground graveyards in the city.
After the day with the photographers the group broke free from the instructors and went to dinner at the Cafe Mesparo right in the French Quarter.
The next day a few of us got up bright and early for the sunrise shoot at Lake Pontchartrain. Out the door by 5:20am so we could catch the sun just as it gave us the perfect light.
Right off the Lake we found what was left of a restaurant that once sat on the lake. Only the supports sticking out of the water and the railing leading to the front door still stand.
