Roadtrip 2013 – Meghan
After completing the rather good morning shoot with Shlee, I set off to see Meghan for the afternoon session.
It did not start well as a small navigational error on my part saw the trip taking a lot longer than it should have. The only plus was that Meghan was also running late so it had no impact on our plans.
However, the weather did !
We arrived at the location for the shoot to be met by a storm brewing. Me being the eternal optimist felt we should forge ahead and wait it out – see if it would blow over.
I was wrong.
We ended up running the gauntlet of chicken egg size hail stones, and insane lightning. We were pleased to find the car intact – this changed as we drove for cover – but less pleased to find no nearby shelter.
It was flooded roads, pelting hail and near zero visibility until we reached a mall with under cover parking. That’s where we took refuge until the storm past.
What did we get for our trouble ?
A badly cracked windshield, numerous dents in the car body and a handful of test photos that I was not particularly pleased with.
Such a shame as Meghan looked amazing, her outfits were stunning, I just ran out of luck…
Taken under a tarpaulin covered amphitheater, The tension was visible in her face, and in my less than enthusiastic shooting.
