The Infamous Tornado Photo [08.14.12]
The photo was taken with Ryan Burkett strapped to the trailer to get a rolling shot of John Norris' Chevy S10. L.b. was driving the truck pulling the trailer. Usually I do a few behind the scenes shots and post them up to my personal Facebook account. I edited the photo and remembered that yesterday there was a Tornado Watch out for where I live.. we didn't exactly go out and shoot at the most perfect time; raining, windy, and thunder/lighting all around us. But we needed to get this photo done and the storm was moving off in the distance.
With all that, I thought it would be funny to photoshop a tornado in the background... purely for shits and giggles. I didn't know that this photo would blow up and be posted on many Automotive Facebook Fan Pages, especially since it was on my personal Facebook only. I only did this for some laughs from my friends... I actually thought it was a very poor photoshop. This photo had thousands of views and 'Likes' on Facebook. After several inquiries for wallpaper sized downloads, I decided to upload this photo to Flickr. Enjoy.
*Note: The road had little to no traffic.
