This is a different look from my portfolio photography session with DeAna. We had a two car convoy as we went from site to site in BeeBe Arkansas. DeAna's fuel tank was on empty so I waited while she stopped to fill up with gasoline. I spotted an interesting auto repair shop across the street and walked over to see if the owner would give us permission to use the outside of his building as a background.
We went over after she finished fueling her car and did a few quick photos before moving on to a fall color scene. She did an excellent job of looking into the direct afternoon sun so I could capture this image. Arkansas's small towns have so many interesting locations for photography, many of them with great character! I may have to go back to this repair shop for one of my senior sessions. It would be fun to do a few inside the facility too.
