The images we got from that night shoot, as well as those from the desert, were keepers. ‘Bangers’, as the kids like to say. But getting those shots sure as hell ruined more than a few good ride opportunities. Was it worth it? Looking at those pictures, I forget about the time spent hungry and sunburned, or cold and tired.
