Sometime between 5:50-6:00 in the morning, I woke to coffee brewing and bump sounds in the garage.  Within seconds I remembered it was Saturday, lake day and picture taking day.  Lori and her new friends Aaron and Robert were shooting a feature on Bondorella for the Hagerty Classic Cars series, “Why I Drive.” 

5:30am, maybe 6:00.

Later in the day

Lori drove Bondorella to Pioneertown while Aaron and Robert followed her around in a Dodge Caravan full of cameras.  I messed around at Two Crows.

After lunch of Kasa Market burritos…

We were off to a dry lakebed North of Joshua Tree for more driving shots and a perfect desert sunset.

Lake Break

What’s a lake without water? A dry lake, but this dry lake has water and a boat. You can’t beat that.

They set the stage for Robert’s mad drone skills.

Soft landings make Robert happy.

Back to lake, Bondorella, and sunsets.

Like a hayride but with tumbleweeds.

I don’t remember the sun being this big or white, but here it is.

And just like that, it’s gone.

Thank you Aaron, Robert, and Lori for letting me tag along (and for lunch from Kasa Market).  I had a great time and enjoyed seeing the results of skilled planning, sound process, and absolute professionalism.  Click below to learn more about this talented trio.
