Some have asked if it was planned or a lucky photo opportunity. I did plan it. As a professional photographer that is what I do. I got the idea while sitting at a traffic light. In front of me was a dog in the back of a pick up truck. I envisioned a vintage red truck and began searching for one. Found a couple that weren’t quite right. One wasn’t even drivable. Then one day I saw this truck drive through an intersection in Raleigh. So I followed him. When he stopped at the next traffic light, I got out, ran up to him and told him my idea. He was all for it. I had already scouted locations and had one that was perfect. My friend Maggie had a Dalmatian. Now everything was in place so we set it up for one Sunday afternoon. There you have it.
