The Mercedes AMG story from Palm Beach runs today. You should really pick up the paper, though. I got blasted across the whole cover of the second section, and I looooove this picture, the one they used on that cover.
Their were a pair of those cranes hanging out at the track on the parking lot. They didn't care a bit that we were near them, but they were on the wrong side of the car to get pics. You had to shoot into the sun, which doesn't work and casts all kinds of bad shadow. I complained (nicely, of course, as I am wont to do) to the groundskeeper guy I'd been chatting with, and he instantly went to his truck and came back with some bread. He baited that crane all the way around the car, and I got this pic.
He's the same guy that fed the alligator apple pie for me. I may take Louis the Groundskeeper with me everywhere I go, just to help me set up pics.
Oh, and this:
Editor: "Lorraine, you have this crane picture tagged as a Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG. Its the Black Series C63, right?"
Lorraine: "But it's red."
