I’ll be the first one to say it: Our Halloween photo shoot got completely out of control this year. What started two years ago as an hour-long black and white photo shoot in my living room (German was gangster, I was a flapper) has now reached a new level of insanity with multiple locations, not to mention historical costumes and some Photoshop magic. This new level of craziness is a combo of two major factors: 1) How do you top “I Love Lucy”?! and 2) German is a huge Back to the Future fan.
How far were we willing to go to fulfill our artistic vision? Barstow, CA, my friends. This is the sort of place where people ask if you are on your way to Las Vegas or Los Angeles because Barstow is NO ONE’S terminal destination. Besides “patch of desert outside Barstow,” our locations also include: “Calico ghost town,” “railroad track near Norwalk,” and “Heritage Park,” which is nestled in an industrial park in Santa Fe Springs.
Was it worth it? You be the judge – we hope you have as much fun looking at our photos as we had taking them! Now taking suggestions for Halloween 2012!
If you missed last year’s shoot, here’s I Love Lucy – 2010.
