New York Minute

Photograph By Chris Tedesco

"It isn't every day you get to poach New York City to photograph Rolls-Royce's new Wraith Coupe. To capture this photo, I was hanging unrestrained out of a BMW 650i convertible on the Brooklyn Queens Expressway. In the background is the new World Trade Center Freedom Tower [now called One World Trade Center] and [the] Brooklyn Bridge. This was the day before the Fourth of July, too, so the roads were packed with people trying to leave the city. They really appreciated us holding up traffic and made sure to let us know we were No. 1 when they got past. Talk about a surreal experience."
