Mmmm… doughnut

Captain Crunch covered doughnut made by Portland's very own, Voodoo Doughnuts (Lincoln Barbour)

Funny story about this doughnut: I was on assignment for American Airlines in flight magazine, American Way, and part of the assignment was to shoot Voodoo Doughnuts. I was trying to shoot an interior of the downtown location, but it happened to be during Spring Break. The place was totally mobbed and had to wait in line for 30 minutes just to get inside. If you’ve never been to the downtown Voodoo Doughnuts, it’s about the size of dorm room. Getting a clean, travel-esque, interior photo is nearly impossible when the place is empty. It was just ludicrous to even try with the place packed shoulder to shoulder with high school kids.

I did what I could and then asked for a couple doughnuts to shoot as backup.This shot is the one they picked to run and I’m really happy they did. I mean, look at this thing! This shot makes me want to go to Voodoo Doughnuts every time I look at it.

And yes, I did eat it after I shot it. It was sooooo worth it.

p.s.: Props to PhotoShelter for creating their rad WordPress plugin. So if you like this shot, you can buy a copy of it by clicking on the photo. Word.
