Sometimes.. plan B is the best plan!

OK, so there was no official plan B, but here's the story.  We had planned to shoot at UN-NAMED historic location in OKC.  We thought they closed at 1 time, when indeed, they actually closed at the time we showed up for our session, and the oh so NOT helpful and unpleasant woman that was working in the UN-NAMED historic location (who had the office doors locked 10 minutes before close and does not return phone calls - ahem), was not about to leave the gate open for 10 minutes... but I understand, when its time to go, its time to go.  I digress.
We were close to bricktown/midtown area, and racing the sun set.  We jumped in our cars, and they agreed (unbeknownst to them at this point what a horrible driver I am) to follow me.  So in my head I am driving to a specific location and my eye catches a building a NEED to shoot at, so with my blinker on right turn, I go straight through the light and park in a private parking lot (which I have never been in before), jump out and swear to the Dad that I am not crazy... we shoot for 10 minutes, hop back in our cars, I run over a cement curb (do not tell my husband), drive down alleys the wrong way... end up having at least 5 different AMAZING backgrounds, and have what I will call, 1 of my favorite sessions EVER!
