Sharing moments in time…

Yikes, I’m Published!


I apologize for the repeat on this photo but it was just published on the editorial page (page 8) of the Pacific San Diego Magazine (!  They also ran another of my photos in an article on wildlife in San Diego (page 53).  These are the first photos that I have had published anywhere other than right here.  A little over a year ago, when I got my first decent camera, this wasn’t even on my radar screen – and it is directly attributable to this blog.  The editor and creative director of the magazine somehow saw some of my photos on this blog and contacted me about using them.  I want to thank all the followers of this blog for the continuing motivation and encouragement that your comments have provided!  I would share my new found photography wealth with all of you but that would come out to less than a dollar per follower…..but hey, its a start!  As a totally unexpected thing, I was thrilled that someone was interested in enough in my photos to want to run them in a publication.    Thanks again to Pacific San Diego Magazine and to all of you!

    • thanks Joanna – who knew that squirrels would be the “subject of choice” for publications rather than things like Brown Bears, Lions, Leopards, etc…!!
