If we’re friends on facebook and/or twitter you’ve already seen this but one of my photos has been published in a magazine! Over spring break while I was visiting Andy in NJ, I received a message on flickr from someone at Food Network. They were wanting to use my photo Casino Pier in a special feature they were doing but needed a larger photo. Since I was out of town, I didn’t have my external hard drive with me, and I wouldn’t be able to get back to them before their deadline. I ignored the message and the several messages that followed up until the deadline.
Until this morning I had forgotten all about that. I bought the June ’11 issue of Food Network’s magazine a couple weeks ago because I was attracted to the cover. I had already flipped through the magazine but this morning a photo from Seaside Heights caught my attention. “Hey, that looks like my photo!” then I noticed over in the right margin my name was credited for the photo. How exciting!
I’ve had other photos show up on other websites but I’ve never seen my photo in print before. What a nice way to start the day!
