When it Rains it Pours

Good news always comes in clumps...ever notice that? (Unfortunately, bad news comes in clumps too)...today was good news for me though, and that is always worth sharing.

Today I found out that one of my photos was published in very nice book (and I also received a nice little payment for the photo as well). The book is about forestry in Indonesia, and one of my underwater photos was used...

I also found out today that a photo I took up at the Freeport Mine in Papua will be used in a book about mining and the environment...I will let you know more about that one when I hear more news...

Here is the cover of the Forestry book...


There is my photo on the left-hand page...


My other good news today is that my profile was featured in Jason Moore's Photoshop & Photography blogroll...if you are interested in learning more about me go to Jason's site and read my profile, and get a better look at my big bald head...

Also featured on Jason's site is fellow blogger, Troy, from Ramblings Around Texas...and I have seen Stacey's name on Jason's blog as well...Stacey from "A focus in the Wild" fame...

Hi Scotty, congratulations! Just great! I will go to read your interview soon.

But I don't know why, I can't open those photos... I will try later.

Texas Travelers said...

Yeah. What Quint said. Put some beer in the boat and the back of the jeep for a hot day. On ice, of course.

Congrats on the book. Nice job.

They made a good choice, your underwater photos are truly spectacular.

Have a great day,
Troy
