Cover Photo

The other day I received an email that was very unexpected.  The subject line read "Photo Chosen for Directory Cover".  I wasn't sure what in the world it was referring to and when I opened it I was pleasantly surprised.  

It turns out that one of the photos I took last fall was chosen to be on the phone book cover for Northern Vermont and New Hampshire!  What's even cooler was that they were offering to pay me a good price to utilize the photo.  Neither of which had I sought or solicited for.  Turns out that the woman stumbled across my photo, selected it (along with others since the image example I received was labeled choice #3), and then chose my photo as the best fit.  

How cool is that?

What's even cooler is that I get two phone books for free with my photo on it even though I actually don't live in the phone book area anymore.  
 

Hey, it may not be a coffee table book of photographs, but its at least my photo printed on somthing!  That counts, in my book.

Hey! Don't cut yourself down. Someone (not related to you) found your photo midst Lord knows how many she really saw and selected it to cover a phone book. That's stick-your-chest-out-with-pride time! And, they're gonna pay. Hurray! Congratulations. And, may you have many more of the same experiences.
