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.
