No Big Deal


Remember this photo from Friday’s post?

Guess where it showed up on Saturday?

In our local paper!

Our paper features a daily column entitled “Your Pix”. Readers upload their pictures to a web-site, and each day, the newspaper prints a photo from that site.

I’ve been occasionally submitting photos for a couple of years now, but had never had one selected for publication.

And as I accept this award, I’d like to thank my husband, Motor Man. You see, he allows me to use his camera (that’s a post for another day).  And, seeing the beautiful sunset that evening, he rushed me home to take pictures.”

I guess having a photo published in the paper really isn’t a big deal.

But in my little world, it is.
