Dear Melany:
Congratulations! Your photograph, "Way Out West" has received an Honorable Mention in the Animals category in teh 11th Annual New Mexico Magazine Photo Contest. Your photograph will be published in our February 2012 issue.

We received approximately 1,064 images from 221 photographers. Judging so many beautiful images was a huge challenge, but yours was outstanding.

... Signed,

I'M SO FREAKIN' EXCITED RIGHT NOW, I CAN'T STAND IT!
This is one of MY favorite photos and I can't believe it's published* (Page 37 of the Feb 2012 issue of New Mexico Magazine)

Hey! All the cool kids are doing it, so I made a Google+ business page. Besides, you never know if Facebook will survive or not. I'm covering all my basis :-)
I promise to not put up a million crap posts a day if you'll circle my business page :-)

This photo (taken last year) is getting a lot of hits on Flickr. Most are coming from Google searches.

"For those of you that think they died for nothing, you're ignorance is overwhelmingly obvious in every word that you post. As long as you are comfortable with that, ramble on. Otherwise shut the fuck up. Those men will be honored by others cut from the same cloth who will keep taking the fight to the enemy, hunting them relentlessly, and destroying them wherever they are found. "

I would like to thank the President and members of Congress personally for having the inability to basically balance a checkbook and getting downgraded on our debt rating. I really appreciate the higher intreat rates, further slowing of economic growth and the wonderful returns on my 401

I hope I can return the favor next November.

Again I say, Remove the tags by their names, and let them run on their individual merit, not what the party says.

Do any of you use Fine Art America to sell prints?
I recently opened an account and loaded a few images. Let's see what happens.

"The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance."

Please stop and say a prayer for our troops and their families today. I have friends here, and I'm worried about them.

I read a report that said many of the dead are from the Navy SEAL 6 team that killed Ben Laden. Sucks!
If true, this could give the taliban and al queda hope and something to celebrate. Of course, it'll only PISS OFF the rest of us, and that's not good news for those ass wipes.Edit

Story
Introduction
Recently retired after 24 years in the USAF where I served as a First Sergeant for over 7 years.  My life is my own now!  For the last few months, I've traveled and shot photos.  I moved, I'm getting settled in.   I lived in "limbo land" for almost a year after retirement.  It was fun, but it got old not having a focus each day, and the days started blending together.
 
I am now a full-time student Texas Tech University, my major is Studio Arts, with an emphasis in Photography.  I love being an Art Student!
