Macro Monday: I'm Published!

I took this macro this past spring and today I'm reposting it. I'm excited because this photo was published in a small church magazine in Calgary, Alberta. I was contacted by their graphics designer and asked if they could use my photo. I was overwhelmed to say the least that anyone would want to publish one of my photos. An amateur photographer's dream come true for me!
My only request was that I be given a hard copy of the magazine. That's it above all framed and sitting in a chair in my sunroom ready to be hung on the wall to give me inspiration to keep trying to do my best. A big THANK YOU to Judy M. for her kindness and encouragement!
Linking to Macro Monday.

Carletta....I have the same experience. A gentleman emailed me wanting to use one of my spider web pictures in his child's book coming out this Christmas. I cannot wait to receive my copy. I was thrilled just as you were. The photo is a treasure. No wonder they wanted to use it.genie
