I can’t believe it!

I opened my email this morning and found this message via Flickr:

Wow. I first heard from her a few weeks ago when she sent me a Flickr message informing me that my photo was shortlisted for inclusion. I filled out a form giving them permission to include it, but I never thought that it would actually be included! Wow. I mean, the photo that they selected is not the one I would have picked (since I took several better ones while I was at the gardens), but it’s still an honor! I’ve never had a photo of mine be used in anything (except for when I had to take some sports shots for the yearbook back in high school, but that’s not an accurate comparisonĀ  I was already on the staff).
