Our State newspaper does an annual photo competition called Capture Arkansas. Photographers submit pictures taken in Arkansas, place them in various competitive categories, and then the user community votes for their favorites.
Over 2,000 people submitted/participated. Over 75,000 photos were submitted. And 3.5 million votes were cast. Somewhere near 220 photos were selected for the coffee table book that was recently published. John got one photo chosen to be in the book, and this is it. Pretty amazing, huh? I was very proud of him! John has been doing a daily Photoblog for 2010. Its pretty amazing to see all he has done!
John's Dad also participated in the competition and also got a photograph published. It happens to be a picture of my brother in law fishing. He thinks he's famous now. :)
