I got a call from the Motor City Mechanics (United Hockey League, Minor Pro Hockey) today asking me to pick out 1 picture of 3 different players and print 8x10 prints of each of the 3 guys and drop them off them asap so they can be FedEx'ed to the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto.
How cool is that, I am going to have 3 photos hanging in the Hockey Hall of Fame!!
So a road trip to Toronto is on the list of things to do this summer.
This on top of 2 pictures being published this month in Inspire your World Magazine too.
I am geeked!

Holy Cow!!! Dave, talk about freeky, I just got an e-mail from Nikon telling me that I won their Grand Prize for Editor's Choice for the Month of June. The winning images are on the www.nikonnet.com site. I have won so very few things in my life and I entered this contest thinking that there is "no way" I'm going to win amongst a world of shooters...I am thrilled and truly humbled.

Congrats Frank,

Its an excellent shot. Whats the context on the picture? Is it a local team that family or friends are on or is it your passion ? I reviewed your PBASE images and you have a lot of good action shots.



thanks

Hi Doug... I began shooting youth sports a couple of years ago when a friend's son was playing baseball in a local tourney. I quickly became addicted and began shooting every friend's kid playing whatever sport they played. Since then, I have switched to digital and purchased some great glass. I hope to shoot full-time when I retire in about 3 1/2 years. I have been involved in various functions in my lifetime but photography has totally consumed me and I am passionate about the fine art that it is. There is something "holistic" in knowing that a youth athlete will have images of himself/herself forever playing the game that they love so much. I envision them showing their children and great-grandchildren the images depicting their childhood days. The ballplayer in the winning image plays for a nearby high school and I caught him sliding back into first base because my friend's son was the first baseman. I don't know is name, but I did bring a print to his coach for him to have.
Thanks again for the kudos and for taking a look at my pbase site. I appreciate it very much.

No worries, you OUGHT to be proud of them :wink: :!:

That is one of the things that just drives me crazy about the web. What I have started doing, in order to combat this, is to do a "select all and copy" of my text when that happens and then open a new browser window to see if my post actually happened. If not, I try again, but most often it just "looked like" it didn't work. I see this on all sorts of web pages, it is certainly not a Cafe issue, but a general 'Net Nit.
