    The Phoenix, Arizona, newspaper periodically publishes photos of scenic places in the state, and they invite reader submissions. I took one two weekends ago that I liked and decided to submit it. Today I got an email back from them with very complimentary remarks, saying that they'll publish it on September 5th.

    The pay is zero but it will be gratifying to have a photograph I took seen by a lot of people, so I'm pleased. The photograph was posted here about a week ago:

    The Arizonans here may see the humor in the fact that I took this in Paradise Valley, a block from Lincoln Drive, in pretty much the center of the metropolitan area.

    That's great! Especially pulling it out of the hat like that.

    Congratulations. I'm happy for you! It feels funny in a good way to see your own photo being published! So look forward to Sept 5! And scan in the article for us, will you? So we can see?

    Thanks to all of you. LaFoto, there won't be a related article--just the photo, in low fidelity, on newsprint. :) But I'll enjoy thinking that others are enjoying it.

    Congrats. I hope that the paper will at least give you credit for the image.
