    It's a small victory but hey! I'll take what I can get.

    A while ago a bunch of us motorbike hooligans went on a ride around New South Wales and a neighboring state Victoria. We took a bunch of photos and I'd posted them on here at the time. As it turns out one of my mates submitted the photos to one of the local motorcycle magasines (TwoWheels, august 2011, around page 126). The funny thing is he didn't tell me till after, he handed me a copy of the magasine and said "hey check out page 126". I was looking at the photos and said "hey we went there!" then after another a few more seconds I was like "hey that's our bikes in the photo!", then after another few seconds I was "hey I took those photos!" :rofl:

    It was the pictures of the Ettamogah Pub and the Giant Ned Kelly. (a couple of iconic Australian things)



    This means I'm officially a published photographer! :dance3: :dance4: :yahoo:

    It also means I'm allowed to buy another lens now... thus far I've still only been running on the 17mm. :biggrin:

    And, I get to rub it in to all my other photographer friends :whoo:

    Good stuff. I guess its not all about the lens but the photographer since many don't give 17mm too much credit.

    Excellent, I bet it was a nice surprise when you were shown! The perfect incentive for you to go out, take some more photos, and send some more in.
