    It seems I've stumbled into a very small slice of internet recognition that's likely to last a minute or maybe two. A couple of guys with a photo-blog saw and liked some of my photos enough to ask do do a brief interview and profile. The results are in the link. If interested, get 'em before they slip permanently into the ether - I don't think it will take long....

    Wow, what a great interview! Congratulations on getting some well deserved recognition. Don't worry about self promotion --- I'm sure everyone would have been ticked if you didn't mention this here :biggrin:

    That was awesome Ray!

    I left a nice comment for You, but it doesn't seem to stick there.

    Congrats! Alan

    I don't think there was much to grab - it was nice that the guy liked my stuff enough to ask me, but I think the people who will see it are the exact same people who see my comments and photographs already, just in a slightly different context/format! But it was sort of fun thinking about stuff enough to answer his questions.

    Congrats, Ray, nice interview. Funny, as I read it I see we have a bit more in common that I was aware of. Good to see you being recognized.

    Ray, I finally got to read this just now and am very glad I did. You were your normal self - modest, enthusiastic, interesting and witty. Your photographs looked great in there, too!:bravo-009:

    At first I wondered why you'd posted this in here but I think it's the perfect place, really as it is a great introduction.:thumbup:

    I looked for a category along the lines of "shameless self-promotion" but found nothing applicable. So I figured a re-introduction (you know now that I'm famous and all) would be the best bet. From what I can tell, I was a worldwide phenomenon for a chunk of Sunday (they loved me in France and liked me in Italy - my wife about had the bags packed) but now I've flamed out and gone back to being whatever I was before (I can hardly remember what that was). Unfortunately, I was out of the house (shooting photos, oh the irony) most of Sunday so I durn near missed my day in the sun.

    Oh well, they tell me it was grand.

    Maybe we need a department of shameless self-promotion in case this happens again (to other forum-dwellers).
