May I correct myself:
Mark's photo has not been chosen as the photo of the year yet, but is ranked 3rd so far out of many great photos. Good luck Mark, but looks like that WTC ground zero photo has quite a lead...
One year ago today at 3:40pm I took this photo. January 2nd 2001 even though it has a different date on a.net (I am not sure how that happened, but will put in a correction request) Anyway, I wanted to thank all the nice a.net people that I have met (thru e-mail) from all over the world due to this photo. The experience of getting world e-mails telling me about the photo going into newspapers from around the world has been one of the nicest experiences of my life. Even the beginning of this thread taught me that it was one of the msnbc.com pictures of the year.
Humbled and Grateful
Haven't logged on for a while, been a tad busy....and have therefore just found out about the recognition Marks photo has been getting from MSNBC, and of course wanted to add my sincere congratulations.
