My book, The Blueridge Parkway and Beyond can now be found on Blurb. It is an interesting site and when I get my copy I will let you know of the quality of the printing. Something you may consider doing with your photographs.

In other news, one of my photos has been selected for the National Geographic Daily Dozen. This puts it contention to be printed in an upcoming print issue of the National Geographic. The photo is below:

You can help by going to National Geographic and voting. Click the voting view and go to the third week in September. There is a scale of 1-10 and I would deeply appreciate all the 10's that it could get. But of course that is up to you. The voting ends Oct 8th. Currently, I am the leader in the voting but by the skin of my teeth. So your help would be warmly appreciated.

I want to let you all know that I had a Flickr friend who recently died, it has been a difficult time for me and I have not been as active on the internet for a while because of this, and I have myself been recovering from an extended illness.

Please forgive by my lapse in comments and interaction. I hope to get back in the swing of things soon.

Thanks all for your kind support.
