Nashville Amplified

Several weeks back, I was contacted by a publishing company about a book project to promote Nashville that the Chamber or Mayor's Office could use to attract companies to relocate to Nashville. Via Flickr, they found one of my downtown photos. This officially became my first paid, published photo with a second yet to be published by another company. Today, my one of my two favorite visitors (the UPS guy, the other being the FedEx dude) showed up with a beautiful book - Nashville Amplified.



OMG - page 82...


I'm in good company with Blake, Deb and the PhragMunkee.

and more than that, seeing that the author is non other than Fiona Soltes who use to write with The Tennessean newspaper. We went to church together way back and she was gracious to write an article about my involvement with Make A Difference Day when we were doing free oil changes and safety checks for the single moms at Belmont Church. Fiona is a class act and it was great to reconnect via print and seeing her craftsmanship. Go girl!

Thanks everyone for the nice thoughts! It is fun to always carry a camera on person. That morning, I happened to have 45 minutes to kill, so I threw some quarters in the meter and took off on a walking tour of downtown Nashville.
