Completing a Life Goal

August 18th, 2008

Yesterday, much to my surprise, I won third place in the Washington Post’s Ninth Annual Travel Photo Contest.  Since I was never alerted about my win and I had almost forgotten that I entered nearly 4 months earlier, I was completely unprepared for the discovery of my photo from Paris (the one I used to kick off this blog) printed up on the front of the travel section.  Later in the day I learned that my photo made it to the featured photograph on the homepage of the Washington Post.  Few people in my generation would pick up a copy of the Sunday travel section, but luckily my Mom caught it first thing in the morning.  It’s a dream come true to have a picture of mine in such a reputable paper and it was a fantastic birthday gift from the Post.  Next goal: make the top fold of the front page in the print edition.
