Life has its ups and downs, its ebb and flow you might say, and right now, I'm riding an up: That photo above was featured in a gorgeous two-page spread in Rowing Magazine's recent photo annual.
Now here's the down: It was incorrectly attributed to one Linda Hannum.
Isn't life ironic? (Key up Alanis Morissette here.)
I had to laugh really. I was thrilled three of my photos made it into the magazine's annual and even happier that one got marquee placement. The fact that the editors made a boo-boo about who took it didn't discourage the goose bumps or dim my smile. That's life.
And anyway, another "up" came my way: The gallery director at the Cavallo Point lodge got a look at my blog and chose two images that are now framed and for sale in the reception area. Big goose bumps. Really big smile.
If you get a chance, go check them out and then go to the Farley Bar next door and enjoy some of the best cocktails this side of the Golden Gate (I'm partial to the Bourbon Maple).
And Linda H., if you make it to the Bay Area, get in touch and we'll get out on the water. I'd love to show you my home pond.
