I woke up Friday morning to an e-mail that nearly every photographer dreams of. National Geographic had sent an e-mail informing me that my image of a Texas Longhorn entitled, "Quintessential Texas" had been chosen as their "Photo of the Day". Like a scene in a comedy, I laid back down.. closed my eyes and drifted back to sleep. About 5 minutes later, the gravity of what I had read sunk in. I flung the covers off, ran to my computer and waited very impatiently as it hummed along.. booting up. Right there on the home page of NatGeo.. there he was! All I could think was, "Holy Cow" (seriously.. I can't make this stuff up!) And to make things even cooler, this all happened on "National Women's Day". As I looked at him on my screen.. him looking back at me.. I can almost hear him say to me, "you go girl".
