I was a bit annoyed tonight when I saw my door mat pushed up against my door as I neared my apartment. Usually this means some prankster has had a laugh at my expense messing it up for me to fix, but today that wasn’t the case. Underneath the mat was delivery from Sterling Publishing/Lark Books. I questioned why for a moment and then realized that maybe it was a book I was asked to submit a photo to via Flickr. Indeed, it was that book.
And I’m super excited about it! It’s a cute little coffee table book all about heart imagery. It’s filled with photos of hearts in nature, painted heart, heart balloons, and random occurrences of hearts in daily life (architecture, shadows, stuff positioned to make hearts). Anyway, I flipped through the book and as I neared the end, I thought that maybe my image wasn’t included after all…but there on the last page was my image called “Heart Attack”. I am honored to have been chosen to close out the book!
Here it is straight from my Flickr page! I took this while I was still in Lexington. I blogged that night about my photo outing in one of my Wednesday is Lensday post.
If you are interested in buying this (now as a belated holiday gift), you can purchase it via Amazon. Click here to order or learn more.
oh wow…I love this image…it hit me of memories when my hubby had a heart attack as he was wheeled down the hallway and my heart was pumping like crazy praying that he was ok…Thank God he was..and congrats on the placement of closing the book out…that would be an honor!

Thank you so much. Yeah, that sounds scary. Glad to here he is ok.
That’s really neat that your picture is included in a book. And I see why it was chosen! Nice work.
Aw, thanks Kristin! It’s funny, a couple of my pics have been asked to use on Flickr. I never know why. It’s always just kinda random, but I’m always excited and honored when they ask me 🙂
