this is a shot i took with my 30D at a local park about a week ago. a girl in front of me was blowing bubbles as she walked with her boyfriend. most drifted off or burst, butone of them drifted and landed on the head of a stalk oftall grass... i just had to take the shot. :? got off 3 or 4 frames before it popped, and really liked the way this one came out. taken with my Sigma [email protected] 400mm, 1/250 @ f5.6 handheld...

i sentit in to my local newspaper last Saturday for a "reader photos" feature they started this past Wednesday. the photo editor was impressed, and told me they'd use it, but i was expecting a small print, 2x3" or so like the sample photo they'd been running for the previous week to get readers to submit pics. turns out the feature photos will be larger, on the second page, but because Wednesday was the first day of the feature, they ranmy picat about 5x7"... and right in the middle of the front page!!! :O there was a little paragraph about the new reader photos feature, along with a few lines of about the pic, where i took it, etc.it's not a huge paper, but with 47,000 readers, that's stillsome prettygood "exposure"!
