Jock, good for you! Show's you how much I know...I'd assumed one had to have taken the photos with a Leica to enter the competition. I am particularly taken with your fall scene...with the lake - simply glorious colors and what a view. Please keep us posted on the competition's outcome and good for you for entering!

BB,

Thanks for the kind words. It was clear once you got into the application process that you didn't have to use a Leica to take the pix. I had to ask if I qualified to enter because I am a fulltime writer who takes photos sometimes to illustrate my stories. Leica's communications department said it would be OK if I enter.

Jock, I'm sure I'm not alone in being interested in your writing. If you ever feel like sharing any of your publications, that would be great.

BB,

Well, since you asked . . .

here's a link to the blog I write every week for Airguns of Arizona Airguns of Arizona Blog

scroll down a bit, and you'll see some of what I usually do with cameras.

Here's an article I ghost wrote for a client: "A Shift for the Better," Feature Article, April 2008
