Got some good news I thought I would share a couple of weeks ago.
First I was asked to write an article and they selected 13 images to be in Viewfinder Magazine. Also they featured a few of the images that are going to be in the magazine and a short piece of my article on their website. Heres a link. You have to be a member to see the entire article with all the images. Spontaneous Relationships & the M Monochrom
Also One of my photographs was excepted in a juried exhibit at the Soho Gallery in New York. The curator and judge was Elisabeth Biondi. She was the Visual Editor of the New Yorker for 15 years. There were over 1500 submissions and only 40 were selected for the exhibit so I feel honored. The opening is Thursday July 7 at the Soho Gallery 15 White Street New York, NY. Unfortunately I can't attend the opening because I have a very early shoot on Friday the 8th for a VERY important client.
Heres the image she selected

The 'Pipes' band played a nice selection of Irish and Scottish music. The lighting seemed to favor a little too much blue, or maybe that impression is driven by the costumes. --- I've tried the photo of the church from the lot 2 blocks away many times, and never kept any, due to the clutter in the parking lot. This time I cropped more of the irrelevant stuff from the bottom, and I think it looks a little weird, but I really wanted to have this view, so I'll see how I like it down the road.
