Postby NakedLens » Wed Apr 09, 2014 8:30 pm

Yesterday it was announced that my photo of the Black Rock Bijou at Burning Man 2013, has been selected as a finalist in this year’s Smithsonian Photography Contest (http://www.smithsonianmag.com/photocontest/photo-contest-finalists-11th-annual-180950372/); I’m honored to have my work alongside such amazing and beautiful images.

Open voting is now underway, and you can vote once every 24 hours.

If you haven't informed the BR Bijou people, do so.

(Yeah, yeah, eplaya, you post something quasi-informational, and you get the third degree on some odd variant of the 10 principles.)

It is a lovely shot.

First thing I did when the Smithsonian notified me, was contact the BM press team and the Bijou team, both gave the okay. :)

And thanks for the compliment!

Thank you for doing the right thing, and I like to give artists their due, because this world likes to fuck with artists.

There's another Burning man photo in the contest. Mobile category #6.

It is a photogenic place. Wish my aunt, who is really a gifted photographer, could see it.
I should change my sig line.

Congrats! I just saw that in a gallery on the Atlantic and knew it had to be from the event.
