but something kinda exciting happened today....and i'm not making any money on it and i don't really care about that because i think it's an honor. but....ok..here goes - i have to just share it with you. five of my photographs were selected to be used in the new hampton inn in leeds, alabama.
and okay before someone tells me that i'm an idiot and all...i don't care. i can't tell you how many times i've stayed at a hampton and have been enchanted by the local photography they use and how inspired i've been by that photography. now... maybe i can inspire someone else.

i just had to share. these are the ones they asked about:
