I’m proud to announce that the photo above has been “Chosen” to appear online for AP31. It’s definitely better to be chosen than not, even if I won’t be in the book this year. This year’s photo bears a striking resemblance to last years “Selected” (in the book) photo which you can see here. It’s always weird to submit what you think is your best work each year. I think no matter what they choose (or select) it’s both a relief and a let down. I certainly don’t think this was my best photo of the year, I don’t even think it was my best photo of that cat (you can decide for your self here), but I’m happy to be recognized and I’ve been fortunate over the years. You can see the results of my contest efforts over the past few years (since I’ve been blogging) here.
