Coming soon to a coffee table near you?
Every little bit of good news helps. Three of my images have been chosen from my Flickr.com gallery in the "first round" of selection for a coffee-table book called Treasures of the Dragon. It's the third in a series of successful books, published by China Stylus. The first two were called Legends of the Dragon and The Dragon's Playground.
Probably, this means that if I am lucky, only one of the images will make it to the actual book. I am up against pros with real cameras, DSLRs and so forth. When people compliment my photos (which I appreciate greatly), I feel like adding, "Yes, and just remember, it was all done with a $300 point and shoot ultra-compact with a lens the size of your pinky fingernail." That is, a pinky nail without French tips.
If I can sneak in an upload here in upload-less Ladakh, on this page should be one of the nominated images. This is a masked Tibetan "chaam" dancer or "lama dancer" at Bemchen Monastery in Kathmandu, Nepal.
