After procrastinating for a few days I finally did it. Walked my butt up to the post office with a big yellow envelope addressed to AZ Highways Magazine and paid the lady behind the counter.
I have now passed the threshold where there’s no turning back. You can’t “un-mail” something. Maybe I’ll just never hear from them. Who knows……Maybe they’ll write a scathing letter back telling me to find something else to do. Maybe they’ll like the photos. Guess I’ll have to wait and see.
So, what did I send? A DVD with several favorites from my Ghost Town series. Images from Bisbee, Pearce, Gleeson, Vulture, and Yarnell. It’s the first round of trying, and we’ll see if anything sticks!
Want to see what got sent?
Ok, before you start asking questions like, “Why’s the diner in there? What’s the deal with the taxi?” I’ll say this. The Arizona Highways Ghost Towns and Mining Camps book lists places like Lowell, Bisbee, & Jerome. They’re still active spots and the sidewalks haven’t rolled up forever. The diner and the other similar photos are part of what the towns are now.
There’s my explanation and I’m sticking to it.
Here’s hoping they find an image or two worthy of AZ Highways. It would be really cool to get some of my images in with them and share my view of the new home I found two years ago!
I’ll just keep reminding myself that AAA’s magazine will be running something from my Bisbee trip soon…… That makes me smile! Pushes that old self doubt a little ways away!
