A couple of weeks ago I got an email from High Country News, asking my permission to use a photo from my blog in an upcoming article about Mud Season. Of course I said yes. Not sure if I got photo credit in the magazine, but by my rules, this makes me a published photographer. I haven't actually seen it in print yet, but I found it online here. (It's in the May 12, 2008 issue.) They didn't include my picture in the web version, but I just happen to have it here, from a post a while back, called "walking the plank".
Also notably in print is my friend's beautiful earthship, in an article on Mike Reynolds in the gorgeous magazine, Culture + Travel. I might need to subscribe. It just takes me away... And what the heck is an earthship, you ask? It's a totally off-the-grid, self-sustaining house, built of tires and cans and bottles and mud, into the side of a hill. Google them. Read up on Mike Reynolds, the pioneer of earthshipism. And when you visit Taos, drive out there across the Gorge Bridge to the wide open mesa and visit the one that's open to the public, or even rent one to stay in for a few nights. Lucky me - I get to visit my friend's ship (friendship!) any time I want. It's just at the other end of town from where we live, but it's really like going to a whole other world... or planet.
