As an American living in Canada, I can certainly relate to this article, although reading it was a definite palm-to-forehead moment for me. D’oh!

Fast forward 25 years to December 2K8. I was in Houston for the holidays and went to a TV commercial shoot my company was doing with the Houston Rockets, specifically with Shane Battier and Carl Landry. Of course, I brought along my camera and as it turns out, was the only person there to think of doing so. I know – don’t ask me. I usually don’t put my photos “out there”, mostly for fear of being judged. I just choose not to look like a complete ass in front of everyone on earth (just a select few). Post holidays, though, I was asked to provide some of my snaps to our PR department to accompany the contest press release. So I did.

Shane Battier and me
It’s not really that great of a photo, imo. Still, it had eyeballs gawking at it in two of the hippest cities on the planet. I expect to get a call from National Geographic any day now because, clearly, my time has come. Don’t worry — I promise not to forget the little people (grin). And just think…it all started with a pink Le Clic.
