Congrats!

May I ask, what is the amount on the check? I presume pretty modest. Two digits?

For all we complain about UP, they do seem to pay up pretty well for good photos. Congrats!

Default Congrats!!

I'm glad that you made it!!! You will enjoy seeing your photo in print.
I made it in 2 Calendars this year myself! I got November in the 2008 Norfolk Southern Calendar. I also got the Cover & February of The BRC&F (Brotherhood's Relief & Compensation Fund) calendar.

Congrats Again!

Willie
