I got an email today and a request to use this photo in a textbook on geology. No payment, just a credit. Neat, though.

Today i saw the Queen. Queen Elizabeth II, that is. I waited after work for about an hour, hoping she would do a walkabout where we were all standing. Turned out she did one but it was down by the waterfront. She'd been on a ship reviewing the international fleet and came ashore by the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic to unveil a plaque. She did a bit of a walkabout there but where i was, outside that area, she drove through when she was done. I had a good spot to wait if she'd been on foot, too. But alas, i only got a brief glimpse of her in her car as she passed. At least i was standing on the right side of the car to see her and she looked right at the direction i was standing. I know it's not much, but it's all i got :) I'm unapologetically a monarchist though i know many are not. No photos as she went by too quickly. I should have taken video footage instead. I was pleased enough that i did see her.

Got home and there's a copy of Heritage Magazine. One of my photos is in it! Yay! It's this photo below of the Little Dutch Church in Halifax. The magazine article is about a program to help some National Historic sites in Canada. The article is in English and in French and my photo is with the French one. The churchis one of the oldest churches in Canada outside of Quebec and still has a cemetery from back then. It was founded just after Halifax was, in the early 1750s. The article is here, under the link that starts "Un effet tangible..." on the right. That's a pdf file and it's on page 4 of the file. I didn't get paid for it but i do have a photo credit :))) My first published photo (that i know of!) I also had one that was published on a tourist website for the Peak District in the UK. But this is a real magazine :))) Much cooler!
