I'm Big in New Zealand!

I got an odd email the other day.

This guy from the "regional council for the Waikato region in the North Island of New Zealand" wrote to me. He is a graphic designer for Environment Waikato, which is a "regional council that manages land, water, soil, air, coastal and geothermal resources in the central North Island of New Zealand."

Apparently, they like to change their banner header every three months and have it represent each season. And this season, being down under and all, is Summer!!

So, this guy asks if I would mind if he used part of one of my photos of Ethan that we took on the beach this summer (our summer, 6 months ago!). I thought, "why not?". They also put a graphic representation of a river through every picture they use. You will see that if you check it out. It should be their page header for three months or so!

So, I'm published! Sort of...

Check it out, here.

Great photo. Too bad they lopped off the little guy's head. He is a cutey.

Wow,my grandson is famous--kinda:-) (Well, so is my daughter, too, I guess). Congratulations. I love the original picture. Love those curls!!! Your brother figured out that they were looking for the texture of the sand not so much the beautiful little face sitting in said sand.

Cool!

I like the cropping. It really emphasizes the texture of the sand and those adorable pudgy fingers. Not to mention the color. It changes it from a portrait into a graphic.

I found their wave thingy a little odd though.
