It’s Almost Like I’m Famous

:note: guitar playing

About a week and a half ago, I got a message through Flickr mail from a man who works at New York Magazine, inquiring whether I would give them permission to use one of my photos for a piece they were preparing about Chinatown.

I figured I really didn’t have anything to lose, so I said it was fine as long as they gave me photo credit.

The magazine supposedly came out last Monday, but you can also see the Chinatown article on their website.

My photo is near the bottom of the article and it’s a cropped shot of Bubble Tea. They masked out the background so it looks a bit dorky, but hey! My photo is in New York Magazine!

    You are not allowed to talk about bubble tea unless I am drinking a bubble tea. Otherwise I will just want one.

    Boba Belly Almond … mmm.

    Yay, awesomeness!

    Too bad you didn’t get linked. That would have totally upped your coolness, I’d bet.

    I wonder if you can ask to be linked in a situation like that….

    Meggan says:
    *smacks head* Didn’t even think about being linked, honestly.

    That said, I’m not sure that I’d want to be linked, since I think people would be expecting a less-personal website. I’d probably have it link to my portfolio site if anything. I’m not even sure if it’s common practice to put links in photo credits though.

    Awesome! It’s always nice to see your photo show up somewhere with credit. =)
