Employees at the Wal-Mart distribution center in Temple, TX, gather for a morning meeting.
This was the first photo I ever sold to a major publication. The Boston Globe bought it back in 2005 after coming across this page via Google. Photos of distribution centers are apparently so rare that it drove the photo editor to the internet, back before the practice was commonplace. It ran in the business section that December.
The editor's encouragement eventually led me to take up photography semi-professionally.
