I'm a cyclist. I have an avid interest in auto photography. I also immerse my skills in everything else.
I haven't garnered much attention since opening my Flickr account way back in 2008, but I do have a few accolades as of about 2010, as my photos have appeared in:
> Family Circle, August 2012. Volume 125, Number 8 (page 44) Lake Oswego Train Bridge and Willamette River.
> The Portland Outsider, Spring 2015. Volume 3, Number 1 (page 28) Urban Coyote Portland Oregon on SE 57th and Hawthorne.
> A Canadian automotive publication featured a photo I took of the dashboard of a 1955 Ford Thunderbird. I have no proof of this, as I didn't ask for a copy of the publication and now I don't know the name of it, but I still have my mental bragging rights.
Number of views, before the Bad Panda, Flickr changes occurred in late 2012 / early 2013, back when it made sense and was cool.
10/2008 to 10/2009 7000 views [First year with Pro account]
10/2009 to 10/2010 11876 views
10/2010 to 10/2011 18263 views
