SF: Golden Gate Bridge. Stood in the rain for 2 hours. Totally worth it.

    I was listening to an interview with the race director the other day. He said his only regret was that the bad weather spoiled the shot of the riders crossing the bridge.

    That may be true with one exception.

    I think the fact that it was featured on the flickr blog and tagged with cycle gods' names helped get the well deserved 17K hits. And yes, I think we have a future famous photographer here.

    Hi all! Just wanted to let everyone know that you should head to your local newsstand or bike shop in April! This photo is being published in two magazines! Yippy!

    San Francisco Magazine - April Issue www.sanfranciscomag.com
    Road Magazine - May Issue www.roadmagazine.net

    Both are big fancy tabloid magazines, so get 'em while they're hot!

    Also, for those who asked for prints and downloads... I haven't forgotten! I had to wait until the piece was published before I could move on anything. Gimme a week.

    Thanks again to all for your support! It has meant the world to me.
