A Moment of Pride…

My photo is featured in Forbes’ Magazine’s favorite restaurant picks. [Points down]

Forbes' tearsheet FOR REALZ?!

I almost forgotten about this and thought it wouldn’t happen since I’m just a wee food-and-photo obsessed blogger. I mean, I’m sure that there are a lot of professional photographers out there who could easily take an exponentially better photo than I could and somehow I’ve been “discovered.”

How this happened was that the photo editor of Forbes contacted me and requested to use my photo of Cafe Boulud (this one) about a month ago. Since I haven’t heard anything more beyond the first few days, I presumed they’re not using my photo. However, the same person emailed me yesterday and told me that I was featured and gave me the link.

All I could say is, “Wow…I feel humbled.” I just wish they do linkbacks but obviously it’s hard to do for a caption but it’s better than no credit (Duh!).

If you would like to see the actual page, here is the link. Just be warned that their slideshow starts automatically within a few seconds.

Thanks to Forbes for featuring me and to all of you guys for (silently) rooting for me.

    Way to live the dream! How very photogenic of you, too! Although I think my first reaction would have been more along the lines of something that couldn’t be printed in Forbes…than i would have had the whole “feeling humbled” experience. Congrats!!

    Congrats… very well deserved credit. Now you have the street cred to publish an entire book of food porn!!!

    wineguy: Haha… Thanks! I was flabbergasted when the editor contacted me. I was like “WUH? ME?!

    Mitzy: Thank you! :D I’ll see you soon!

    steveTV: Thanks as well! I don’t think the world is ready for a book of food porn…but it doesn’t sound like a bad a thought. Hmmm…
