            Thank you so much!!! I am flattered by everyone's kind words!

            Thanks to EB for posting this!

            I have a special affinity for the LA Times Travel section. As a kid, I used to look through the Sunday LA Times Travel section every week. I tried hard never to miss an issue. And that was difficult sometimes because my family did not receive the LA Times, so I used to look at my neighbor's copy. I'd look at all the mind-blowing, beautiful, fascinating photos of faraway lands and think, "Some day I am going to go to these places, and I will see these beautiful places with my own eyes."

            I am so lucky to have been to some of these places.

            So you can only imagine my excitement last year when my girlfriend ran in to the house, waving a section of the LA Times Travel section with my photo on the cover! I had won the LA Times Travel Editor's Choice for Summer Photos in 2013! Although I had won accolades from Smithsonian and National Geographic's and won a contest from Lonely Planet Guidebook, this LA Times appearance was extra special because of how how many years as a kid I dreamed of going to those places. And now, I had not only gone to those places and had a photo appear on the cover!!!

            So this latest appearance, like winning the Editor's Choice above, is truly beyond my wildest dreams.

            And yes...as an adult, I have had a subscription to the LA Times for years. I no longer have to borrow my neighbor's copy.

                            My point exactly! It's not like Ken woke up yesterday, went to Best Buy, and picked up a camera. Now, if there were a lot of photographers at his level floating around, okay...then I can see where one could get lost in the signal-to-noise ratio. But he's been doing consistently high-quality work for a long time, so it's good to see he's getting some recognition.

                            BUT...
                            .
                            I have a feeling Ken has one or two more quantum levels to go as he gets further into this...techniques that haven't been done before. I don't feel he's hit his personal peak yet by any means. Just wait - in 20 years I will be proven right, even if I'm not around to be annoying and say "I told you so"
