They chose some really great images this year. Any of which we would be proud to have on display in the Smithsonian exhibit. With any Luck Nick and I both will be on display this year. I just hope that Nick wins a category this year. Then Nick and I can take a trip to the east coast for the awards and some great photographic stops on the east coast. I hope to see Nick pictured like this or even better to have the two of us pictured together this year at the awards.
