    So back in October, I entered three of my photos for a chance to be featured as part of the Veteran Artist Program exhibit inside the Pentagon. Yesterday I received and email saying that one of my photos had been selected out of over 400 entries. Kinda stoked about it since nothing of mine has ever been exhibited. Below is the picture that got selected. It was Taken Inside a gas chamber while the NBC guy prepped it.

    Awesome pic. I love the feel of it.

    You are going to make some mediocre fashion models look pretty damn hot one day!
