In the shameless-bragging-about-minor-joys department, I had won Andrew Sullivan's "View from Your Window" contest back in May. My prize was a copy of his "View from Your Window" book, published in 2009. The book contains photographs of places all around the world, taken from windows. The photographs are ordered by time, so they start with dawn and end with evening. Amazon now sells this little book, used, for an astonishing $102.98! A better deal is to get it directly from the publisher, Blurb, for $33.95.
All this is a prelude to my finding, when I sampled the book, that the 9:04 a.m. photograph was none other than the picture I'd submitted of the view from office window. So my work's been published, albeit anonymously. Here's the photo:Speaking of Blurb, you can now buy a large-format book with the blog entries from the Dispatch from Metz through this link: http://www.blurb.com/bookstore/detail/2027500. The cost is $112.95.
