A few months ago i got approached by a US magazine called Popular photography about using one of my pictures for there November Issue.

I was well excited and at first thought it was a joke but i kindly agreed for them to use my image to see what happens. Fast forward to today and they kindly sent me a copy of the magazine with my first ever print i have sold!!!

Well excited. Never imagined any of my pictures could be bought by anyone let alone a magazine.

It is the picture i took above the title "Wet Down" where i was on my way home from a social photo meet up in shoreditch. It was a raining at the time but still took out my camera to take pictures as there was some interesting light and reflections to capture

Congratulations on your sale! In your post, flickr says the second photo is unavailable, but clicking on the announcement goes to the photo.

I've been a subscriber for many, many years...so yes I had to grab my copy and look up your photo. Congratulations! I'm not sure why they always put a different cover on their newstand edition.
