"The Cover of 'Rolling Stone'"

Doctor Hook and the Medicine Show sang:

“But the thrill we've never known
Is the thrill that'll getcha
When you get your picture
On the cover of the Rolling Stone.”

That is a thrill that will not likely ever be mine as well. But, a photograph I shot has made the cover of a magazine.

The Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden chose my Tidy Tips photo for the cover of their magazine, 'Exploring the Arboretum'.

Exploring the Arborretum
Wildflowering LA

It illustrates the article "Wildflowering LA". I have to say I think that is pretty cool. 

The kicker is that there is also an article on Julius Shulman. This is an added plus for me. He was a photographer whose work I have admired for decades. Little could I have dreamed when I was in my teens that something I shot would ever appear in such close proximity to his photographs.

I am not in his league, but, I too, have made forays into architectural photography. This is my latest attempt:

A back room at Walter's Restaurant in Claremont.
A Bar at Walter's

Earlier work about the Schindler House can be found on PBase.
