After taking this picture I asked a friend of mine who is a wedding photographer if he would print it on metallic paper. After a week or so he said the photo lab would like to use it for their advertising the metal paper and asked if I would sell them the rights and sign a release, so I did for a dollar and the 20 x 30 print they gave me for free. I will keep my day job though I do love to take pictures every free moment!
