Robert C. Garrigus 4/22/2008 2:26:52 AM

Hi Patrick,

I saw one of your recent contest submissions and got to wondering if you were the same Patrick Campbell who placed in the DCMag photo contest in 2007 - and here is the shot! Brilliant work Patrick. The rest of your gallery is great as well.


Bob Garrigus #5822503

Patrick Campbell 4/22/2008 9:16:38 AM

Hi Bob,

That would be the same Patrick Campbell :-). I loved your first place winner in the same contest! I have a book by Art Wolfe with a similar photo in it--but I like yours better! Hope I can visit that location someday...
