Robert C. Garrigus April 22, 2008

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.

Patrick Campbell April 22, 2008

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...
