Sometimes you have to laugh at how random things are. I was sitting at home on November 8th when my wife got a text from her parents saying they were watching Jeopardy that afternoon and they had mentioned my stamp. I was pretty doubtful that this really occurred so I went on with my business and told them we'd look it up later when it was posted online.
The next day, I was able to pull up November 8th's episode and sure enough there was Alex Trebek reading a question under the subject of stamps that mentioned "O Beautiful", the collection of stamps that my photo "Daydream" was included in. When he read the question it specifically mentioned my photo about the "Double Rainbow Over Kansas", so you can imagine when I saw this I was taken aback. Never in my wildest dreams did I think a photo of mine would be mentioned in the course of a game of Jeopardy. FYI, the contestant gave the correct answer.
They have made the episode on YouTube private or I would post it here. Anyways, I was able to get a screen grab and save it, which I've posted above.
Can you give the correct answer?
Every once in a while a special project comes along that I get the pleasure to take part in, and recently I got the opportunity to capture some photos for the Garth Brooks documentary titled "The Road I'm On" which premiers on A&E on Monday, December 2nd at 9:00 p.m est.
I traveled to his Oklahoma residence to capture some photographs of a bridge that he and his daughters built by themselves over the summer of 2011. I have to say it was one heavy duty built bridge, quite possibly the sturdiest bridge ever built by hand (seriously!). Anyways, it was quite the experience and it never ceases to amaze me how my photography has found its way throughout the world. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing this documentary when it comes out next month.
