Dear JoelDeluxe Your photos are great. I'm with the ANSWER Coalition. You took some excellent photos of our contingent at Gay Pride 2011 last Saturday. We work with a bi-weekly national newspaper called Liberation which would like to publish at least one of your photos in their next edition which would include a photo credit for you. Please let me know if we can have your permission to do this. My email is or cell is 505 554-8344. Thanks for your great work. Preston
