Whoa- 100 posts. 
fancy that. 
Glad to see that a few folks are following along & checking stuff out.
Thanks. nice.
All sorts of hi-tech new things happening here these days.

Here's the new Blurb book -it's a rendition of my 13x19 custom printed portfolio. 
I'm super impressed with the quality - lots of possibilities here.

In other fascinating Office news:

Our Studio Manager here @ Embry Rucker Photographs Inc. Scott, has been taking advantage of my "Ride your bike or take the train to work & get a $5 bonus eco friendly eco challenge"

No one has ever really taken me up on it & now Scott, who, mind you, lives like 35 miles away [one way] has been biking in 2-3 days a week - sure he stinks to high heaven & we don't have showers, but he has his own office & we have incense just in case.
so, mother earth thanks you & i thank you. 
Have a good weekend.

Hey StikMan, yeah Scott is getting Gnarly.
i'm not sure my images deserve a hardcover book, but it looks cool, go on, give it a try.... at least your parents & in-laws will want to see it.

Congrats on the one hundie. Nice, but I am having trouble keeping up with all your social networking. Slow down. Oh...and also... Can I borrow $125 ? I have had my eye on a new book.

@ shane:
I really just did the Blurb as a test to see how the whole interface / printing worked. i think it might be better suited to smaller more targeted books that you can send with a general portfolio... it's cool though.

i've been a fan for a long, long time.

Hey tell Scott YO! from Blaine... I was wondering what he was up to these days!
Come to think of it he kinda stunk (stinked?) back in the Calumet days too, without biking to work. Kidding... haha.
