I'm Published in GQ... Sort Of.
Got an email from an Airman I was stationed with in Kirkuk, Iraq this fall. She wrote that a picture I had taken of her and another friend sitting in the cockpit of an old, 1950’s era Soviet Mig, was published in GQ Magazine. These two ladies were by far the craziest and most fun to hang out with, so you never knew when they were pulling a fast one on you.
I didn’t believe her until I ran to the bookstore and checked. She wasn't kidding… page 215 in April’s GQ. (It has the awe-inspiring Jessica Alba on the cover). If you look at the bottom of the page, center, you’ll see a picture of two women sitting in a cockpit. Of course, the photo is credited to an ‘Unknown Photographer’, taken on an ‘Unknown Date’, and ‘Unknown Location’. (Sigh…. C’est La Vi)
Oh well, at least I know who took it. It should read Taken by Captain ‘El Capitan’, Kirkuk Iraq, September 2004.
It’s okay… I hear that fame and fortune aren’t all they’re cracked up to be.
If you want to know more about the two in the picture, send $19.95 cash to.... kidding.
Now on to more important things…. the magazine cover!
