A few months ago, a friend of mine from church undertook a real labor of love. A professional photographer by trade, he took a shot he called “Smokin’ Ace,” had it mounted, and gave it to me as a gift.
It’s pretty spectacular.
So now it’s on the wall in my office, of course.
Here’s what the studio set up for the photo looked like:
But now it gets interesting.
He posted the photo on his Flickr account.
The tournament directors from a professional (ATP) tournament in Kuala Lampur Malaysia saw it, loved it, and want to use it as the logo for their event in 2011.
Agreement reached, fee paid, and now what’s on my wall in Charlotte, North Carolina will be in markets throughout southeast Asia.
Small world, huh?
