I need Desert Storm Pics

Post by RichardLowry » Mon Oct 15, 2007 4:20 pm

Hello all,

"The Gulf War Chronicles" has qualified for my publisher's most prestigious level of achievement - the STAR program. In this program, iUniverse is going to professionally edit the book and re-release it in a format that should enable it to be on the bookshelves of your local bookstore.

They have agreed to let me include a photo plate in the center of the book. If you have any photographs that you would like to be considered for inclusion, please let me know.

I can only use good quality photos, at least 200 pixels per inch in digital format or the photo itself. Rest assured, if you send me a photo and a return envelope with postage attached, I will return your original.

I need only 10 pictures, or so. So, only send me your best photos.

I think a photo plate will enhance the quality of "The Gulf War Chronicles."

I look forward to using your contribution.

Best Regards,

Richard S. Lowry


PS please let me know if you have something to send and I will provide you with a mailing address.

Good, sorry about the quality of some of them. It wasn't great film in the first place and the camera was basically a piece of junk after being in the desert. The heat was not nice to the film and from the over 400 pics I took, only a handful came out.

I am actually using some of those in my photoshop class as my project of cleaning up old photos.
