A nice surprise

Posted on 22 Sep ’12 by Earl Moore

A nice surprised awaited me this morning — an article©Meandering Passage - Earl Moore Photography and the above photo was publish online by an Italian Newspaper referencing “Meandering Passage” and my posts/photos in and around La Spezia and the Cinque Terre coast, Italy.

So a big thank you Nic at Gazzetta del La Spezia — I appreciate it!

    Wow! International acclaim! Congratulations, Earl. I read the Google translated article. :)

      Thanks Paul. That’s the version I read also. :-)

      I was surprised…just a comment on one of my post letting me know they had published it.

      But, no mention of a check for use of my photo (kidding)! ;-)

    I’m curious as to how they even found you! Was it someone that you met/knew in that town that knew about your blog, or perhaps Bonnie knew them? If not, I suppose you were at the top of a Google search for that city/area. Cool, however they found you!

      I don’t know. No one we knew that I’m aware of. I can only think it was a keyword search. La Spezia is not a big tourist destination in itself, which may have made my targeted post fall higher in a search. La Spezia’s claim to fame is it’s a rail gateway to Cinque Terra.

      Yeah, however they found me it was a nice little kudo.

      Hey, thanks, Steve!

  4. Eric Jeschke 22 Sep ’12 at 3:37 pm

    Congratulations, Earl! Would have been nice if they had asked your permission to use the photo, but at least they linked to your series of posts and that is the main consideration.

    When does the travel book come out? :-)

      Eric, thanks. I was a bit surprised they didn’t contact me before hand for permission but there were wonderful credits given so it doesn’t bother me.

      Stay tuned for that book deal and then the made-for-TV movie. LOL :-o

    Nice surprise indeed! Pretty cool Earl, and some well-deserved recognition.

      A star…oh yeah, right. :-) It was nice unexpected recognition. Thanks, Ken.

  7. Monte Stevens 23 Sep ’12 at 6:43 pm

    Well, you did an awesome job in presenting that area so it really was a nice plug for both them and you. I’m not going to ask how much the paid you but next time you can ask for more. Congratulations, my fiend!

      I appreciate that, Monte. I guess Meandering Passage fell into the right place in a Google search for them. Paid! Heck, I’m just happy it didn’t cost me anything! LOL

  8. Tom Dills 23 Sep ’12 at 8:39 pm

    Way to go, Earl…that’s great! I agree that it was probably a keyword search that found you. I had a few of my recent Alaska photos linked to from a couple of places we visited. But nothing in the paper! Next, National Geographic?

      Thanks, Tom…don’t go holding your breath on that National Geographic thing…I’m certainly not! :-)

    Well deserved, Earl – your images from Cinque Terre are certainly worth to be seen from the Italian perspective, too. And as posts such as yours certainly help to boost tourism and with it that region’s income, it is only fair that you get a public acknowledgement for it.

      Thanks, Markus.
