Thanks for the wonderful review and vote Susie! Hey, I heard you on the last podcast (from last year I think?)- you're famous! :^)

I'm really impressed with both the quality of photographs and the presentation. Did you really take all of those? What kind of photography god are you?

Ahh Waldo, flattery is the sincerest form of bribery? (+comment vote for you)

I took all of the pictures that I used for the book over the last year or so, with the exception of the Sutro Tower image that I used as the background for the catalog page. I found it on flickr's creative commons search - here's the original taken by Tolka Rover, before I cleaned it up / photoshopped in the logo/books/text.

Very nice. I particularly like the picture of the man with an eye on his hand.

Thanks, that one is a self portrait.

I was born with a spare eye on the back of my hand. It often comes in handy for checking under the bed for spare change or... monsters!
