Not sure how long the voting period lasts, but you were like 50 votes ahead of me last time I checked so the cat's in the bag I would say.

Not yet, no. I've been looking into it recently to see if there's a possibility to do a book for my upcoming series, but it's quite expensive from what I've garnered. At least, for something that's a good size and quality...
When I have the time and money, I might try something with blurb or a similar company but for now I have to focus on other projects. Do you have any tips in the book department?

Blurb is the way I plan to go. Then once I have those in hand, I can present them to various publishers so they can actually see what it would look like. Sort of like a proof copy.

I wonder if every big U.S. city has a giant neon "JESUS SAVES" sign. I know Atlanta does (on Big Bethel church) and there's on in Downtown Chicago too.

Did you bring the crucifix or did it just happen to be there?

Either way, brilliant work, probably one of my favourite of your photographs.

Jesus Saves sign in the background brings much sadness (to me) , heavy burden of the cross , but there still hope ( the sign in the background ) .
thats what i feel in this picture ,and i thank you for this picture :)

Thanks very much! Prints are of course available of this, but not through dA because I can't quality control here or sign & number the prints (I only sell limited editions). Send me a note with your email and I'll send you the details.
