Marian Love Phillips shot this self-portrait as she stood in the shadows of Abraham Lincoln and Jefferson Davis statues at the Kentucky Monument in the Vicksburg National Military Park.
This past Sunday in The Vicksburg Post one of my pictures was once again published. I had taken it on a beautiful Sunday, February 6, 2011, while Bob and I went for a drive through our historical park. The Vicksburg Post will accept for publication photos submitted by readers. The photo should be current and of interest to the public, either because of their subject matter or their oddity, or the photographic skill shown. These are the criteria that will be used in determining which photos will be published. Submitted photos should be accompanied by complete caption info and include a phone number for the photographer, which will not be published. Photos may be submitted electronically or by mail. Photos are published at the top of the Classifieds Ads which normally have four to five pictures sent in by readers and say - Give Us Your Best Shot. It really makes you feel good to know that your photo was good enough to be published in your hometown paper.
