Hey, would you look at that! The feature image you see above, taken by yours truly, was selected by Google to be featured in a #TeamPixel video! To say I’m excited about this would be just a wee bit of an understatement.
It may seem like a small achievement, but I take my photography pretty seriously, so it means the world to me to be recognized like this, even if only for a split second.
#TeamPixel for life!
Check out the video below, which was tweeted earlier today by the @madebygoogle account on Twitter. My shot is at the very end – don’t blink, or you might miss it.

For those who care, I took this photo using my Pixel 2 and the Moment New Macro Lens. It was a total spur of the moment shot, just toying around with the lens to see what it’s capable of. Much to my surprise, this one turned out pretty friggin sweet – and apparently, I’m not the only one who thinks so.
Thanks for making my day, Google!
If you’re on #TeamPixel, be sure to use the hashtag when sharing your photos on Twitter and Instagram. Google got ahold of me on IG and asked for permission to use the photo. I gladly obliged, and now here we are.
Mobile Photography Mondays
Of course, we also have a hashtag-themed photography “thang” around these parts. It’s #MobilePhotographyMondays, and we’d love for you (YES, YOU!) to submit a photo to be shared with our friends and family when the series returns on January 1st, 2018!
