Ryukyu Rusty at National Geographic Traveler: Photo Contest !

Keep yer eyes on this guy, he's going places, I tell you.  Here's a photo Ryukyu Rusty has in National Geographic Traveler's 2011 Photo Contest. It's a fisherman casting his line off the cliffs during sunset at the Zanpamisaki Lighthouse in Okinawa, Japan.

HERE'S WHAT WE SHOULD ALL DO:

They have a whole bunch of buttons on the page for Facebook, Twitter, Google Buzz, Digg, StumbleUpon, Send to a Friend and even one button that says MORE.  I'm gonna try them all out and I hope some of my followers have the time, in their busy schedules, to hit all those buttons, too.

Ryukyu Rusty isn't really interested in winning some prize in a contest.  Somebody else, ahem- ahum, just put the photo in there for him.  But, wouldn't that be cool, if this photo showed up in National Geographic Traveler Magazine, someday?  Last time I looked there were only twelve-thousand-some other people entered in the contest.  Let's see what we can do to narrow down the odds a bit ! 

JUST HIT THE "HERE'S WHAT WE SHOULD ALL DO" LINK, OK ?

This pic has winner wrote all over it, I hope Rusty remembers you when he's a famous high flying photographer Mike.

Shared with my SU followers, on Twitter and also on my new Google + account.

Good luck Rusty.

FishHawk and Ryan,
Thanks for helping spread the word. I knew I could count on you two and a few other great friends.
Rusty doesn't owe me anything. Some sweetheart put his photo in the contest before he knew it !

Gene,
Thanks. I knew I could count on you, as well. Heck, it weren't for Rusty driving, I wouldn't get to see half the places we go.
I want him to win so we have an excuse to drink some beers!
