A Big Surprise

A couple of weeks ago I took a short photography trip to Des Moines, Iowa. As part of that trip, I revisited the Iowa Women of Achievement Bridge. I photographed that bridge back in 2016 and was hoping to capture more images of this interesting contemporary structure. Here's my photo of the bridge from five years ago:

I waited until 30 or 40 minutes after sunset, but the bridge lights never went on. My photo shoot was spoiled.

I left the site and checked into my hotel--the Hampton Inn. As I entered the room, I was shocked to see my own photograph hanging on the wall!

I submit my pictures to a number of photo stock agencies, so I assume that the Hilton purchased my photograph from one of those agencies.

What an incredible coincidence!
