    I don't know, but I think wdr-NY has a thing for Miss Sandler. She seems to appear in a lot of his photos.

    Steph is like my little sister--I have a thing for her, alright--it has do with my fascination of the pursuit of excellence.

    Stephanie is an incredible shooter, an elite shooter, and in my opinion--one of the most gifted in the world. She can be the best ever--of that, I have no doubt.

    I take a lot of photos of Steph because she shoots on my Dad's squad with Chris Vendel, Phil Boinske and Steve Huber--and because she stays with my Dad and Stepmother in their motorhome when she's shooting in NY.

    So... yes... I have a thing for her... but its not what you think.

    As for the photograph of the year, yes... the ATA hands out an award each year for the best nominated photo. I think the photos are voted on. It turns out that I did win last night--I woke up this morning to an email from Chris Vendel giving me the good news. Someone claimed my trophy for me (not sure who yet, and neither does Chris) I don't know which photo took the prize, but I'm very proud. And I extend a warm thanks to the person who nominated me--and all those who voted for me.

    Thank you again,

    Walker

    Walker, if ts.com readers would vote for the award, I believe you would have won also. Excellent photos.

    I believe TrapShootingUSA got the right man.

    Thanks for the pics and stories.
