A Disclaimer: While the book will be available to the U.S., Canada and several other counties when printed, there may be restrictions of where the book may be distributed to other locales around the world due to postage and shipping issues.

YouTube Trailer, Art

As I work on filming a trailer for my YouTube channel, some examples of art to give credibility are recommended and I as I combed through examples I might be able to use I came across a trove of my early photography days. This is a shot I might consider as one of several art image examples for the YouTube video trailer.
