The sincerest form of flattery

You're looking at the cover of the next Torch magazine, due around the middle of next month.

A laser-printed copy of the upcoming issue was openly resting on top of a pile at the top of Lee University President Paul Conn's desk today during his presidential office open house.

So what's so notable about the Torch?

The front page photo. I discovered that it was strikingly similar to a photo I had taken and submitted to Lee University's Office of Publications for use online or in print on February 4.
Fortunately, I have the honor of knowing the two students pictured in the image on the actual magazine cover, Brittanie Odell and Joshua Warlick.

Mr. Warlick told me that the photo shoot he was in for the Torch took place about two weeks ago, which would have been around February 12.

The photo I took was unposed. And true, the photo selected for the cover featured better composition and lighting, not to mention technologically up-to-date students.

The picture snapped for the cover of the Torch was ultimately a superior image. It looks great.

P.S. Bonus: If you look closely at the cover, you'll notice that the seasonal date was corrected by sticky note.
