I've been fortunate that my name's not John Smith or John Doe. The last name of Harrington is, relatively speaking, unique. I have friends that are Chris Anderson, Chris Morris, Patrick Johnson, and there's more than one of them that are professional photographers. Heck, even Kevin Gilbert, of Bluepixel fame has someone - also in Maryland no less - that is a photographer named Kevin Gilbert (atleast this guy uses Kevin T. Gilbert though). A friend of mine wrote to ask me if I was now working for Pictage - a photo lab service based in California. I'm familiar with them, as I use their services. Here's the e-mail that was sent:
From: firstname.lastname@example.orgYikes! No! I like Pictage, but I'm not working there! So, if you get an e-mail from Mr. Harrington, know that it's not this John Harrington - the one that's based in DC, is a full time photographer, who wrote a book, and who pens this blog. Oh, and my middle initial is "H", but I rarely use it.
