    I actually shot this for a builder client but I thought, why not upload it for stock. We'll see if it sells

  14. Images sold in May (one per day per contributor)

    For me, one was a performing arts theatre, another a casino and the other, a DC federal government building.....but I suppose all of mine could be venues for performances of one sort or another!

    Thanks Albert, for the spot!
  17. What have we learned about stock?

    1) That everything and anything can and does sell. 2) Having a large and diverse collection is very much a plus.....unless you are like Wim, who has a high quality and tightly edited collection. I don’t have the skill or discipline that Wim has. 3) That the internet, crowd sourcing and digital cameras in nearly everyone’s hands, have helped reduce the once healthy stock pricing.

    This photo has sold again and this time for a decent textbook price
  21. I thought I would be good to start a new thread, the old one was close to 50 pages deep. I hope it is a good omen that my first sale of 2018 was a book sale for $250! I want to be hopeful that these will be more commonplace in 2018 for all!
