  1. Sale! For mid-$$ Taken March 9, 2020, days before the first lockdown. One person died on this ship at sea and about twenty others caught COVID during the initial days of the pandemic. Oakland let them in to disembark and fly to their various homes, which was slightly controversial at the time.
  2. Does this mean less committed producers will get weeded out and more committed ones will get more sales, ya think?
  3. Hi Steve, Yeah, I have had a really tough year that has taken me away from photographing. Thanks for your positivity. I want to keep going. I, too, have been doing pretty well recently, relatively (small portolio), despite my drop in submissions. My sales have gone up substantially in 2021 as compared to 2020, and some are selling for decent amounts.
  4. I was super jazzed about this site, this community, doing relatively well, gaining skills, building a portfolio, and motivated to become a better photographer. I feel insulted and devalued (even if I hardly made a dime before). I guess they can just churn through us because someone new will come along? I think it's a mistake to break the enthusiasm of your providers. But not my call, I guess. Looking for a different route to get my fire going, because this situation is discouraging.
  5. I really enjoyed spying on people with my telephoto lens at the state fair. 🙂

  9. Two sales in one day, on the anniversary of George Floyd's death. Low $
  10. Thank you, friends. Yes, it's been a tough time. And did I mention I broke both my arms on March 12 rollerskating? Yep. I was without WiFi for about three weeks and couldn't type anyway. I did upload a bunch of photos a few days ago and it felt good to get back to the practice.
  11. I am soooo sorry to have missed all this excitement and gone silent for so long. Please forgive my absence. My mom was diagnosed with stage four cancer in April and my whole life turned upside down. In the midst of intense difficulty, it brought me joy to see my photo tied for first place amongst the photographers here whom I admire and learn from so much! I am not worthy!!! It's best that Gen won ultimately because there's not a chance in hell I could manage conducting the May challenge, but I am thrilled to get so much attention amongst colleagues!!! Thank you for voting and rooting us on. I
  12. Yes, this poor child radiated loneliness and discomfort. His guitar was taped with masking tape. He was out there every day.
