Compared to catching your own, it's spendy, but I think price is still pretty fair, as long as you stay away from places like Pike Place Market! I have noticed them getting much smaller. Two good crabs used to easily feed four of us, now we need three. Several local grocers have commented on that in the last couple of years. I also think the seasons are shorter and fewer locations available for non-commercial crabbers. Must admit, I am now hungry for crab, some really good sourdough, and that bottle of wine. I have been here in Washington for 30 years but grew up in the Bay Area. I miss that SF sourdough!
You are right, and I did mention in my original post that I have very few images with people. I am, without a doubt, NOT a newspaper-style editorial or a lifestyle photographer and I know that hurts my sales chances. People are tough for me as I am very, very much an introvert. Will need to work on that :-)
