Two sales reported today for low $$, both to Germany via a distributor, not leaving me with much! One was a book usage (a close-up of a toad), and this one was for a magazine.

sheep-crossing-road-at-the-tan-hill-inn-the-highest-pub-in-the-country-JRRN6E.jpg
 
Licensed this shot today. The Tan Hill Inn is, at 1,732 feet, the highest pub in Britain (not the “tallest pub”, which is what a couple of American tourists insisted they were looking for, when, years ago, they asked me for directions). It’s in the middle of nowhere, or what passes for the middle of nowhere on this small and over-crowded island.

 

I parked my campervan outside the Tan Hill Inn this time last year… to escape from the horrors of a family Christmas. And I never pass up the opportunity to call in for a beer or a meal at a pub where the unexpected happens quite regularly.

 

The best night was when my sister came up north for a visit, in springtime, and we gravitated to Tan Hill. The landlady was looking after some motherless lambs, which is how a dozen people found themselves sitting around the fire, each with a lamb to look after (we all had something else in common - slight dampness - as the lambs weren’t house-trained). The beer flowed, the conversation too, and the fire crackled.

 

Eventually, about the time when most other pubs would be thinking about closing, the landlady started chasing all the lambs around the pub… or were the lambs chasing her? When she got dizzy she retired to her bed, leaving me in charge of beer-pulling duties (and putting the money in the till). Memories are a bit hazy after that, but they’re warm. Warm and damp…

The Japanese uses were via a distributor which reduced my share somewhat but still worth having!

Ed... for reasons I don't really understand, it seems to take months for new pix to start selling. Like you, I've recently moved (well, six months ago), and only now are sales of this year's pix starting to sell. Keep the faith, sir...

 

I find the same thing -- new images have to "marinate" for at least a few months. That said, I've had better luck this year licensing recently captured images. Sometimes you just stumble upon subjects that happen to be in demand.

There's nothing I can do about it, of course, but almost all my sales in this last year are of images snapped in NYC. The future does not look bright.

On the brighter side, all those NYC images in your collection should keep bringing in dependable "passive" income. I find that to be the case with my Mexico images gathered during my many visits there. They just keep on selling...

I snapped this during a trip to a nearby food store. My share should easily cover the cost of the groceries that I bought. 😀

What a wonderful, heartwarming story, John. I would have loved to be at the peeing of the lambs....😁

Ed, save up for a flight to NYC once a year and cram in all the shooting you can do on a handful of days. Stay in a part of the city different from what you commonly photographed. Sometimes if you book far ahead, you get the best ticket prices, and most of us can handle a fleabag hotel for a few nights.
We once stayed in one where our shoes stuck to the gummy carpet. We couldn’t afford to do the things we wanted to do and pay high motel prices on top of it.
Ask if they spray for roaches! 😁 I can’t stand those.

Or maybe you could be a guest in that luxurious high rise your friend let you stay in....

Sometimes we dwell too long on the material value of a sale and not the warm story behind the picture. Thanks for telling it.
