    by Karenfoleyphotography | 2nd of January, 2014

    I'm a list maker. It's what I do. It's how I keep myself organized. I'm such an extreme list maker that my husband jokes that I need to keep lists of all the lists that I keep! Sometimes I write things on a list, just so I can cross them back... More

  • The Road to 3,000 Sales

    by Starletdarlene | 6th of May, 2013

  • Offering Free Photos

    by Guayaquilwriter | 24th of February, 2012

  • Frog in the bathroom ...

    by Bevanward | 28th of November, 2011

    On a recent work trip I opted to leave the toliet for Sebastian, a Green Tree Frog who I named after it seemed he wasn't hopping away. He spent his time either right in the bowl itself or under the rim. I found moths around the outdoor lights which he gladly ate in exchange... More

    After 20 years of living outside of the US, 2 years in Bermuda and 18 years in Japan, I am finally moving back to the US next month. After first I was a little upset about the move as I will really miss Japan. Japan is such a great place to live. After some thought, however,... More
  • Accelerating income from microstock: experience and a few thoughts!

    by Davidwatmough | 2nd of April, 2011

    by Psalm113v9 | 11th of June, 2010

    Boy Did we blow it, Yesterday at around 4:00pm there was a train derailment less than ½ mile from our house. My first instinct was to grab the cameras and run to snap a few photos (though my dear hubby was a little more cautious). But we were almost instantly told to evacuate.... More

  • Enjoying both worlds

    by Amitai | 17th of October, 2009

    I am not a professional photographer. Unfortunately Israel isn't very hospitable to those who wish to make a living out of photography (or perhaps I wasn't cut out of the same material that great tough photographers are made of...). So what can one do? how can you combine... More
