So if I could sell five photos at 20$ each USD then we’d be okay. Now if only I knew how to sell photos… or knew people who would buy them.

Still haven’t sold the Hammond. We have determined, however, that it is in the Romance series. It’s definitely dated 1969, and it’s got a Leslie cab… but it’s not a B3. Everyone wants a B3. Blasted B3s.

Dayle is being horribly whiney and I don’t know why. I think he’s making up for all the time he couldn’t whine at us while we were up North. Freak-cat.

My other photography selling idea requires that I sell a lot more volume – I have blank cards I can put my photos on, and sell them for like 5$ or something. That would require selling a lot more. However, anything I actually did sell would be that much closer to making rent, which would be good. Except the printer’s out of ink, so I can’t print the photos out, and I can’t put money into getting reprints, and I can’t buy an ink cartridge right now, so there would be the risk of putting money into that and not selling anything, and getting even farther behind. I can’t afford to get farther behind right now.

I don’t even know if people want to buy nature photography anyhow, and all my best work has trees and rocks in it, it seems.

I am spending today trying to come up with ways to make extra money. I would harass the people who owe me money, but it’s not like that would get me anywhere. If they can’t afford to pay me, harassing them isn’t going to change that. So very frustrating.

    I love your subway photos. Selling any of those?

    Do you have a link to your pictures? I especially love black and white photos. If you can do PayPal I may be willing to buy something…pay for shipping too. I’m looking for some nature (or people/natural) type of black and white photos for my walls in my room.

      Never mind the link. I found them on your website. 🙂

        😉 Okey. Most of my Nature stuff is colour… the black & white is more City-based.

          Ya I noticed that. I love the sunsets. That spider picture just about made me break down and cry from fear. And the homeless pic also made me break down and cry because it was just so beautiful and sad.

          Almost any of your color pictures could be converted to black and white I think. Not the sunsets of course!

            That’s true enough. Yah… sunsets lose a bit when they’re in black & white.

      Well, I just tried to sign up for PayPal – but they require a credit card, which I don’t have, for me to be able to accept payments. I’m set up with HyperWallet, but that might be just a canadian thing, I’m not really sure.

      Credit cards are the bane of my existance.

        I think I can use HyperWallet as well. I have never heard of it but it sounds like something I can do. I think I also have to be signed up before transferring cash though. It does have the option for United States Financial Institution.

    Here’s an option…I can pick a few pictures I like and pay you and have you print them and send them to me.

    OR

    I can just buy the “rights” to print them myself. That might be easier for you (me too maybe) unless other people want to purchase some as well.

      Hmmmm. In that case, I could do a higher quality scan to send you. Would certainly save on shipping costs, and works well for people with good printers… Nice thought, that one. It hadn’t occurred to me. 🙂 Thanks!

    I wonder if my friend George would be willing to go to Canada to pick up a new hammond. He collects vintage keyboards…

      Well, we’d be happy to put in the hands of a collector…
