SOLD !!!

A while back I received an email that at first I suspected was a phishing email – it was telling me that Getty Images had paid me a sum of money for one of only two photographs that I have licensed through them. It took me a while to be able to verify this but verify it as genuine I did. I’m not talking pennies either – someone paid a large sum of money for the use of this image – I know who they are but not what they want it for and I guess that I will never know that.

I am SOOO PLEASED though, I’ve always liked this image and it tickles me every time I remember the hassle I had taking it (click on the image to view it on Flickr for the story – although it will probably only interest technically minded people). The fact that someone else likes it enough to pay for it is the icing on the cake.

Photography is and always will be “just a hobby” to me … but a bit of recognition is nice too 😉
