Phish and a little "Show and Tell"

I feel a bit of a ramble coming on ...

... first, Phish is currently playing (Billy Breathes). It's D's CD. This is so goofy ... D and I have been together for over 10 years and every time he plays this one (seriously, EVERY time) I ask him who it is - I REALLY like it a lot and I forget until the next time he pops it (I have a handful of CD's that I play and play and play simply because I like to sing-a-long and love who I love). Back to Phish ... so, D plays this CD earlier this weekend. I got smart this time - I added it to the 5 disc player and plan on listening to it for at least this next week ... I figure if I can get to the point that I can anticipate the next song then I'll remember who I'm listening to. I just visted their website (to get the links for all you loverlies) and saw that they are more prolific than rabbits. *giggles*

Speaking of websites ... a friend of mine has decided to sell some of her personal care products that are simply ... indulgent. :) I took a look at her site earlier and asked if she'd mind if I went in and switched things around a little. With her blessing, I have made some changes ... AND ... all of the photo's that are now on her website (with the exception of her adorable niece on the home page) are my photograhs. How cool is that?!?

Which leads me to the photo's that I used on her website:







Feel free to click on any of the above images to view them larger.

Go visit deirdre's INDULGENCE to check out her site and her stuff, too.

OK, so I have a question ... is there a market out their for photo's like these? I have been playing around with the idea that I would like to open my own ETSY store and ideally I'd like to sell other creations, but these are my photo's, so I think they's count ... let me know what you think.

Thanks! ~M~

Gorgeous photos! And yes, I think that there might be a market for beautiful photos. You also might search Etsy and see what is already there to give you some idea. =) Ciao, Shutterbug!

Love your photos and your friend's website looks awesome.

As for music, I never can identify who I'm listening to most of the time but having a hubby who used to be a DJ (years ago) helps. I just ask him and usually he knows the answer.

Nothing beats a weekend of SITC and a day at the beach with the hubby!!! You can definitely sell your own photos on etsy!Go for it girl!

Great photo's! Etsy is the best and what I love about it is that the people are friendly. If you have any questions about selling photography just go to their forum board and post your question. Folks there can help you out. I wish I knew more about selling photo's but I dont. That is on the back burner... someday ; )

Your photo's are amazing. You should check out some calendar or greetng card companies and submit a portfolio. They are really beautiful and I'm sure there is a company that would be interested in your work.

I love photos and yours are wonderful. I recently took part in a photo manipulation workshop on one of my yahoo groups. The idea is something you might want to look into.

I'm currently reading Mixed Emulsions by Angela Cartwright. If you get a chance check out her website, her work with photos is amazing - actually all her art work is awesome.

I can't wait to try some of the new techniques I've learned from the book and the workshop.
