This photo will soon be on the cover of your Marysville/Everett, Washington map published by Langenscheidt Publishing! So please ask me for directions on how to get to Marysville and I will gladly whip out my map to show you!!! (Of course, I'll take a pic of the actual map as soon as I get one!)
Here's the exciting Flickr fantasy story:
While I was in Wisconsin, I received an email from a photo researcher. She said she was interested in using my Flickr photo of the lavender fields for a map publication. So, with the help of my savvy sister, I negotiated a fair price for the use of this photo for the next three years. Not enough to buy a new camera lens, but a chunk of change for the lens fund! Not enough to quit my day job, but inspiration for a few photo daydreams.
And, I had JUST changed my Flickr profile to read: email me if you would like to use one of my photos for some exciting enterprise!
There you go! Can hardly wait for show and tell!
Photo fun pays off!
