50+ sales!

My sales have slowed down significantly recently. But you've gotta love when those little surprises occur! Ever since I made my first sale, I made at least one sale per month. Lately, I feared I would break that trend, but I still got barely one sale per month. This month was just as uneventful, that is, until this week. A couple days ago, I was surprised by a nice income sale on an image which had never been sold before. I took it last spring near Denali Nat'l Park.

A backhoe was widening the area around the track, and the train was lined up, waiting to be filled. I named it "Alaska Railroad" because I like how it combines the train with Alaska's scenery. Yes, I know, it's rather brown, but at least it complements the train's color! :)

Yesterday, I made two subscription sales: 1 was that same train photo again! The other was one of my best sellers. Now I have two images that are one download away from Level 3! This image marked my 50th download. My paycheck is almost in reach!

The moral of the story: Don't despair when things are going slowly. You just might get a pleasant surprise!
