Weekend portfolio case study #1

I study a portfolio every weekend and I thought I'd share what I study. Not all of it, only some parts of it.

Less Is More - Case In Point

The title of this blog; "Less Is More - Case In Point" refers to what I consider to be a pretty fair amount of downloads I have earned with a relatively small amount of images available...Specifically: Nearly $450.00 in earnings (523 downloads) since 2005 with a mere 31 images online.
