Default Something strange happened this weekend.

As some of you know, I sell my photographs at a number of local galleries in my town. This past weekend, I received a call on my cell phone. When I looked at the number I didn't recognize it. Normally, when that occurs, I don't answer the call. But this time I did.

The voice on the other end told me that her sister had purchased one of my framed prints of 'Scorton Marsh in Fall' and gave it to her as a present since both of them spent their childhood summers, not far from the marsh. At a cottage their parents had.

She mentioned how much she liked the photograph and looked at the back of the frame to see who the photographer was only to see my name. She couldn't believe that it was me.

You see, I was talking to the woman that bought my previous home 19years ago in a town about 70 miles from here.


So you want to be a better photographer? Open your eyes and take a look at what is all around you.
