I’m still trying to figure out these silly stock photo agencies. I’ve been selling photos to them for years, and guessing what they’d like and what they can’t use seems to require a genuine gypsy armed with crystal ball. Out of a batch of 40 photos I submitted, including nice shots that I personally would love in a set of clip art, they chose the four most boring and mundane photos and rejected the rest. They accepted a picture of ants, of tangled wires, of snow on a log, and of animal tracks.
I’m still half convinced that they buy things like this at random because they are, actually, fronts for huge stockpiles of pornography. Everything else is just a smoke screen.
In other news, today I started my own media company.
No, I’m not rich.
And in still other news I broke down and started consuming artificial sugars again.
So how was your Monday?
