I do apologise to the handful of you who read blog for my failure to post since January 2nd. There is a good reason: I was too lazy.

I have spent weeks procrastination about which online 'showcase I will sign up to so as to display and hopefully sell, some of my photographs. In the end, I decided to sign up with two, deviant art and redbubble.

Tower Bridge
Hopefully a more "gritty" image of this much photographed landmark.

Available for sale in various sizes and guises here.

Of the two, redbubble seems to offer the better finished product - and a generally more mature membership; its more serious. I have so far found deviant art to be rather "high school", but we'll have to see. I am only using its non-subscriber service until such time as (if) I feel its worth spending the money to sign up. Its all about costs and benefits.

I have so far sold (Thanks mate- you know who you are) one photograph through Redbubble (It will be slow to build up sales) and have made, wait for it, a profit of £7.20 - which is my 20% mark-up over cost price. So I will not be buying my Dutch barge any time soon :-)

Cutty Sark
This stylised image is of the hoarding that surrounds the dock where the Cutty Sark is being restored in Greenwich. It was one of those "white sky" days, so I gave it a subtle tweak in Photoshop!!
Available for sale here.

What I have little doubt tat I will be doing in the fullness of time is signing up to SmugMug's pro service. But I need cash and want to be selling only my very best 12-25 Megapixel Tiffs from there. Those photographs will be obscenely expensive and in very limited issue.

Work is a bit slow at the moment - typical of this time of year but I do have a few jobs that I'm churning through with a couple of other potential opportunities in the offing.
