Saw a guy about some cash.

...and he told me to come back Tuesday. He seemed interested in my portfolio but I'm not getting too excited about it just yet.

Gonna see a guy about some cash.

First, both display sections here have been updated, so check those out if you feel like it.

Second, tomorrow I'm going into TC to see a guy about purchasing some of my photography into his gallery. It's a tiny little shop but they do big business, so the potential is amazing. They also deal in paintings but it isn't terribly clear how they work that, whether they would make a high res. copy of the original and then give it back to me or what. The only piece I have worth selling right now is "Seventeenth" but there's not a remote chance in hell I'm ever letting a stranger have it, even for a healthy sum of money. But we'll see how selling off some photos goes first.

I'll update again tomorrow.

Some updates

No word yet on this week's sales but fingers are crossed due to the slight increase in holiday travelers milling around the gallery cluster in downtown. I'm aware it's a long shot but one can hope, can't he?

I've been struggling with some fresh additions to the "site." Namely an element in the Photography section that can take people to view my work that's been featured on, but they have some sort of block on blogger urls that prevents Trackbacks. Instead of being taken to the site you're taken to a white error page that states the url you're coming from is that of a spammer. There is a link on that page that allows you to bypass and move onward to see the destination if "this page is inaccurate" but it's an ugly process. Moreover their website bears no contact information to let me pose this problem to them so any sort of resolution can be reached. So until something on their end is hammered out I'll just have to stick with a minimalists Photography section.

A few Flickr mails have popped up in my account over there with wonderful compliments and questions from individuals who cited this blog as means of finding out about me, rather than just stumbling across my photos on Flickr itself. To those people: Thank you very much; I'm truly appreciate the kind words and inquiries and I promise I'll reply to each of you in due time.

Regarding content - I know I've been slacking at getting some updates on here but don't give up on this place yet. Things have been a little busy with organizing projects and portfolios offline so regrettably this spot's suffered. Check in soon and I promise there will be some new items to look at and comment on, if you feel so inclined.

Some Updates.

Each of the display sections have been updated to include a new piece each. Also, some of the interpretations for "Four Corners" that have floated around before I created this space have finally been posted as well, so take a gander and leave a comment if you have anything to add.

I would also like to ask that if anyone comes across this spot and likes anything they see then please help me out by sharing the link with anyone else whom may be interested in something that's here. It would be greatly appreciated, honest.

Offline, business is slow. The tourist rates have dropped incrementally since Christmas so sales of my prints have dwindled significantly. It's a minor lull, however. In this part of Michigan tourism is pretty constant (weather permitting) but the type of people who come up here alternate frequently. During holiday times, summer, and early fall there are a lot of people around who come simply to see the sights and to do some shopping in the downtown areas. Although I myself am a bit reclusive and not one for crowds of people I can't help but come to love and look forward to those times of the year now. The rest of our tourism traffic consists of the people coming up here to enjoy the outdoors and/or to play hard. The skiers, snowboarders, fishermen, et al.; when they venture into town it's mostly to pick up supplies, not to browse the downtown shops. However, with Valentine's Day coming closer I'm becoming cautiously optimistic.
