Well, I actually got a response or two that the idea of having some
photos for sale.
I'm kind of dumbfounded actually.
But while I chew on the possibilities, I'd like to answer a couple
of questions and point out some of the issues that I've got to work
The biggest technical problem that I am facing has to do with the
printing of the images. While my current Epson Photo printer is
putting out some really nice images, I'm not sure whether or not
the ink will fade quickly or not. That happens to be one of the
larger problems with ink jet printers.
Sometime over the next month or two I'll be sending a couple of
test images to labs on the net, and I'm also going to test out the
digital printer from the local camera store as well as the walk-up
and do it yourself one at Costco.
And yes, once I figure all that out, I'd be glad to sign any images
that I print, using either my real name, or NSR or Santa if that
Next will come the e-commerce thing that will have to be connected
to the site, including pay-pal and being able to use credit cards
and the like for payments.
For those who want to use the old fashoned method of a check, snail
mail will work just fine.
I'm also going to purchase a couple of sets of frames that I saw
at Costco recently, because they seem to offer a high quality wood
frame at a really reasonable price.
And then there are all the issues with shipping, and dropping off
at UPS etc etc.
I'm not complaining, just letting you know that there are a whole
bunch of ducks that have to get all lined up.
And ducks, as you may know, are often slippery when wet and they
move around quite a bit.
Meanwhile, we skipped one of our "assigned rooms" for
this week's garbage day, and that means little time in front of
the computer this weekend.
The goal was to get at least 10 bags of junk either thrown out
or donated every week for 16 weeks, and here we are, one week behind
It's amazing just how much junk one can accumulate over almost
25 years in the same house.
