As unlikely as this may sound, I have on occasion been asked: “Where can I buy prints of some of these pieces you shoot? Or some of the other stuff you’ve shown me before?”
And up to now, the answer’s been “Call me and we’ll work something out.”
Which sounds great, but somehow never seems to work, either because the controlled substances wear off, or the phone’s out of order, or there are bills to pay, or the victim gets help, whatever.
So I get why it doesn’t happen, but still… I’ve always wondered, “what if I could soak these lunatics while the insanity’s still in control?”
So I’ve decided to try an experiment.
I’ve signed up for a website where you can order some things online. At the moment the choices are just some few of the prettier Ecuadoran landscapes and people, and a handful of flowers, but I’m expecting to add more as time and technology permit. I’m also going back to shooting the sort of things that look pretty hanging on the wall.
Prints are available in several sizes and every level of finish from plain prints in envelopes to full bore mounted and framed “art” pieces, if that’s your thing. I’m thinking the prices are basically in a range from “low” to “reasonable” (but you’ve got to order big fancy pieces to get up into “reasonable”).
It’s all handled more or less automagically. Yes, they take plastic, yes, there’s a money back guarantee, And yes, the lab does good work. And no, the prints aren’t actually signed; we’ll still have to work that out between us.
The website is behind the kitty on the bicycle.
(I give you a kitty on a bicycle because (1) this is the internets, made up of equal parts cat videos, cat pictures, and pornography, and cat pictures are the only one of those I have on hand, (2) because Rhiannon DID like to stand on the bicycle, which is both cute enough and odd enough to be memorable, and (3) because people will sometimes reflexively click on cat pictures without thinking “what the heck am I doing?” and some of you may therefore wind up at the website. I think this is called product placement or some such thing.)
Enjoy. Have fun. Spend money. Remember Thanksgiving’s coming up and then the fat guy in red rolls into town.
