A Little Ping Pong and a Little Bitching

My son's friend Kendrick visited with us Saturday night for a little impromptu ping pong tourney. Great fun for all and I was even lucky enough that the boys' attention span was long enough to allow me to dash inside and get my lights and camera in order get this shot. Fun fun fun.

On the other hand, I am tired as . . . well, it rhymes with 'spit'. It's late Sunday/early Monday and I have been working like crazy tonight after the family got tucked in to print a 'spit'-load of photos for my physical portfolio that I will use for marketing purposes in an attempt to obtain some commercial accounts. I sincerely hope I am able to get some work lined up so I can continue paying the bills after my last day as a 15 year veteran finance professional on the 30th of this month. Quitting my job has been scary as 'spit' and it is pretty incredible how high and low one's confidence can be. Stay tuned . . . lot's more to come (and I can't even really speculate on what it will be).

Hey have you already considered selling your images to a stock house or two? Like Veer or Getty? I have no idea what kind of money is in that...but maybe it could pay ONE bill!
