Tuesday I went to a free concert that Hope Partlow was doing at my local Wal-Mart. I took a few hundred photo's and printed some of the ones that I thought were the best on the store's Kodak Picture Maker ((I know not the best quality but it was all they had)) While I was looking them over, I sold some of them to some of the Wal-Mart people that were there. Granted I only made $12 but it's the first time I've actually been paid cash for any of my work. I also got some e-mail addresses from Hope and Brian, her bass player, so maybe I'll get some more work out of this. Makes me think I might be able to make a career of this instead of a hobby.



As always comments and critiques are appreciated.

Sweet. Good for you. It's quite a feeling the first time someone hands you $$$ for you work.

2 THINGS....
1. Congrats on the sale of your images. That is awesome.

2. Your Walmart has concerts??? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img] Our Walmart just has happy little old people handing out shopping carts.

Grats on the sale, I'm looking forward to my first.

Ditto what Kelly said, the most fun I've seen at a Walmart is drunk college kids riding the ponies and spaceships...

Our Sam's club had a greeter that sang great opera, tho. He loved to make the girls blush.

Cheers!

hey... at least the old folks are happy at your walmart! the ones where I live are all disgruntled and they don't give out stickers, they look at you as though it's your fault that they have to supplement their income with a paycheck from walmart. but hey, i still love me some walmart!!!


CONGRATS ON THE SALE!!! YIPPEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

XOXO,
maJOY.

Awesome dude, congrats! And double and triple ditto about the Wal-Mart... ours don't even have drunk college kids or disgruntled old people to keep it interesting! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img] I've never ever heard of having a concert in a Wal-Mart, but now that I've heard of it, I'd sure like to see one!
