    We dropped round to have coffee with a lovely couple we met at our recent exhibition and almost as soon as we settle down Bernard pointed to the wall and asked if I knew the location.

    That's a great pic I thought, then did a double-take and spotted it was one of mine!

    Apparently they had got it from an earlier craft-fair we had attended but thought they would have some fun seeing if I recognised it.

    Its not the first time we've been invited round by a purchaser to see where my work has ended up but its still a pleasure that I haven't got over yet

    I'm sure others must have similar experiences but as my photography is primarily a hobby that pays for itself its always a bit of a suprise when others seem to get so much pleasure from my work Smile

    I would love to know why a number of people have bought my 'best seller' (not in my pf on here) when I would say it's not especially one of my better efforts! Blush Grin But doing it through agencies means you never get to know.

    I cannot imagine it being hung on walls though - more likely used in mag articles or whatever.... but that's just a guess.

    It is a suprise what people buy sometimes isn't it CB, its often the ones I don't expect to sell that go first (and rarely anything that has done well here Wink )

    Absolutely............ you sometimes find yourself saying "Hang on a minute, I could have actually done it better" when something proves to be popular and - conversely - "I put a lot of effort into that photo, why isn't anyone buying it" Grin

    Glad it's just a tiny sideline and not something on which my standard of living depends. Hats off to those for whom it is full-time occupation. Smile

    Had a nice bit of indirect feedback on the whereabouts of another couple of pictures today.

    Pam was on duty in the Gallery when a couple came in and started chatting.

    Apparently they moved down here a year back and had purchased two photos from the Gallery that they had got framed and now they hung in the house.

    They said that they were still delighted with the images and hoped to be able to meet up with the photographer to get some more soon

    Pam was pleased to tell them that she was married to said photographer and to invite them to our exhibition in September (let's hope they like my new work this year! Grin )
