Saw this beautiful buck at the edge of the wilderness this morning. He was very cooperative in posing for a few captures 🙂 Also noticed this morning that somewhere along the line lately I blew through the 5000 accepted images at iStock / Getty! Two years ago I was looking forward to surpassing that mark but got so discouraged with the company that I stopped uploading. But a few days ago, much to my surprise I logged by best month there in a long time, enough payout to rethink my decision to ignore that portfolio. iStock / Getty was where my stock photography career began and it is my oldest portfolio, dating all the way back to 2006. It’s also a pretty good pictorial history of an entire decade of my life on this earth!
