I have to admit I've seen worse in the Grafton and judging by this photo it hasn't changed much in the last 15 years or so...

Well this one serves my purpose... it gets the people to my stock sites, and to my product stores... so it's doing well by me...
And I happen to be that model... taken with a self timer... and most of those pictures are selling well on a number of stock sites.... :-)

Well complain to firefox then, what can I tell ya ?
It's a free site on geocites, built with their sitebuilder...
I have no control over how it appears on firefox.... all I know is most of the visitors are using IE and don't have a problem....

So I don't know what to say...

Imagine how well they would sell if you had a proper website then? Evolve, think bigger.

I have already said I'm NOT a designer, and I don't pose to be one.... however I have been doing photography since 1985, have won awards for my photography, and have been published too many times to list them all, but I do have Local, Regional, National, and International credits under my belt...

My photos also sell well on a number of stock sites,
and as you can see, I try to do nonconventional shots that will amuse people and give a little different flavor to the stock world.....

If they made you smile... then I am happy...
Hope your day is going well...

I think you're cute bennym. If your stuff sells this way cool, but I agree with superstoffe. If you sell items with that kinda boring and rather cheesy design on geocities, then you could sell alot more with a better site. I had my first site on geocities for free but it was set up better and more aesthetically pleasing. Anyway, good luck and you are very well mannered in your feedback to people being mean to you....

Thank you Perry...
I don't sell anything from my free geocites site.... My sales all come from professional agency sites...
My site is just there so I don't have to try and list a number of different URLs.... It's just a vehicle to get people to the links to the agency sites, and it works pretty well....

You're right about the rude people here though....
But I don't let it boither me because, 1. I'm makeing money, 2. I'm getting views, and 3. allot of these young newbees going into design work think their shit doesn't stink....and they have allot to learn yet... so let 'em talk shit all they want....

I have thousands... yes that's 1000's... not a mis-type... of sales of my stock photos to designers all over the country and in other countries too... I even get special request from designers to do specific shots, with me as the model I might add, and they purchase them through the agencies.... So, I know what works for me.... and I'm doing fine thank you...

Hope you all have a nice day :-)

Well Luke... I don't know what you mean by a double bagger... I'm sure here in the States it means something all together different then in the UK....

But what ever it means... I don't really give two shits anyway... :-)
