Thanks for your thoughts Brian (and for news about George S).  I am
trying to work out ways of supplementing my income with photography
(otherwise I might as well save money on film and just click shutter
releases ;-)) and some of your points were worth thinking about.

I live near Cambridge and in Jesus Square there is a small market on
Saturdays in which craftsmen sell their wares.  2 stalls have
photographers selling their prints, monochrome and colour, to
punters.  The prints are really good, being of the sights of
Cambridge, and well mounted; but I have often wondered how many they
sell.  I shall ask next time I am there.

Hi folks,

Having recently had some large prints made of some of my better shots, and
bearing in mind that the local small art gallery owner had said to me about a
year ago that they get asked quite often by tourists if they have prints of
Sumner (the sea-side suburb where I live), I took a selection of
prints into the
gallery and caught both husband and wife (she runs the gallery) there.

They were very polite, but I did not get an acceptance.

So I got to thinking why.
