triple treats

It's been a long hard road but finally I've ordered some postcard sets to go in my shop. I'm expecting the photo prints at any day now, and the postcards will probably take 2 weeks.

I don't think anyone really understands how tricky it can be doing a photography shop- not only the work of shooting, but the post-processing, the tiny tweaks that you have to do in order for the print to lay right -which can mean anything from Photoshop trickery right down to a total re-shoot of the image! (which is tricky if it's in another country.)

Then there's the ordering- and because the whole idea of this gig is to actually make money, there's very little I can spend on set-up, so then I have to decide which ones go to print now, and which ones wait until fruits have fruited. So I've only ordered 3 sets in the postcards to begin with, of what I hope will be popular subjects. They're the images you see here.

There's 2 more new arrivals in the shop too---

rose queen

milky way

--- and hopefully more tonight!

And one more thing, which I shouldn't really tell you about because I might jinx it, but then if I choose not to believe in the jinx...I can work up enough guts to show you one picture.

Can't tell you any more till Tuesday.

Oh! And I was featured in S and O Productions lovely blog- well, I say I was featured, I was in a treasury they liked. But it still counts!

Love the new photo series, Penny! I think my favorite is The Collectors--but I think you'll do well with all of them :) The new earrings are lovely too.

I love your new photos. Especially the Collectors series. And that last photo is intriguing. I can't wait to find out the mystery behind it!
