My camera died while traveling in Peru. I sold it to a repair shop to mine for parts, and bought a Canon A520 for about 75% more than I would have had to pay in the US. I'm still traveling. Without my laptop, I use internet cafes and Windows Explorer is my only available photo management software. Naturally I decided to look into microstock photography under these conditions. I learned is that most agencies require a phone number, so I'm restricted as to where I can submit, too. I figure I'll learn a lot.

I got my first SLR after I moved to South Africa. I visited a game park in Zimbabwe and the elephants in my photos looked like large gray dots. I bought a used camera from a friend, and have had a camera nearby ever since. I went digital in 2003, partly to save money. I now take pictures of everything, because I can always delete! No processing costs.
