I started my photography business in 2008.  Shortly after starting my business I started shooting alphabet letters of architecture and other objects found in urban settings.  These letters can be used to spell words, or names to make contemporary art for you home.  This project took off, and became an overwhelming success.  I used the money from selling my alphabet letters to fund my photography business.  These letters are fantastic sellers and I’m thankfully too busy with my real passion to have time to sell them anymore.  So I’ve decided to sell the high resolution digital files for a fair price to the right person who is interested in making an abundance of extra income.  This idea will be unique to you, and if you're driven will make you lots of money.  The market is enormous!  If you’re interested and would like to discuss things further please contact me and please check out our alphabet photography click on “client” menu and enter the password “abc”.  We have b&w and color alphabets, and I’ve also custom created numerous word art pieces with quotes.  You’d receive everything with unlimited reproduction rights.  The letters can be put on anything you can think of or you can sell them just as letters to go in frames.  I always just sold them as letters for $5 per letter.  The profit margin is very high as it costs about 10-20 cents to print each letter and they sell for $5 each.  I look forward to hearing from you.

I'm doing Gold Coast also. Have you found out any more info?

I'm trying to be positive.

This is the second year in the new location and Amy did change the date which apparently conflicted with the Bears preseason game last year.

I think she's pretty amazing. Met and talked with her for an hour at the artist's party she threw at Promenade of Art this past weekend. She found out I was #1 on the waiting list and told me Sunday I was in.

I put in a friendship request because that is the only way you and I can message.,

Plus, I would like to be friends.
