Back in September 2006, I received an email from Next Advertising in Romania wanting to use this photo for billboards and flyers for a phone company. At first I thought it was someone who just wanted to steal the photo. It turned out to be legit and $4116.00 later (for a non-exclusive contract of course), Carlos the Frog was on display in Poland. Carlos is actually a rather famous frog (#13 image all-time on photoSIG) and I got a couple emails from people telling me that my photo was stolen.
