It's rather odd. I met a past customer a few days ago and she apparently loved the photos I did for her. She wanted a photo session so I told her to wait three weeks and we'd do it in the park in the autumn colors. So, we did and the photos were quite good.

All the people who have had photos love them but I don't get word of mouth custom. It's very strange.

Ah well, I'm wrapping it up this year. I'm not going to spend another cent on photography anything for advertising or networking. I like the idea of having an exhibition of prints but after the exhibition I would be lumbered with a load of prints and frames that I'm probably end up having to toss in the garbage. I did try selling prints - had a nice one of the Vietnam wall. Nobody would come up with even the cost price of the print let alone of the frame.

I'm done with subsidizing any business.
