I submitted this photo for a charity event organized by our office. Someone bought this picture as a farewell gift to one of my collegues. It was sold for $50 and the proceed went to charity. It's the first and only time someone actually bought my photo. I know it's for charity - which is great - but still, someone paid for it.. :-)
