A robin perched on the arm of a park bench. Everything about it screamed " perfection". Didn't even look at the price as again I never buy photos.
On the way out I spoke with the girl on the desk who was manning the exhibition and said to her-" the one outstanding photo for me is the robin."
Well she beamed and said " that's mine " !!
Anyway she said a number in £. and without a second thought I said yes. She was so darned excited I couldn't believe it. She was maybe early 20's . She then said-" it's my first ever sale of one of my images".
Got her to sign and date it. Made my day...and hers ;)
Thats so nice and wonderful. The pic she sold may be only for a few Pounds but that happiness and satisfaction is priceless. U did make her day Cath . Now let me make urs. lol
This one is for u for being so nice and considerate.
