Actually, it's the first time I've ever run into one of my photos being used anywhere. I know they're out there, but it is so thrilling to actually run into one of them being used.

It's the cover of a quarterly report from one of the mutual funds I own (which is how I managed to stumble across it):

The original, uncropped and unedited, version is here:

Since this is a microstock site, I didn't really make any money to speak of (about $3 I think). And they don't have to (and didn't) credit me. But the psychic reward of seeing my own picture on the cover of something MORE than makes up for lack of other compensation! (Obviously I'm not a pro.)

Thought I'd share my happiness here. :) Thanks for listening.

Ken
