Ha, you might remember this happy post from earlier this month:

My EyeEm Sales in November 2020

and guess what?  Copytrack has found the sold vintage Sauerland photo on BBC Serbia!

Село Оберкирхен је такође познато по суђењима осумњиченим вештицама.

We do feel honored! My husband thought I was crazy for uploading those old photos from the 1950s to EyeEm / Getty Images. MUHAHAHAAAAAA 😜😜😜

My husband did translate parts of the article with Google and it seems to be about the burning of witches in the last centuries including famous witch trials in Oberkirchen in the German Sauerland region – where this photo was taken. Very interesting read!

Hurray, I have sold one photo on Getty Images through EyeEm. I did earn less than 10 cents but hey, better than nothing. It’s an old photograph from the 1950s and something I never thought I would ever sell.

With the help of Copytrack I had found another one of my legally purchased stock photos on a travel website, it’s a whale watching picture from our Caribbean cruise a few weeks ago. It’s used for a handy article about what to do with just 48 hours on the beautiful Caribbean island St. Lucia, please check it out:

I am so very proud of my photo to be used for such an article! 🙂

New month, new sales (in the previous month). I have sold one photo of my daughter unwrapping Christmas gifts 🙂

It’s part of a whole series under the Christmas tree – cute as a button on her first Christmas.

I must admit I had and still have mixed feelings about uploading her (and her brother’s) photos to EyeEm and to Getty Images. And I currently have two copyright battles going on with websites that stole my kid’s photo without permission. I just hope it’s worth the hassle… I do recommend Copytrack in order to find copyright infringers, let me know if you are interested in more info on their free service 🙂

During June 2020 I was able to sell three stock photos on Getty Images through EyeEm:
