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.

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

In May 2019 I had three sales on EyeEm through Getty Images. I only earned a few cents though, no big hit.

Both photos are rather average and not outstanding memories from our Caribbean cruise a few years ago. But it seems that these unusual views are what customers are buying. Not the dream vacation white sandy beach with coconut palm tree and turquoise blue water. Nope… A view over an old marina on Isla Margarita and a view onto a harbour shot from the cruise ship with a crowd of tourists.

I wonder where I will find those images online… 🙂

Ok, “saleS” is a bit too much since I only had ONE sale on EyeEm but it was a small sale on Getty Images which tend to make me feel rather proud about it. Why? Due to the HUGE competition on Getty Images, that’s why 🙂

And I have sold a photo which I had already sold three times during 2018, so this is kind of my first bestseller 🙂

The original photograph on EyeEm can be seen – and purchased – here for a probably smaller fee *cough*
