My First 10 Microstock Images

I have decided to see if I can make a few extra bucks on the side by dabbling in microstock photography whilst I fill in time between my day job (not much time left to fill in after that), paying photography jobs (a lot of time between them) and everything else I do (which has a habit of filling in more time than I can afford).

2009 South Eastern Cash Dash BMX – Quick Pic

I just had to post a quick picture I found when going through the images I took at South Eastern today. This is a note for all the kids: part way into the final straight is not an appropriate time to check if dad got your tire pressure right. Do not follow the lead of Max Cairns below
