Check out this email I got the other day....
" My name is Alina Pavlidi in France with my dad.
This lady does not have a camera and is very poor could you help us with that.
She lives in Kampala she needs to have nice pictures taken of her to send to us.
We would in exchange be happy to include you in our Art for all gallery and expose or even sell your images including her images that would also help her travel to France ans visit her friend my father.
Thank you very much Alina Pavlidi you can contact us also at email@example.com"
At first I was like, wow, representation by a gallery? That might be nice... then I clicked on the link. The gallery specializes in EROTICA, among other things. Somehow, I don't think my Muyenga Mornings photos of nuns, men on bikes, and small children would quite fit in.
Which makes me wonder, how does this lady in Paris who runs an erotica gallery know a poor lady in Kampala???
I told my old roommate about it, and we had a good laugh. She's a photographer also, and not even a week later, she got the same email.
But in other good news, things my blog does for me, I'll soon be posting for the Huffington Blog, links to follow...
