turns mud to money
Okay, not really. I saw this today and thought, "Oh, man. I should have sold my mud photos to finance all those race destination trips I want to make."
The above photo and the following two are really taken by: /Photos by John Churchman
The stock-photo photographer for Corbis, Getty and Photolibrary, among others, has sold a muddy-road photo to Subaru for an advertising campaign the automaker recently launched for its four-wheel-drive vehicles. Churchman declined to say how much he was paid for the shot but said it was in the thousands of dollars.
And just in case you thought I was kidding about the mud, look at these pics.
Right now though it is not a problem one little bit because what is it doing out? It is snowing. What was on my car this morning? Snow. What was it doing Monday? Snowing. Why did the kids come in early from recess, yes early from recess? Because it was too dang cold! What is it supposed to do Wed. Thurs and Fri? Snow. So for now, mud is not a problem other than the huge ruts that are frozen into place on the roads and the huge potholes threatening to swallow any car smaller than an army tank.
I promise next time I post, I will not complain about the weather.
