New Image Thread That Should Be Interesting

Okay... Here is another new and approved image thread that should be a lot of fun and very interesting.

We want to see the very fist images you sold here on FAA.

Post the very first image that you sold and then the 2nd oldest and then the 3rd and so on. Make sure you allow at least on other person to post before you post your next image.

Make sure you post the description with it because it is those descriptions that are maybe going to be picked up by Google.

We are also going to ask you to share at least three of the posts above you on you Social Media to help us all get a little extra exposure.

I am sure you know who to find you sales in the order they were made but for those that are new and may know how; go to behind the scenes and click on sales. Scroll all the way to the bottom and you will find your sales in the order you made them.

Or, click on Sales, then Balance and then Excel and you will get a spread sheet that has all of your sales in the order they were made with the first on starting at the top instead of having to scroll to the bottom.

I know that a lot of people do not like to share other people's work. That's fine... just don't join the group. But we want to stay positive here so we really do not need to hear your objection.

In this tread you can post any images rather they are public domain, family snap-shots, anything at all as long as you sold it no matter who bought it except yourself. We want to see everything so people can see the wide verity of things that sell not the just the best of what sells or gets uploaded, but all of what has sold.

My 2nd sale was this Doggie Diner from the turpentine addiction days when I was doing oil on canvas.

"One of many Doggie Diner eateries that were sprinkled along Northern California. This piece represents a time when things were simpler and the fascination for roadside architecture and all things whimsical was at its height."

My very first sale was about three weeks after I started selling on FAA, it was Maluaka Beach Sunset and I was thrilled!

Maluaka Beach is often also called Makena Beach. Makena is actually one beach down from this one. No matter what its name, it's breathtaking! Maluaka is my absolute favorite beach on Maui and a great place to see honu (sea turtles) during the day.

Innocence by William Bouguereau

William-Adolphe Bouguereau (French: November 30, 1825 - August 19, 1905) was a French academic painter and traditionalist. In his realistic genre paintings he used mythological themes, making modern interpretations of classical subjects, with an emphasis on the female human body. During his life he enjoyed significant popularity in France and the United States, was given numerous official honors, and received top prices for his work.

In this piece titled Moon Rise After the Rain I was playing with color and how the rain changes them as everything is washed clean. A twilight moonrise in the purply blues of evening.

Dedicated to our beautiful little Kandy Kane

This photograph is dedicated to our beautiful little Foster child.
Her name was Kandas.
We called her Kandy Kane because she came to us just before Christmas.
She brightened our lives and touched our souls.
She struggled with life since birth, but she always had a smile that could light up a room.
Kandy Kane entered the kingdom of Heaven March 1st ,2012 she was nine months old.
If love could have saved her, she would have lived forever.

2nd Sale - Sold 7/26/12 Desolate Splendor

Lake Jean, Rickets Glen State Park, Pennsylvania.
This image is of Lake Jean in the winter. The lake had a thin coat of ice and the sun was just perfect to reflect all the winter baron trees. It was a magical site that just had to be captured.

Harley Lights by Barbara Snyder

I took several shot of this bike and posted three different vies of it. All thee have sold over time.

I spent a three day weekend in Monterey California back in the first week of February 2013. We drove up the normally beautiful, scenic and famous coastal Highway One. But it was anything but scenic. It was all cold rain and wet fog for the entire trip north. Not exactly the kind of day I was hoping for.

On the way back however, it was still not a perfect "sun shinny day" as the song goes but the weather was much improved, although it was still colder then I can ever remember it being in Monterey.

Not many people were stopped along the way at the many turnouts as there usually is. But there was this one motorcycle rider that had stopped in a wide spot in the road with his Harley. He looked like he was in trouble so I pulled over and stopped, good sanitarian that I always am. Well, almost always.

And there it was a great angle and great view of the famous Bixby Bridge in the misty distance. And there also set this beautiful nearly new "Hog" just begging to have its picture taken against this beautiful background. (What? You never saw a hog beg?) I couldn't have staged it any better than that.

The rider was a returning home from his "weekend" house on 17 Mile Drive. (Who has a weekend home on 17 mile drive?!)

As it turns out he was a member of the invisible side of the rich and famous Hollywood industry; a producer, director, stuntman, cameraman, or writer or something of that nature.

We struck up a conversation and as these things seem too happened, he was best friends with the guy that owned our local Harley Davidson dealership. He was really pleased that I would be interested in having his bike in a photograph.

I asked for his address so I could send him a copy but he said no, that was okay, I didn't have to do that. I think he wanted to make sure I didn't turn into a stalker of something. I guess if you have enough money to own a "weekend" home on 17 Mile Drive, it is more of a top of the mind awareness kind of thing. This is not a problem I have to deal with.

In the entire 3 day weekend we only got a few shots that were we liked, this being one of them. However I did manage to somehow contact a severe case poison ivy for my trouble.

Oh, I guess I should mention that he was not in trouble at all. He was just stretching his legs and enjoying that beautiful view of the Bixby Bridge. This was another good example of getting a shot that I really, really like and all quit by accident.

Evel Knievel Tribute Motorcycle Abstract by Floyd Snyder

This motorcycle is part of Don Laughlin's Riverside Resort Hotel & Casino Classic Car Museum & Sales. It was built by California Motorcycle as a tribute to Evel Knievel.

Robert Craig "Evel" Knievel was an American stunt performer and entertainer. Over his career, he attempted more than 75 ramp-to-ramp motorcycle jumps, and, in 1974, a canyon jump across Snake River Canyon in the Skycycle X-2, a steam-powered rocket.

Los Alamos Stage Company by Floyd Snyder

The Alamos Stage Company hauled passengers and U.S. Mail to most of the communities that made up the area between Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo California. It included Santa Barbara, Los Olivos, and Los Alamos.

Both Cold Springs Tavern and Mattie's Tavern, old stagecoach stops, are operating today as dinner houses. The Santa Barbara Carriage Musem has dozens of the old stages and wagons that made the run over San Marcus Pass during the horse and buggy days of the old west.

Enjoy! Floyd Snyder, FASGallery.com

Avila Beach is a census-designated place in San Luis Obispo County, California, USA and located about 160 miles (257 km) northwest of Los Angeles, and about 200 miles south of San Francisco. The ZIP Code is 93424. The community is inside area code 805. The population was 1,627 at the 2010 census.

The name Avila commemorates Miguel ￿ila, who was granted Rancho San Miguelito in 1842. The town was established in the latter half of the 19th century, when it served as the main shipping port for San Luis Obispo. Around this time, Luigi Marre built a honeymoon hotel here and steamboats brought customers from San Francisco and Los Angeles.

Although Avila Beach still has a working commercial fishing pier and the inland areas have extensive apple orchards, tourism is now the main industry. There are few historical structures remaining; among the oldest is the Point San Luis Light, built in 1890 after a series of shipping accidents.

Number 1 From The Whites At Spanish Bay by Barbara Snyder

Spectacular Seaside Golf
Meandering among sweeping sand dunes along 17-Mile Drive, The Links at Spanish Bay unveils some of the most spectacular seaside views in Pebble Beach. The rolling fairways gently flow through and around the gorgeous dunescape, briefly weaving between towering Monterey Pines, before returning to the white sand of Spanish Bay Beach for a thrilling finish along the coast.

The spectacular setting offers panoramic ocean views of some of 17-Mile Drive’s most scenic stretches, showing off whitecaps bouncing on the power Pacific and a brilliant sunset. The Links at Spanish Bay is very much a sensory overload, with the smell of the beach carried in by a cooling ocean breeze, the sight of the spectacular jagged coastline, and the sound of the famed bagpiper leading you home at the end of a twilight round.
