Symbiostock now at 250,000 images

My own efforts are slowly paying off as well – since I started my own stock photo agency, BackyardStockPhotos.com, I have now sold 12 images for a total of $120.

The more RF general type shots are going to the microstock agencies. I’ve got enough images on line to try that as an experiment to see if it is better for earnings. More in a couple of months once I see the results.
