Is your horse photo with the dogwood tree in Owensboro,KY available for purchase?

Real Estate Agent with Maverick Realty

Is your horse with the Dogwood tree available for purchase in a 16 x 20?  WHAT ???

Horse with Dogwood tree Owensboro, KY 

This is the question I received  about the above Horse photo in my email on Nov. 11, 2007.  At first I thought it was a silly joke.  He couldn't be serious, could he?  Here are the actual emails, with last names xxxx out for privacy. 

Date Nov. 11, 2008  Actual email I received:  "Good morning, I was wondering if the photo of the horse with the dogwood tree in the back ground would be available for purchase in a 16x20.  I work for Atmos Energy Corp and we are building a new office just off the bypass in Owensboro and need additional photos to hang." Larry xxxxx

I thought surely he doesn't mean my activerain picture?( I show a bigger photo later in blog that is easier to see :)

My response:   "Hi Larry,
     Are you serious?  Did you see it on the Internet? I am honored that you like it that much!  "Vickie McCartney

His response: "Yes, my wife and I travel around Kentucky and do photo work for Atmos Energy when they build new offices, I also work for Atmos. I was searching the web looking for additional Owensboro photos when I saw your photo. I really do like the photo, you were in the right place at the right time. Did you take it with film or digital?"  Larry

My response: "It is digital. I love that picture too! Hey, If I let you use it for free, could you give Vickie McCartney, Realtor in Owensboro, KY  credit for it?  I could really use the advertising since I am new to Owensboro?  (But I am not new to real estate)"  Vickie

(Note: I was trying to give away something for 29 days, so this was a perfect start.....)

His response: "When the photo is hung we put a label underneath with the photographer name and something about the photo. I can have a local lady with our company there in Owensboro arrange to contact you and if you can download the photo onto a cd that would be great. If you need a cd we would furnish also. The lady is Kay XXXXX, manager of public affairs."

His email to Kay, that she forwarded to me: "Kay would you contact a Vickie McCartney, broker at Home Reality Owensboro. 270-315-5354. She has a photo that would look good in the new office. She is willing to give us the photo (we would pay for enlarging) for photo credit. I agreed to this. Photo needs to be download onto a CD so I can have enlarged."

 Vickie:  Please forward me the horse photo.  Thank you, kc

I still can't believe someone offered to BUY my photo!  It feels good just to know someone noticed and liked it.....

I forwarded this photo and here it is in a bigger size so you can see it:Horse and Dogwood Tree in Owensboro, KY

I still can't believe someone offered to BUY my photo!  It feels good to know someone noticed and liked it.  But I really feel good about GIVING it.  I can't wait until the new Atmos Energy Building is complete.  It should be interesting to see how  this photo looks in a 16 x 20 size!

Hi Vickie, That is a beautiful photo.  I love horse...I will have to stop by and visit your blogs and photos when I have more time.  Also, I am going to be moving this year so I am curious how you got yourself up and running in a new market/area. I will talk to you at greater length later or perhaps I will find the answers on your blogs.  Happy New Year, (clicked you thru Nancy's post on New Years)

Hi Vickie, Didn't see any other horse photos on the AR Channel, so I am going to start to add some of mine.

Vickie, it is a gorgeous photo! It really does seem to capture your area. How flattering that he offered to buy it and how generous of you to give it to him. It will be exciting for you to see it in a lobby where hundreds of people will look at it every day.
