Humbling stock photo experience (2)

I’m baffled. Remember my humbling stock experience? It just happened again! Geo Magazine, one of the most prestigious magazines in the world, just bought one of my archive images. Again, my pro gears did not help me. I took the photo, again, long before I turned pro. This time with my first SLR, a first generation Canon Rebel mounted with the cheapo kit lens.
Wow.

A police investigator walks by an abandoned house where the body of Nancy Michaud was discovered Sunday May 18, 2008 in Riviere-Ouelle, Quebec. Quebec provincial police say they have arrested a man in the death of the political aide to a prominent provincial cabinet minister. Police, acting on a tip, found Nancy Michaud’s body Sunday afternoon in the basement of an abandoned home just a few kilometres from her own residence in Riviere-Ouelle, a small town 140 kilometres northeast of Quebec City.
