Can I just say how much I love Boise? So many people stopped by my booth at Wintry Market last weekend and shared stories about their grandmother’s teacup collection, or their memories of working on old typewriters, or their Idaho mountain adventures. The other Wintry vendors were all the most creative, eclectic, friendly people. I had just the best time with you, Boise.
One little girl chatted with me while looking through my Idaho stickers. She had bought a new toy deer and was specifically looking for stickers with plants on them. Her deer loves to eat plants, she informed me. She was just the cutest.
Another lovely lady told me about a friend of hers who, in the early days of computers, loved his typewriter so much he wrote his entire book on his typewriter for the experience – but then decided to do the next book on the computer.
Many people enjoyed guessing where different lake and mountain photographs were taken. I lost count of how many kids asked “What’s that?!?!” to the large typewriter photograph that was the centerpiece of my display. You have to be of a certain age to appreciate some of my photos, that’s for sure!
Quite a few people came to look more closely at the giant photograph of an old Shriners band that was hanging on the wall behind my booth. We had fun speculating about the year it was taken and I loved hearing anecdotes about relatives and friends who were Shriners in years past.
Once again, the weekend reminded me of how great this town is that I live in and how amazing the community of makers is in this valley. Thanks for a great Wintry Market, my friends, and I look forward to next year!
Welcome to my newly re-designed blog and website! It’s been a long time in the making, but I finally have a newly designed blog and portfolio/shop! It’s still a work in progress, of course. I’m working on moving some of my old blog content over from my old blog, a little at a time. And there’s still tons of photography to add to the shop. But we’re live, and I’m so happy you found your way here! Check out my about page to find out more about me and find a big list of places you can find my work. Get in touch via social media – lots of links on the right sidebar (or the bottom if you’re viewing this on your phone!). Or send me a note on the contact page. And I have an email newsletter, where I’ll send monthly updates about all things Jessica Torres Photography! Sign up right here to get on the list. Thanks for stopping by!
Guess what?!? My butterfly photograph is on the cover of a book in Holland! So exciting! That’s a picture of it on the iTunes store.
There have been a few exciting milestones in this fledgling photography career of mine -my first sale of a photograph to someone other than my mom or my sister; my first international print order; my first large, custom print order … And now my first book cover photograph!
I still always get a little thrill of surprise and happiness when someone buys one of my photographs for any reason, but a book cover is a big project!
The photo was licensed through Arcangel Images, you can see all of my images available for licensing on their website here.
You can also buy prints of the same butterfly image in the shop or on Etsy.
Thanks for stopping by to share in my excitement!
