I do this from time to time, it's always amusing to see where your pictures end up!

Just found someone on eBay selling prints of one of my photos. I didn't even realise this was allowed?

I'm sure this question has been asked before but what's the strangest place you've found one of your photos?

In general that requires an extended license. Some agencies (Fotolia, for example) allow someone to do this and pay license by license as prints sell (one license for each sale)

My favorite "strange place" story was from a few years ago. My sister in law saw my picture (I do self portraits) in an ad for a visiting nurse service. I was pruning shrubs in the shot and the ad talked about how much better I was doing after my heart attack thanks to the visiting nurse. She shows this to another family member who complains "No one tells me anything! I didn't know she'd had a heart attack"!

Another one was when a teenage nephew opened the mail and a booklet from a local realtor touted how well he could do selling lakes region vacation homes. He was horrified that this awful company had broken into their lake house to take pictures of their garden and dock! I have a release from his parents for the shots of the house :)

Found on sale at Sears.  Try to find one better than this!  (At least it isn't a self portrait!)

I had one of my illustrations turn up in my Facebook newsfeed last week. Everytown for Gun Safety had licensed it that morning. I was glad it was put to such good use. :)

Not long ago I was confronted with one of my images on a billboard. Looking into it further, I found it was on multiple billboards in several cities and on the sides of buses! Even stranger, the picture was a pretty old one from a D100, which is what? Six mp? And it had been cropped!

So much for the "lots of megapixels theory".

I saw mine in local news, during a bank conference too... in front of 1500 professionals (a friend took a picture).
My face was on a show poster about depression documentary (yeah... I took a picture of myself when I was dead tired).
lol
