It's March 1st, already! 2013 is going by like the speed of light. I decided to kick off the month off with a little o' green in the spirit of the quickly approching St. Patrick's Day.
Some of you may recall, I have an online gallery at Redbubble. I have a wide variety of photographs available and the great thing about the site is: They offer, greeting cards, postcards, prints, matted prints, mounted and framed prints, all at a great price. Plus, they ship ALL orders, then notify me of the sales. About a month ago, I had a single order of "Old International Farm Truck" in a 4x6 greeting card. I recently had another order for 10 more cards! They were impressed with the quality and ordered more, that is always great news to receive!
This image "Old International Farm Truck" is the detail of an International emblem on the old farm truck at my husband's family farm in Western Kansas. I took this photo in 2007 on the farm and my husband would like to restore the old farm truck some day, but for now it sits in the trees.
Additional auto images are available in the Crusin' album on Redbubble. The Crusin' album with some new images from the archives will be on the new website. Change is never an easy process, but this is one change I am looking forward to sharing with everyone. Hopefully I will have the new website ready by Easter.
Speaking of change, Apple is known for its remarkable marketing. "Think Different" is one of its most memorable campaigns -- it's "think differently" made the point. Good marketing is about aspiration, of making people believe that their lives will be better. "Think Different" brought out the very best in human nature, of people who had another viewpoint that enabled them to be truly great, not just for themselves but for humanity. The campaign defined the Apple brand for years.
This Apple commercial is one of my favorites - ever. Apple selected Richard Dreyfus to narrate the actual 1997 "Think Different" television commercial. The version below was narrated by Steve Jobs and never aired.
“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.” -Apple Inc.
