I’m a hobbyist photographer and I’m always looking to improve my craft. I learn what I can through practice but that can only get you so far. It’s always helpful to pick up a trick or two from someone who is an expert.
Until reading this article I didn’t know who Henri Cartier-Bresson was. Now I do and I appreciate his work and tips.
The page is easy to consume as it’s in easy list format. I especially like tip #7: ‘See the world like a painter’. Good tips.

Right now I’m surrounded by old textbooks.
Textbooks from the previous four years of my college life. Some textbooks I don’t think I ever opened. Some textbooks I think I used at most three times. Some textbooks make me recoil with bad memories of professors (who weren’t the greatest teacher [but I may not have been the greatest student either]).
So what’s a college student to do with so many old textbooks – gathering dust and taking up space?
Sell them on Amazon Marketplace!
This has been on my to-do list for the past two weeks and this night the time was finally right. I did some brief reading over the past two weeks about how Amazon Marketplace works — gauging the level of difficulty and time it would take.
There was no way I could predict how easy Amazon makes it to sell things. It’s so easy it’s almost fun.
Almost fun – this post was written 3/4’s of the way through listing all the textbooks. It’s super easy, but also super monotonous and this is a nice break.
So, to all my college and ex-college friends out there: If you have no more use for your college textbooks and have a free evening: List your books! Aint nothing so sweet as making money. Except lollipops. They’re sweeter. (It’s because of the sugar.)
[Update 1: Less than 24 hours from listing my textbooks one has already sold! That was time well spent...]
