My life as a stock photo
My name is Magical Sunset and I am a stock photo. I was born on a beautiful September evening when a photographer pressed the button on her camera. That is when I appeared.
I was beautiful from the moment she first saw me, with shades of red, blue and orange, with the waves of the calm ocean glittering in the light of the sun and fluffy clouds illuminated into a flurry of red.
She took me home with her and put me into something called post processing program, basically, plastic surgery for photos. I came out even more beautiful, my colors were bright and vivid and details were even more visible. I was the most beautiful sunset ever.
She then put me on ftp and sent me to Dreamstime where I got my name, Magical Sunset. She also wrote some things about me to help others discover my beauty.
I waited for a bit in queue along with other images, who, like me, were waiting to make their debut online. Reaching review we all realized that some of us will never see the light of the internet but will instead be discarded like broken puppets. It was a very sad moment to see many of my fellow stock photos have their lives cut so tragically but, I had to move on and follow my destiny.
I appeared online and soon I was indexed in searches. People started buying me and spreading me around the world. I am a fulfilled stock photo these days, I have racked in a lot of sales and made my owner very proud.
This is my story and I hope it will inspire other young stock photos to follow me into the glory of the spotlight.
