Image of child with leash

June 27th, 2007 · 4 Comments · Family Life, Photos, The BoyChild, Weirdness

A week ago Monday I got the following e-mail with a copy of a picture of the BoyChild:

Hello – I am and art buyer at an advertising agency in los angeles. An art
director here found an image of your son wearing a blue leash in a park. We
are interested in possilby using it in an Ad for Saturn vehicles. Would you
be interested?

Please call and or email at your earliest convenience.

Can you tell me what the highest resolution is of this image?

Thanks so much

I almost didn’t open the e-mail. I mean, “Image of child with leash” brings to mind all types of yucky imagery. But. I am curious. And the BoyChild did wear a leash when he was younger and we were out places. And sure enough, there was a picture of the BoyChild attached which I had taken when he was about 16 months old at one of the GirlChild’s soccer games. Wearing a leash!

I couldn’t for the life of me figure out where someone had seen this image. I have lots and lots of phots uploaded to my Flickr account. And I’ve got some at Picasa. And I’ve got a bunch on this blog. But I couldn’t find this particular picture in any of those placed. I finally remembered that Motherhood Uncensored had an entry about kids wearing leashes and I had posted a picture of the BoyChild wearing his leash. And I went searching late last night and found it!

Isn’t that weird? That someone could read something I posted on someone else’s blog and like it and e-mail me and offer money for it?

They sent me a copy of the mock-up for it. It’s really cute. But now they are saying the resolution might not be high enough for them to use. That would suck. And wouldn’t it make a great AD?

    I remember you linking me to that picture when I was having the great leash-debate-of-2005.

    How cool.

    Very very cute. I hope it gets used. But I have to wonder… why couldn’t they take their own picture instead of stalking you down through a web site? Sounds odd.
