I had recently started posting pictures on Flickr, and as we planned our 2006 trip, I started wondering if I had any shots from our first venture that might be worth uploading.(Thanks GeekGod)
I dug into iPhoto, found the above shot, "antiqued it," and posted it to Flickr.
Then I promptly forgot about it.
That was until I received an email a few months later from a designer saying that he wanted to pay me for the rights to use the image as part of a book cover for a Simon and Schuster paperback.
I was shocked. I assumed it was a joke or a scam. But he provided his credentials and it quickly became apparent that he was completely legitimate. I agreed without hesitation.

Dude posted a photo he took in 2003 on Flickr. He then received an offer by a designer to use the image as a cover for a book. Neat! From Amateur Inspiration:
