I have sold images of my hand deicing a frosted car, park and ride sign, Tesco lorry in narrow street, taxis in Turkey etc etc.

It's great to hear what does sell. Imagine a buyer entering the search parameter "Tesco lorry in narrow street," or even just "lorry in narrow street," it's amazing how specific some needs can be.
