    You'd reach a wider customer base if you set up an Etsy shop, then had your images printed to order at Vistaprint or Staples. You could also have your photos printed on apparel or other items at CafePress.

    No idea which way would be best for you, but I would love to see some of them if you don't mind. I understand if you don't want to do that.

    They are just to valuable to display on USMB. I 'am sure you understand.

    Too valuable to display on USMB.... uh.
    You can simply downsample the image or watermark them.
    It's not rocket science. You can see low quality, or watermarked fine-art photos all over the net. They are literally everywhere, and that is how they are displayed to sell. You can't sell anything without someone being able to view it.

    Resize them to something low-res and watermark them.

    I do this for a living, and there's just no real reason not to show off your work if you want to sell it.

    What makes you so certain they're worth money?

    Picture I stopped and took of a homeless man walking in front of a JP Morgan Chase headquarters in 2014.
