  9. Reporting in...RF

    That's good to hear. I'd take an RF cherry pie over an RM candy bar anytime. Your RF sales are encouraging.
  10. Edo in San Miguel de Allende

    The current situation in Nicaragua sounds really bad, which is unfortunate. Things seemed to going quite well when I last visited in 2008. My favourite neighbourhoods in Mexico City are Coyoacán and Roma, both very pleasant. Not sure what the rents are like. Certainly cheaper than San Miguel, though.
  11. Reporting in...RF

    I haven’t gotten any RF candy bars. The recent ones are of the nice dinner at a moderately upscale restaurant variety. Only the RM was candy bar worthy. I’ll have the t-bone, medium, baked potato, salad, glass of iced tea and a piece of cherry pie, please. And here’s a nice tip.

    Glad it worked, Gennadii! Betty

    Rome was good for me in November....it wasn't as crowded and being alone, it didn't overwhelm me.

  15. Who Are We?

    Retired, living in Nicaragua (and plan to stay). Inherited some money and put it into photo gear. Setting up assignments for myself gives me something to focus on. Last photos uploaded have been orchids and people building barricades. Only professional (sort of) priors was being a reporter/photographer for a weekly paper in rural Virginia.

    I'd be cautious about anything in Central America as the bad things in the northern countries of Central America can affect Costa Rica (quite expensive) and Panama. My part-time housekeeper in Nicaragua has decided to go to Costa Rica since the hotel where she worked most of the time has had no business since the troubles began. I can hire her for another part day but she hates sitting at home. Other friends are also leaving for Germany (German husband, Nicaraguan wife and children). Portugal and Spain both seem to have gotten over their pasts and you'd be close to a number of other countries in Europe. Mexico may let you in as an artist as a full time resident, but the best place for a more cosmopolitan life seems to be certain neighborhoods in Mexico City. Right now, you're in a very touristy city -- some place in Oaxaca might less expensive. Meanwhile, I see things connected to the troubles that I'd like to photograph, but some photographers have had gear stolen, and I'm 70.

    OMG prices have really gone up. A haircut on Canal Street used to be $1.50.

    I lived in Rome in the '60s. It was wonderful back then. I was last there in 2008. The city has too many crushing problems now: too crowded, too expensive, a political zoo, and many others. I'm from New York, but Rome will always be my spiritual home. Edo
  19. Who Are We?

    Very interesting, Jeff and John. I'm glad I started this post.
  20. Edo in San Miguel de Allende

    Yes, I know it's rainy season...I just did Rome last year the last week of November and it was great weather for me...I don't do well in heat or crowds so it's a trade off.
  21. Edo in San Miguel de Allende

    November? Hmm. Check the weather for rain, if you're on a photo shoot.. I like the general look of the year-round weather in Porto -- not too cold in winter, not too hot in summer. But I'm not looking for Shangri-La. I had a haircut here in San Miguel today It cost me 50 pesos, which is $2.46US. A haircut in NYC costs $35 and up.
  22. Yesterday
  23. Images sold in June (one per day per contributor)

    Three similar all sold today -- distributor sales to Turkey. And all for very low amounts. Mothballed diesel locomotives on siding in southeastern Arizona, USA. 26 showing. There are said to be about 200 total.
  24. I just use my cell...costs me $10 a day to use in most countries the same as I would here.

  26. Who Are We?

    > What are you, and which group do you think is the largest on Alamy? full time stock shooter since joining first agency 1993; some educational assignments early on, a decade of visitor bureau shoots ending a decade ago... also stock investor since 1994 thanks to hating 3% interest rate on my savings back then; (am I a Double Stocker? Stocker Squared?) the latter takes minimal time yet can tower $$$-wise over former, especially recent years; coincidentally sold about half my shares this very day in one company I've held for few years: THANKS FACEBOOK !!! (symbol FB) so in 2018 my stock licensing income may be under 10% of my total income...? I so wish it was the other way around -- money making money is nice, but...
  27. Am cretin when it comes to apps. Just learn WhatsApp allows free intl phone calls. But if, say, calling a museum to get info, it won't work if they're not using it on call??? And one still has to be online so its NOT a way to avoid need SIM card or similar? Any comments-advice about WhatsApp whilst travel shooting appreciated...
