  1. Like many, I've been going back through old files. This image is not really exciting, except when I went to see how many images of this shrimp were on Alamy, I found zero. It's always a nice feeling having the only image of a subject on offer.....if anyone ever wants a shot of this lovely little shrimp of course.
  2. Thanks Gen. That's so lovely of you. It takes a lot more than two bouts of cancer in 17 months, and almost dying on the operating table to keep this old biddy down!!! I'm back to walking up to 35 km a week now, but it can be hard at my age. I hope the border closures don;t curtail your travels too much. cheers
  3. Not exciting. 60 licences for $2,786. So average price $46.33. Number of licences up by 6 from 2019, but revenue down $152. Only 138 images added, it's been a tough year, healthwise with two big cancer operations, and I did not pick up the camera for over 10 months. Nor have I been able to dive. With another surgery due this month on my dominant hand, I'll be out for another three months or so. After that, lets all hope covid vaccines start allowing us to travel again.
  4. Horrible month. 2 licences for $123.20. CTR lousy too. Just 2 zooms for the month. Worst month in a very long time.
  5. Coral polyps A temple procession, Bali. All the ladies dressed the same Human skulls, Trunyan cemetery, north Bali
  6. A Culture trip web sale for me, same low $ as mentioned above

  8. Another poor month, just 3 licences for $169.99, all direct & exclusive. CTR only .61, hit hard when someone searched my name and looked through nearly all my photos. I only got 1 zoom out of it. On the positive side, a decent $$$ dropped in 1 December.
  9. Wetland about 20 minutes away from us. A project to reclaim lands contaminated by an old antimony mine. It's looking lovely so far. away from us. A project

  12. We took a trip to Grafton, in northern NSW, Australia. It's a lovely old town about an hour away from us and each year their jacarandas transform the area into a sea of purple. Getting shots in the morning was a problem with lots of photographers out and about very early and hogging the roads. I was lucky to find this couple walking away as I arrived at one of the popular spots. It was even nicer they had such bright clothes on! This is the historical cathedral, looking lovely in afternoon light with a couple of jacarandas framing it.
  13. Low $$. An old shot from 2006 when I had just received my Canon 5D. Frame number 502. And rather poignant, as the same magpie family still come to see me most days and brought down this years chick 2 evenings ago for the first time.

  14. The jacaranda tree in the yard behind us has finally flowered, and the Blue Faced Honeyeaters love the nectar. It's a challenge to get a shot from almost underneath as most of the time the birds hang totally upsidedown so you can only see the back of their heads. I did get lucky a couple of times though. This is my favourite.
  15. Many thanks for choosing one of mine, there were so many amazing images.
  16. I had an awful October, just 5 licences for $130.17. CTR was great though at 1.64, with a few zooms where mine was the only image looked at. DACS $270.01
  17. Cal, yes, I did use fill flash but this is taken from about 12 meters away as the nest is in a neighbours yard with me up the top of a ladder in our yard. The nest is in shadow much of the rest of the day from overhanging branches and it's impossible to light the birds otherwise. The babies are fine, in fact one fell out of the nest prematurely so we took it into care each night, but put it in a hanging planter each morning in line of sight with the nest and the parents fed it. Once it was strong enough to fly a bit, we left it out overnight and the parents encouraged it to a safe spot overnig

  20. Same here. Sometimes it just won't work. I cleared my cache and it helped for the first day.....but back to almost not working again for me today.
  21. Mine was almost $60 up on last year and a decent $$$.
  22. My gross sales figure just popped over $50K. It's taken far too long, but gives some small encouragement.
  23. First licence of this image which was zoomed a few days ago. Low $$. On the ++ side however, it did get my gross sales over $50K.

  24. I have a lot of repeat sellers and I usually mention the number of times when I post an image in the "Images sold" section. Having a quick look a couple of images have sold upwards of 20 times over the years. Some via other agents, before I became exclusive to Alamy for my RM images. I also have a small number of images on "those" sites, some images sell weekly and have had well over 1,000 downloads.
  25. Peewee update. Baby bird is still surviving, although keeps hiding when scared. Still unable to fly, but is getting stronger and more sassy. We put it in a crate overnight to stop it becoming cat food as it tends to flutter to the ground in the early evening.
