  1. Edo in Sevilla . . .

    The layers of important history here are endless.
  2. Edo in Sevilla . . .

    Thanks, Mark And I hope you know I feel for all sensible thinkers in the UK.
  3. Edo in Sevilla . . .

    Yes, there's a lot of history there, Wim. Calle Feria is where my realty office is. I've had lunch at the Mercado three times. I took the pic of the kids playing cards there.
  4. Edo in Sevilla . . .

    I signed a year's lease on a nice furnished one-bedroom apartment today. I'm in what I consider a perfect location, just off the double-wide avenue of Hercules in Alameda. Lots of bistros and tapas bar and stores of all kinds. I met an American woman who is an expat and part of that community. Now I must get a NIE number and open a Spanish bank account and do many more strange things without speaking more than a dozen words of Spanish. Poco a poco. Edo of Seville
  5. Favourite photos in November 18

    I'm being encouraged to snap kids here in Spain.
  6. sharpening by downsizing

    Yes, I'm caught up in the downsizing thing too, although I don't do it to "save" a questionable-sharpness image. They get dumped. So why then? Habit. It's now part of my step-by-step workflow. And of course I crop if a crop is called for. I shot for, aim for, common access editorial images, so a large file is not terribly important. Edo
  7. Hello from Italy

    Ciao, Flavio Good luck with your future efforts.
  8. Alamy in Spanish?

    I have several pressing issues that require immediate help. Learning Spanish is a long term project. And as I've said, I already have some basic travel Spanish. And yes -- I know about that school: https://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=es&u=https://www.eoisevilla.com/&prev=search
  9. Alamy in Spanish?

    Hola, Roma ad Michael I restarted my MacBook and Alamy went back to English. I have a little travel Spanish, but that doesn't help much in my search for an apartment or when I went to the University Hospital to try to get a flu shot. They found me one nurse who spoke Italian, which I do speak. I encounter young people on the streets here in Seville who speak English, and we talk about beer and tapas and their dogs, but the people I really need to speak QE2's language do not. No doctors who speak English? That's scary. Is it just me that is being plagued right now with endless demands to update everything? Gracious!
  10. Alamy in Spanish?

    This morning Alamy decided to display their home page in Spanish. Now everything is in Spanish. Yes, I am in Spain. No, I do not speak Spanish, nor did I ask for this change. I see no way to get back to English. ??? Edo
  11. Desktop or laptop?

    I used to work on a 21.5" iMac. After the fire that made me a nomad, someone bought me a MacBook Pro 13". It took me all of 10 minutes to get used to using it to do my PP and everything else. It reminded me of when I switched from reading printed books to a Kindle reader. That adjustment took no more than half a page to get used to. Edo
  12. Food Photographers?

    Thanks, Malcolm. That makes sense.
  13. Food Photographers?

    Do you put in the Latin name for the animal in a meat or fish dish you're shooting?
  14. Pig breed identification

    I saw lots of potbellied pigs in Vietnam, Niels, but almost all were black or dark tan and did not have that shortened face. Edo
  15. Pig breed identification

    I would call those Fat Pigs. More seriously, they look like fat Piétrain pigs.
