  1. Forget yesteryear, I'm nostalgic for sales of last month. 😁 P.S. Only two small ones as mid-April looms, but that happened in March as well, which turned out to be a good month.
  2. This Panama City image brings back some pleasant memories. It looks as if the causeway has been spruced up since I was there over 20 years ago (Yikes!). Nice shot.
  3. Sorry to hear that. I'm not doing much better (2). Come to think of it, I need to drop a few pandemic pounds myself. 🍷
  4. Yes, it seems to be a traceable thread of sorts: digital technology ---> increased ease of production ----> huge rise in supply of images ---> birth of RF ----> rush to microstock ---> saturated markets ---> declining prices overall ---> starvation (I was hesitant to add this one).
  5. Fortunately, I haven't had either of those types of sales yet (famous last words). The PV ones are definitely troubling as Alamy has control over the pricing. I imagine that distributors can charge whatever they like.
  6. That's a good question. Do you judge the busker or the image? Edo will have a tough job on his hands. However, I get the feeling that he really knows his buskers. 🪕🎷
  7. I'm OK with distribution -- it's the way of the world now -- but I opted out of novel use a number of years ago because the only thing "novel" about it seemed to be the tiny prices. P.S. Still not crazy about certain aspects of PU (namely file size and refunds). However, volume of these types of licenses has increased, and it's proving to be an OK-ish market. Some of my recent PU sales even look like they could be legit.😉
  8. I don't think that it will will ever be the same after Liz. They don't make them like her any longer.
  9. Aren't these really Chinese distributor sales? I imagine that microstock prices are the norm in China.
  10. I guess it's a Chinese distributor then, so Alamy has no control over the pricing. It sounds as if eleven cents can go a long way in China.
  11. Yes, I think he might have applied the Disneyland filter in PS. That said, it certainly is a colourful image. I guess one would have had to have been there to truly appreciate the scene.
  12. I'm not a Royals follower, but I'll miss the Duke's one-liners. He always managed to inject some levity into what were often rather dour events.
