  1. The change in Alamy commission has made me re-think my priorities. With a big book to finish, I’m letting sunny days go by. Though it’s a shame to miss those days out with my camera, I feel energised by the writing… and I’m on track to finish the book by the end of October. I’ll carry on shooting and uploading pix, but at a lower level. From now on, its plan B…
  2. With just ten images on display, you must have acute eyesight. 😎
  3. Me too: a couple of hours well-spent. I don't know how those girls hit the ball so hard, and find the corners of the court with such precision and regularity. And Emma has won the event without dropping a set (including the three preliminary matches she had to play as a qualifier). She will need a removals van to carry all the money she's going to make over the next ten years...
  4. Another article in the Guardian which may be of interest: interviews with some of the people who appeared in iconic photos from 9/11. Even if some of the photographers were thought to be “in the way”, when others were running away from the twin towers, it’s generally agreed, in retrospect, that it was a good thing that photographers were there to witness - and capture - the events of that day…
  5. Ed… You gave somebody the opportunity to be their better selves. They’ll be feeling fine, too, about this brief transaction. I was at a supermarket checkout the other day, and the lady in front of me was short of a couple of quid for the things she’d bought. Before she had to decide what to leave behind, I gave a note to the cashier. A smile was my reward…
  6. It's fascinating to see the world from a new angle.
  7. Yes, it'll be hard to replace that shortfall with extra sales. Fingers crossed that Alamy - with PA's extra 'muscle' - can exploit this vast compendium of imagery (rather than just exploiting the contributors 🙁)...
  8. One of my first pix on Alamy. Never sold (can't even recall it being zoomed). A footpath in the Lake District...
  9. Against all expectations, my sales are holding up. Alamy/PA should be tellings us what they're planning to do to increase sales even further. New sales initiatives, new markets, etc. We need enthusiasm... not more gloom...
  10. Never seem to get sales on the first day of the month, but two dropped in today. This is an angler on a small fishing lake in Cumbria...
  11. "Oh no, it won't". "Oh yes, it will!"... Licenced last week: the statue of Lord Baden-Powell, founder of the boy scout movement, on the quayside at Poole in Dorset. He's looking across to Brownsea Island where, in 1907, twenty boys pitched their tents and learned about self-reliance and the outdoor life…
  12. Something similar happened to me a while ago: finding a wallet in the street. The contents didn't reveal a phone number, but a few minutes Googling was all I needed. The guy was very happy to be reunited with his wallet, and it gave me a kick to do the 'detective work'...
  13. The spaghetti western that somehow never got made...
  14. Thankfully, the big red button on Donald Trump's desk was disengaged from the nuclear arsenal. Every time he pressed it, some flunky brought him a diet Coke...
  15. Sales steady for me. I've even allowed myself a brief moment of 'Alamy optimism'. Ah.. it's gone...
