  1. Not a good month! 4 sales...I've been averaging 10 over the last year. 2 direct for low $ 2 Distro for mid $$ However I had more editorial uses reported in the sold thread than ever before so at least there are those in the pipeline, though probably for lowish ¢ I've added a lot of images in the last few months due to shooting lots on the effects of Covid 19 on the tourist resorts, which I'm continuing to do, and am hopeful that some of them will get picked up in the next few months... Phil
  2. It's happened to me a few times and it seems the bigger the company the pettier they are.... At the end of the day it's not worth the trouble to argue. They lose some potential publicity and we lose the price of a coffee😁 Phil
  3. I had a look also at V3, but it doesn't seem to be worth the amount they're asking for an upgrade... In my opinion they've overpriced it. Phil
  4. Many thanks 😁 This month I've appeared more times in this thread than ever, yet reported sales are down by 2/3rds! At least I know there's some in the pipeline Phil
  5. Ridiculous... This should not happen. 😬 Phil
  6. On 40% volume and 40% gross. 🤔 Still room for + changes Phil
  7. 2 days was on S****IMO!!! Normally instant on here... Checks on average every 8 - 10 uploads go through in less than 24hrs. Phil
  8. Last lot I did, last week, took 2 days. Think it's unrelated to QC stars here as I've got 5*. Phil
  9. Last two for me were cleared in less than 24hrs. Both in the last couple of weeks. Phil
  10. I can see 10 rings on both!!! Adobe more vivid colour overall. 9 Grey scale squares. Adobe has a noticeably deeper black and slightly brighter white. iMac Retina 4K, 21.5-inch, 2017 Phil
  11. Never delete cats. They have ways of finding out😉 Phil
  12. This may be of interest...Webinar: Strategies for Safely Covering Protests http://Visura.co/x/45168 Phil
  13. 10 sales for $180...too many too low fees😬 2 refunds, 1 resold at lower fee🤨 4 distro sales, inc highest & lowest $ Volume as average. Fees low... Phil
  14. Indeed.... And I got both the neg & the positive, have them framed together... Phil
  15. Detail of paper neg being photographed... This guy was in Havana, Cuba and that's me and Gill in the neg... Phil
  16. Its a camera minutera as used by street portrait photographers. They shot a paper neg, developed it inside the box, then flipped up the arm on the front and photographed the neg to make a positive which again was developed inside the box. Most of the cameras are homemade. I know a guy who still does this here in Tenerife, and there are quiet a few in Spain and also South America. Phil
  17. Most are in these galleries on my website: https://www.philcrean.com/costa_adeje_lockdown https://www.philcrean.com/lockdown_days https://www.philcrean.com/covid_stories Ryanair are not doing themselves any favours in how they're dealing with customers throughout this crisis. It seems that they're holding on to peoples money as long as possible and trying to pass off credit notes towards future flights instead of giving refunds. Tenerife, along with the rest of Spain, has closed it's borders to almost all international traffic and I don't expect it to re-open until July at the earliest. The effect on our economy is massive, and there is a lot of worried people wondering how the tourist industry is going to reorganise. I think this story is going to carry on for a long time. Phil
  18. To answer the original question....Shooting more... From the first day of the lockdown I felt it was important to document what was happening. Restricted by the State of Emergency laws I could only shoot at home, out the window, off the balcony and on occasional trips to the shops I took my camera but couldn't stop anywhere for more than a minute or two without risking a heavy fine from the boys in blue, but I made some photos that record my experience of that time. Since 23rd April I got authorisation from the Adeje council to go out and photograph in the municipality which has been an eerie experience, walking through deserted touristic areas felt like being in a sci fi movie where everyone has vanished! Anyway I believe I've captured some unique moments and scenes which will form part of an archive of a very strange time. This last week the de-escalation of restrictions has begun and I'm continuing to go out a couple of times each week to document the progress. So I've shot about 6000 images and about 800 images have gone on Alamy since 15th March when the lockdown began. Phil
  19. Interesting challenge...so here goes! 1) Self explanatory I hope😀 2) Not sure if cars are allowed in here🤔 3) ET ranted here🤪 Phil
