  1. Oh Edo I'm jealous! (that's why I gave you a greenie) 🤢😎 Hoping to get to Cadiz to visit my niece sometime later this year or next. Can't wait.
  2. Lisa found one of mine in late March in the "Have you found any Alamy images?" thread on the site that shall not be named (although it's connected to Alamy) so figured I should check to see if it's shown up yet. That photo hasn't but had another iPhone image sale that showed up for April, so that's two for the month and one in the wings, I guess for May. All boats or beaches, guess it's good that summer is around the corner.
  3. This is also sailing - but please let me know if it's permissible Michael. It is the US tall ship Eagle, the US Coast Guard training ship for cadets. Here they are furling the sails before to docking In New London, Connecticut after a regatta. If this isn't "sport," since they are cadets, although they were part of a regatta made up of both Naval ships from around the world and "regular" folks on their yachts and other boats when this was taken, let me know, and I'll chose something else. Thanks!
  4. Thanks Colin. Yep you popped up while I was trying a new browser. I forgot, Safari doesn't work anymore for drag & drop, only Chrome. But when I tried dragging in a second photo (I tried 4 times!!!), my post disappeared and it got plugged into the internet ether. But at least I can post. Thanks for answering!
  5. #2 - also sailing: this one is between Niantic and New London, CT
  6. Congrats Michael! Sailing off Newport Rhode Island: I have to do one at a time - if I try to drag a second photo in, I lose my post. Here's #1:
  7. Well the fat lady hummed a short tune - had one drop in last night - UK sale - worldwide editorial use Unlimited duration for an RM image. $44. Earlier this year I had an RF image licensed for 5 years. I don't know why I bother worrying about RF or RM since Alamy doesn't honor my choice anyway. Since I was able to download through April 30, I'm guessing the (Alamy) month is over, although it isn't 5 PM here yet. Last minute licenses popping up elsewhere so at least that's something. The image was zoomed and it's a location I was thinking of returning to soon as I love visiting
  8. I've had a Manfrotto 190 MF4 carbon fiber (made in Italy) for over 15 years now and I've used it in salt water (dried up after) and it's light and still very solid. I used it when the Slik tripod I got as a college graduation gift (along with a couple of lenses for my very light Olympus OM-1 SLR) broke while I was shooting with my then new D70 -on assignment. I had no clue that tripods were rated for weight - fortunately I was holding the part that broke off. I got the Manfrotto at Adorama for around $200-250 back in 2006 which seemed like a small fortune back then when I was just starting out
  9. That bottom bird is especially beautiful. Sorry, all I've ever managed to id from California were gulls. My bird book is only for the Eastern US - I'm from NY - I've never seen anything like it. Best of luck I'm sure someone here will know.
  10. Hi. I'm wondering if any of you can id this tree and the lichen growing on it? I took the shot on a cloudy day this past Sunday on my way home from opening our family cottage near the beach in Connecticut. It is growing by the backwaters, a tidal salt marsh fed by the Long Island Sound close to where it meets the Atlantic Ocean, just off the coast of Rhode Island. (We used to "surf" on a friend's canoe where the waters would get rough when I was a kid - a bunch of us balanced on the benches, winner was the last one standing). Anyway, I think it could be a fruit tree of
  11. I just got a mega powerful MacBook Pro 15" with 32GB RAM blazing fast. I'm on the fence about selling my old MacBook Pro 13" (8GB RAM) but thinking of keeping it since the thought of taking this mega expensive laptop on the road scares me a bit ...so, not trying to highjack the thread but I am interested in what you decide. Here's my take on the various models I've used. The 13" does an okay job with LR and PS, even with 8GB RAM, 500GB SSD, even on my very large files, but with 42MP Sony files I found it was just filling up too fast and moving too slowly for me for everyday us
  12. I was annoyed to receive it since when they first started with reportage and then later with Live News, I was invited to submit - I even initially had to set up a second account so I had access (required by Alamy), that's how long ago it was. The Live New team have been great to deal with over the years and even helped me get a press pass to an event in Connecticut where I didn't have contacts (in most other cases I was shooting for an editorial client or didn't need a press pass). Honestly I've done better licensing directly, even to small local papers, which may be due in large p
  13. Quite a horse race 😎 Thanks for choosing one of mine! I helped you out with a tie-breaker but it was a tough choice - I like all the finalists!
  14. Nearly as old as I am! I was thinking of "The Spy Who Loved Me" and how long ago I went on my first date - my mother drove us to the movies LOL - but I was wrong again about the movie - it was actually "Live and Let Die." They may be formulaic, but I always love a good Bond flick. Sean Connery is still my fave. You youngsters don't know what you're missing! Never Say Never...
  15. Edo, LOL I was diagnosed with two different language processing learning disabilities at the ripe old age of 48 (along with ADHD), after 15 years as a trial attorney in NYC, arguing in court and writing lots of appellate briefs and motions, not to mention editing some for the partners I worked for, at their request, and I have been working as a freelance writer and editor for years. Sometimes we just learn to adapt because we don't know any better. 😎Hope I'm still taking pix when I' m 84! I don't feel qualified to comment on your portfolio except to say two thumbs up!
  16. Not sure where you have the measurements - but your site in progress looks wonderful so far! I'd contact contributor relations as suggested. I have some wildflowers found by the side of a lake in NY that look somewhat similar to some of yours and hope it'll give me a place to start. I wish I'd majored in botany although I do love looking through some huge books of flowers I bought from the remainder table back when you could actually walk into a bookstore and browse. Nice site - and please keep become a forum regular!
  17. I was thinking that being in the US might be the difference. Hopefully it'll be down for you soon! It would be nice to collect something and not just do all that work simply to get an image taken down.
  18. My new grandson - the only pix I'm allowed to post. Too bad he is the smiliest cutest baby ever.
  19. I get an error message. I was able to drag the screen into my reply and as you can see the the URL showed the :large after the jpg but I got image not found I'm using Chrome on a MAC. No clue why that would make any difference. I was on twitter earlier today, but I was using LR and PS and did just restart my MAC. This pbs.twimg.com page can’t be found No webpage was found for the web address:https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DuN-yJ0WkAAK4X1.jpg:large HTTP ERROR 404
  20. I could not drag an image in using Safari, but was able to add this one using Chrome. I wish they would fix it so that we can more easily add images again. Anyway, I am waiting for one of my photos to show up in the database, it passed QC today. Here's another meanwhile: Pollen covered eastern carpenter bee Xylocopa virginica feeds on bee balm Monarda didyma
  21. Wonderful capture LOL - it looks like a cartoon - fabulous! Lots of excellent photos here but had to a special thanks for this one for giving me a good laugh today! Guess this one posted twice too - it seems that I can't get the forum to work with Safari. Anyway, drag and drop in Chrome seems to be the only way to paste.
