  1. I too started out with the 5D being my first full frame camera. It produced some great images with the trusty 24-105mm lens before I upgraded to a MkII, then a Mk III, which I dunked in a pond and was written off, so replaced by the Mk IV. I've been very happy with all versions of the 5D. John.
  2. You need a caption and at least 5 tags (keywords) before they go on sale. Have you got the correct number of tags? John.
  3. 7 sales for £302. A strange month because sales were the worst for 15 months, but revenue the best for the last 5 months, and only $2 off being the best for 8 months. 1 sale for $$$, the highest amount since March 2018. Rolling views topped 5 figures (10062) on the 12th., the highest since December 2017, but zooms dropped off towards the end of the month - a trend which will continue probably. John.
  4. A mate of mine just texted me to say he had Coronavirus and was in hospital. He said not not to worry has he had been put on one of those new Dyson ventilators, and he is now picking up nicely! John.
  5. Just had a $131 sale of a butterfly (not exclusive though). Highest figure for a long time. (12th March 2018 actually!) John.
  6. Go to your dashboard at "My Alamy", on the tab near the top click on "account settings", then near to right "your payment info", press "edit", enter your password and you can change your bank details. John.
  7. I'll have to dig out the saxophone again, but learn how to play it properly this time! 'er indoors used to teach piano and still plays occasionally - perhaps we could both join the Alamy band? John.

  11. Yes, that was a good Stoke side at the time! We signed both Mark and his brother Neville(!) from the Vale. Mark was superb and could win games single-handedly. If he was injured the management kept it quiet as the crowd would have been half than if he'd played, he was that exciting a player. That side wasn't as good as the early 70's side with Jimmy Greenhoff, Gordon Banks and the maestro Alan Hudson in it - what a player he was!! We are staging a bit of a come back with Michael O'Neil in charge, and if we survive this season hopefully we will have a good shot at promotion next season. John.
  12. Got my first sale of the month today, a bit later than usual. Now that the dam has been burst......... $33 cleared balance, 9707 views and 57 zooms, so views and zooms holding up well. It's just those sales........ John.
  13. It's a wonder they weren't Cauliflower's.......
