  1. If you go over to his profile https://discussion.alamy.com/profile/8326-alexg/ you'll notice that he does check in once in a while. Maybe ask him in his most recent thread? wim edit: if you quote him, then the little notifications bell will go off or at least show up on his page when he checks in.
  2. If you want to do damage to the political party using it, contact the pr office of their opponents. Or a big newspaper in that camp. Make sure your story is absolutely correct: that there can be no doubt that they didn't buy the image or are in no other way entitled to use it. Then it's the perfect adding insult to injury story. Also make sure the story and it's consequences does not hurt your cause nor yourself. (How good are you at chess?) wim
  3. Te Ara - The Encyclopedia of New Zealand: https://teara.govt.nz/en/native-plants-fungi These are digitized books: https://floraseries.landcareresearch.co.nz/pages/index.aspx wim
  4. Right, the image going live only after the database refresh makes sense. In any case, if you want to delete an image, do it as soon as possible. Don't even wait for an email. wim
  5. AFAIK that only applies to an image that has been uploaded without keywords and/or a caption. With those metadata present, the image will go live immediately after passing QC and can only be deleted afterwards. Meaning it will remain online for 6 months. wim
  6. Ahh but they never said how big that pot of gold would be 😂 wim
  7. My guess is that something like this is the radiator cap ornament / hood mascot in #1: (image #7) wim
  8. Ah how time flies. As Marx* said: Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana. My first 2 on Alamy: sale 23/6/2005 - scanned 35mm Velvia - Phnom Penh, Cambodia sale 1/7/2005, a week later! - Amarapura Myanmar - again scanned 35mm Velvia wim * Groucho not Karl - but you may have guessed.
  9. You're welcome! I forgot to mention they're all converted to black and white. But it looks as if they were initially chosen because of their quality in color. wim
  10. CD booklet of Purcell: King Arthur 1691 by the Gabrieli Consort & Players - Paul McCreesh - released in October 2019 Online booklet here. The printed booklet has different crops (all square) and is missing the Botallack Tin Mine one. HXGMKD - Botallack Tin Mine, Cornwall - Paul Williams C985CB - Borrowdale, Cumbria - Washington Imaging H4994R - Dunstanburgh Castle, Northumberland - Adam Burton JABB3G - Thaxted Morris Weekend, Essex - Brian Harris PEXXW2 - Summer solstice, Stonehenge, Wiltshire - Beth Mercer CPX4H2 - Milborne Port, Somerset - David Noton B71Y43 - Caudale Moor, Cumbria - Ashley Cooper H6NT13 - Stockley Bridge, Cumbria - Helen Hotson BCT1BR - Fishermen, North Sea - Jeff Rotman CX70YW - Brighton Pier, East Sussex - Emma Frater E0B55H - Cricket match, Tilford, Surrey - Pearl Bucknall AHKW67 - Flock and shepherd, Yorkshire - Gordon Langsbury If you want to know what the music is like: Preview. Whole concert. (Without the flags at hoigh for the honour of Old England at 1:22:00 ) And another interpretation by Vox Luminis - check out that same part from 1:03:40. 😁 (I was sitting 1st row here.) wim
  11. Your chance to give one to her as a Christmas present has just passed. 🎅 🤶 wim
  12. In our speak you could say in the metadata 😐 wim
  13. He clearly thinks it's worth it/hopes it will be worth it. He may be right. wim
  14. The front suspension in #1 is unlike a Rolls Royce. Could the head lights be WW1 blackout lights? The bonnet looks like it's covered with canvas or tarpaulin. wim
  15. Check every keyword on AoA and see if clients are actually using those. Or even looking for images of the subject at all. Like there have been 8 searches in all of 2019 for an image of a Ford Focus, and this is what clients have used to look for them: ford focus 2019 2 ford focus black 1 black ford focus 1 ford focus 1999 1 ford focus 1 ford focus 2018 1 Ford Focus ST 3 1 It's a wise move that you have photoshopped a UK license plate in. The first image that comes up for ford focus 2019 looks to be your car, but with a rather prominent Polish number plate. Which will only sell to Poland I guess. wim
  16. Maybe he's too busy over here. wim (not a fb user)
  17. Sales down -2.4% from 330 to 322. That's not very dramatic. However gross revenue down -19.6% from 14680 to 11802. Ouch! (Best year to date 2016 was 351 for 16798) Main reason: not adding enough new work due to all sorts of reasons. wim
  18. Subjects? Ehh..: Damp, Dark Winter. How can be a problem though. 😁 wim
  19. (not mine:) Not the ones we get in Europe. They're from China. The ones for the US are not made in Austin either: they're being assembled there. Which btw is quite normal: most systems are build to order, certainly high end systems. A look inside a US one: https://www.ifixit.com/Teardown/Mac+Pro+2019+Teardown/128922 No mentioning of any of the dozens of components made by American companies. Which technically could still be manufactured in China of course. The press release is a very clever bit of obfuscation in that department. wim
  20. Santa probably has figured out by now how to wiggle everything through the internet cables and how to surf the wifi waves with his sleigh and reindeer too. 😁 They do have some funny customs over there: a Christmas cracker is not for eating, though it looks like an oversized sweet, and people are wearing funny hats at the table. On the table is the turkey they didn't have at Thanksgiving because there's no such thing at this side of the pond. But the fretting about the cooking is much the same. Happy Christmas to you too! wim
  21. And some more here. UKNS - yes; fillers for very small stockings only. - $ Priest hearing confession. wim
  22. Lots of ideas and answers on the blog also: https://www.alamy.com/blog/ On the front page, check out the regular light boxes. Currently: https://www.alamy.com/search/lightbox/3678761.html or: https://www.alamy.com/category/lifestyle.html wim
