  1. Too funny, Michael. I have the same rug, blue denim furniture, and a dog that could be related to the one in your picture.
  2. It’s always good to know that trusting your instincts, ie.selling your lease and getting out of there, was the right thing to do, Edo. Interesting about the sign, Paulette. I think it was October when I walked by there last, and the sign said the restaurant was opening in January 2019. Sounds like there are lots of delays, for whatever reason.
  3. Edo, do you have any recent news of your old place in NYC? If not, and the moon and stars line up properly, I’ll be up there and can try to stop by and take a pic or two.
  4. You know you are a stock photographer when you learn there are structural problems, with a need for major reconstruction of a part of your home, and the only bright side you can see is the potential for photos of demolition, workmen, and the self-storage unit for your possessions.
  5. I’ve been checking that wiki link lately because I plan to visit Italy in the fall. I was glad to see the Italian laws are less strict than some other European countries. I photograph a lot of crowd scenes in France and Switzerland,, and do my best to get shots of unidentifiable people. I find viewing news photos taken by AFP photographers helpful when it comes to France. I’m still a little confused about what is allowed, but It seems to me that in France the laws aren’t all that clear and are open to interpretation as to what constitutes permission. Could Spain be the same? At times, I’ve held my camera up and asked if a photo of an adult(s) was ok. I assume that a nod or smile back can be considered permission (editorial only). And often, people in parades or demonstrations pose for photos when they see my camera. However, I rarely upload photos of French children, and don’t think I have ever included children’s photos from Switzerland in my port.
  6. .......when you go on holiday, but refuse to visit museums and venues where photos aren’t allowed.

  9. I live about an hour west of Palm Coast, so know it well. It’s a nice part of the state. My younger daughter lives a bit south of Edo’s old apartment in the city. I’m looking forward to some good photo opportunities, and hoping the summer heat holds off for awhile.
  10. Thanks anyway, Marianne. I thought it was really pretty, too. Daughter number 1 moved to California last year and I was visiting. Daughter number 2 lives in your neck of the woods, and I’ll be seeing her very soon. I must say, the east coast is much more familiar to me than the west! 😀
  11. Being from Florida, I know little about California birds. I’d appreciate a look from anyone knowledgeable. These two were spotted in Ojai Valley, Ventura County, in March: California Towhee, Melozone crissalis Adult male Spotted Towhee, Pipilo maculatus
  12. I agree. The way the situation was handled showed a lack of respect and common courtesy towards contributors. While I have never sold a live news photo until it’s gone into stock, and I can understand their wish to clean up the submission process, having the opportunity to submit in the case of something timely was always an Alamy plus, in my opinion. Occasionally, something of national or international importance happens in my university hometown, but I also spend a lot of time in large cities where it’s more likely I’ll come across something newsworthy. Alamy’s handling of this situation has left a bad taste, and I doubt I’d go to the bother of trying to connect with the helpful news team now.
  13. My tricky back went out again last Thursday when I was traveling. Stupid suitcase. It’s supposed to roll, not drag! Hope your back is right again soon, and you’re ready for your drive, Betty.
  14. Wishing you safe travels, Betty. My heart goes out to you.
  15. Thanks, Paulette. I ordered a slightly used copy. 😀
  16. Paulette, you beat me to it!
  17. Sold for a very nice fee. My highest so far. RM. Educational use. 25 years. "Reference Macmillan and Alamy contract dated February 2014.” I’m assuming that would be Macmillan Publishing.
  18. Congratulations, Paulette! Three people enjoy a canal-side picnic, complete with wine, on a sunny April afternoon in Paris. Greedy brown pelicans hustle for fish scraps at the John’s Pass docks, Madeira Beach, Florida. Paris office workers eat lunch around a La Défense wading pool on an exceptionally hot day in June.
