  1. We’ve been getting deliveries from local food businesses that have stepped in who normally don’t do home deliveries. A meat business that normally sells to the catering industry; a cheese shop that had to close; a vegetable market; an artisan dairy that normally only supplies to shops and so on. The produce is fantastic and so much better than from a supermarket, plus it helps to keep these businesses afloat. So I’ve been taking photos of food.

    My main point in posting, however, is to check if you are aware that the Times has now made the print edition available as a e-paper, that is, a complete facsimile of the print edition accessible on screen. I suspect it is only available to subscribers, but the link to it is here.

    Brilliant, thanks for that. Pity you cant get the Scottish version though.

    the Photographer in the photo was a Live News Photographer, so could the caption lead the viewer to the conclusion that the guy is out without good reason "Despite Coronavirus lockdown"





    Look, to clarify: the photographer who took the picture has a press card and can travel to take news photos. The person photographed lives locally and was out on his permitted walk. End of story.

    We are keeping back a few newspapers. But they're not as absorbent as they used to be when the ink came off on your fingers.

    Cheeky wipes. More environmentally friendly anyway.

    Hi, Noticed the caption below on an image uploaded to Live News yesterday, I wonder how many contributors would have included Alamy photographer in the caption and if they would why, what value does it bring to the image?

    Thanks in anticipation, for your thoughts.

  6. Having to visit a local hospital with my husband for some investigative tests, I was turfed out for half an hour. So what better to do than try and find the Coronavirus testing unit. Not an easy task in a maze of buildings and corridors. But worth it in the end as these images help to illustrate what is going on. And got used in the Scottish Sun.
