  1. It’s been a busy month so haven’t had time to give this much thought but here are my three:

    Almost 15,000 images uploaded in two and a half years: that's good going (and a reminder to those who complain about poor sales that hard work pays off)...

    Absolutely: well deserved, Sally.

     

    Meanwhile...I should get to 3,000 by about 2021!

     

    I'll try not to complain too much - but no promises! 😅

    Many thanks, both! Yes, it does feel like a full-time job....not what I set out to do, but having lots of fun in the process!

    W9MD2G   Rich Dyson  Edinburgh, UK. 14th Aug 2019. Komische Oper Berlin return to the International Festival for Tchaikovsky's best-loved opera, based on Alexander Pushkin's classic verse novel. Tchaikovsky's heart-breaking love story uses the author's poetry to create lyrical scenes that contrast the austerities of country life with the excesses and opulence of the Russian imperial court. Playful, radical and perceptive, Kosky is one of the most renowned directors working in opera today. Credit: Rich Dyson/Alamy Live News

    Thanks, Alan. Something for almost everyone there!

  4. I had a Tweet used as an embedded Tweet by Huffington Post France. That’s legal. But then a French journalist (who ought to know better) cropped the photo from the Tweet and used it in a Tweet of her own. Not legal. I emailed her. She was very sniffy (I ought to be grateful for the promotion, etc) and simply deleted the Tweet. I do have a screenshot of it though. I sent her an invoice (very small amount) and not surprisingly it wasn’t paid. I completed the form for the European simple procedure but there isn’t an online way to submit this, unlike in the U.K., and you have to find an email address for the appropriate court eg in Paris and it’s almost impossible to know which one to send it to. I picked one in the district of her office and sent it off, but never got any kind of reply or acknowledgement. So unless this happens in the UK it seems very difficult to pursue.

    Ha Angel Falls... I did the foot and canoe ride as well. Then for the scenic flight, I was sitting next to the pilot in the Cessna. He turned the ignition on, nothing. Get out he barked with a screwdriver in hand. He fiddled a bit with the screwdriver and the propeller, we boarded again, success!  We were off...

     

      

    We flew in a three seater plane to Canaima from Southern Venezuela with a pilot who wore an eyepatch over one eye. I didn’t think it boded well, but we did arrive safely.

    A mere $1.21 for NU Editorial website and app multiple use, in perpetuity. What an insult and a joke! 

     

    Sorry but no idea how to post images here rather than screen capture and saving to Jpeg.

    You can opt out of NU of course. Or choose to remain in because sales will increase your ranking. It’s a difficult decision but I opted for the former to avoid these scenarios.

    Looks like an infringement or un-authorised use John,  if you fill in the form on the dashboard Alamy will pick up the issue. However it's anybody's guess how it will pan out.

     

    This happens to all of us at some time, shame they got you so early.

     

    T55J89 still makes me smile!

     

     

    Unless there is contact information, which I can’t see on that website/webpage, then unfortunately Alamy won’t chase it. There are gazillions of these fake type webpages copying Alamy images and there is very little one can do about them. If they use google ads, it may be worth reporting them as abusing copyright through the google ads abuse form.
