    Maybe a rush job for the page? The link to view images larger doesn't work, either.


    BTW, you might want to edit the caption for certain images of the submission (well, certainly this one): "Toby, aged 2 years" is nowhere to be seen (either that, or else he's a jolly big lad for his age! ).  I do hope that he's not on the end of that kite string! :)

    Sure, it was a generic caption for the set. I always edit before they go into stock.

  2. When I think about the dozens and dozens of events that I covered last year that won’t be happening this year, it is very sad, especially the book, fringe and international festivals in Edinburgh in August. Here are a few from last year.

    Wartime Experience Day, National Museum of Flight



    Jousting event at Linlithgow Palace


    An extinction rebellion protest at the Scottish Parliament

    Looks like they made a booboo with this. The image has now changed in the online version to a doorway. But the Tweet they did still has Ross Greer’s picture, though the article is nothing to do with him.

  4. 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.

    meanderingemu wrote, "Considering UK just had a clarification to Police that Professional News Photographers are essential service". The caption in question does not state that

    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.
