  1. My shot of a Santander Bank frontage, at a now defunct agency, was used by the Guardian about 7 times. For anyone who is not selling anything, here's a tip. Upload a lot of photos of banks. Very boring, but they sell. When I studied photography at Paddington College in 1978 they never mentioned this. But we did learn how to copy photos with a 5 x 4 camera.
  2. I wonder what kind of advertising agency our uk Government uses. From Guardian 6/7/20: "There are thousands of bakeries from which the UK government had to choose to star in its latest public information campaign. The Haxby Bakehouse was probably the only one to have produced loaves flour-stencilled with “F*ck Boris” during last year’s general election. Nonetheless, a photograph of its owner, Phil Clayton, dusted with flour and carrying a tray of freshly baked goods appeared in national newspapers on Saturday with the headline “Welcome back to freshly baked bread”, to promote the government’s “Enjoy summer safely” campaign. On Monday evening the government pulled the adverts featuring Clayton, acknowledging that the photo had been used without his consent."
  3. Just one sale for low $$ gross this month. Plenty of zooms, but no sales, for archival stuff of LGBT demos in 1970's so ctr up. Bit demotivated but out yesterday to take snaps of notices in windows of students in C19 lockdown in Manchester, uk. I'm going to shoot some velvia. Occasionally I get the urge to do some slide film again.
  4. Castlefield canal basin in Manchester, uk, on a sunny afternoon. Country: WorldwideUsage: Presentation or newsletters, Use in a presentation/talk (eg,Powerpoint and Keynote) or in a newsletter. Just into $$. It doesn't always rain in Manchester.
  5. Sold on Ebay in the uk in lots of 500 slides at say £18 gross, I make it that 400,000 slides would gross about £14,000 before expenses. It would be a lot of work, however. They could be sold in larger lots for a less ambitious gross figure. I appreciate people on here might not want to do that. But large lots are far from worthless, in case anyone wants to go down that route.
  6. One could argue the same re indoors at shopping centres. I have sold a photo of a shop front in a mall and don't feel guilty. On a later occasion in the same mall security asked me to delete, which I did.
  7. A photo of photos. Country: Worldwide Usage: Presentation or newsletters, Uso en una presentación/charla (por ejemplo, Powerpoint y Keynote) o en un boletín informativo. Only $ but all sales welcome.
  8. Unless the company can quote some legal reason we can't think of I would stand firm and keep them online. Maybe not even reply any more.
  9. My payment arrived in Paypal today. One month it arrived on the 12th of the month. I think Alamy say it can take 9 business days from them starting the payment so I have learned to relax about it.

  14. Sometimes we just have to move to another section of the march as it's probably not worth a confrontation. Today I took photos of a black lives matter protest in Manchester, uk. People were really happy to hold up their placards for a photo and I thanked them all twice.
