  1. Its not the landlord/owner why has to pay council tax. You pay if you own or rent a home - You pay it to cover the council services that you receive. Its based on 2 adults living in a property - so there is a discount if there is only a single adult https://www.gov.uk/council-tax/who-has-to-pay Interestingly.... I see diplomats are not classified as Adults! Jools
  2. Beales Department Store - BBC News Website Alamy credit only https://www.bbc.com/news/business-51089167
  3. Apparently its the Americans that are making us serve beer "super chilled", and to attract the larger drinkers - plus its the fact that its quicker to pour, with less wastage (probably the real reason) https://www.irishtimes.com/news/cold-comfort-for-guinness-drinkers-1.160225 I still prefer a traditional hand pulled pint - served at room (or cellar) temperature None of this "Extra cold" for me thanks!
  4. Well, I'm guessing that Alamy see that by offering "packs" they will make more sales overall, even if each sale is slightly less. It might also mean that customers become more loyal, or "sticky" to Alamy. If you have bought a 10 pack - then next time you will look again at Alamy, rather than looking at another site #tryingtolookonthebrightside
  5. Sale Came through this month - for a story in July! - Distributor sale - Exclusive - $ I'm pleased the one we were on didn't crash! https://yle.fi/uutiset/3-10877270 https://svenska.yle.fi/artikel/2019/07/14/nio-doda-i-flygolycka-i-umea-alla-passagerare-var-svenska-medborgare
  6. I've had a couple of refunds - but the sale normally goes through again the next day - sometimes at a slightly different price! (maybe a change in licence type pr exchange rate?) You could set up a Google reverse image search, or use one of the image tracking websites to see if it gets used - That will see it if its on the web, but not used on a presentation of personal project. You could ask customer support what happened - they are normally quite helpful. Regards Jools
  7. My first year.... 1st sale came through in June..... 9 sales - $279 gross - all inclusive Range $5.20 - $125 (and I just received $12 from S*****imo) Jools
  8. looks like their staff photographer was out...... well, at one location anyway! https://www.devonlive.com/news/devon-news/crowds-turn-up-boxing-day-3681701
  9. Take my new Christmas present with me wherever I go! (RX100 VII) First tryout - Dartmoor Hunt, Boxing Day meet - https://www.alamy.com/search/lightbox/4014585.html Sent the link to "Devon Live" - who replied with Grrrr...... Jools
  10. Hey Ed If you are feeling festive, then you might like to try out my iBook version of "Charles Dickens - A Christmas Carol" https://books.apple.com/gb/book/a-christmas-carol/id589012991?mt=11&app=itunes The book contains all the original text (nicely out of copyright 🙂), but we also recorded a special "radio play" version, which is embedded into the book It was a bit of a test to see how easy it was to create an iBook, and embed other media, such as photographs, video and audio Reviews are positive - although someone didn't like the fact that it was not read word for word from the original text - which is why I describe it as a "audio adaptation" or "Radio Play"! I'd love to hear what you think! Jools
  11. If your worried - I would use an off camera flash - as long as the "flash" isn't in the field of view of the night vision sensor, it will be fine. In fact - I wouldn't expect any damage to a modern sensor. They should cope with headlights in a black scene for example.
  12. https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2019/nov/28/more-than-16000-cans-and-bottles-found-in-four-days-on-uk-beaches and a similar article in 2x Vietnamese sites! https://kinhtemoitruong.vn/hon-16000-lon-va-chai-duoc-tim-thay-chi-trong-4-ngay-tai-cac-bai-bien-o-anh-11553.html https://baotainguyenmoitruong.vn/hon-16-000-lon-va-chai-duoc-tim-thay-chi-trong-4-ngay-tai-cac-bai-bien-o-anh-296351.html All using the same image - Photographer.... me!
  13. Ahhh... that brings back memories - I studied in Middlesbrough (Teeside Uni) and the Transporter bridge was a favourite for an excuse away from the books. Back then it had a Yellow gondola. I see there is now a "visitor experience" where you can walk along the original walkways across the top. Back in my day this was a popular night time activity for students, after a few pints!
  14. Hand pull ferries are also available in Devon - here is the Exeter Ferry
