  1. Thanks so much for all the feedback! I will put a few up here and there, but since mine are almost all RAW, non-keyworded files I probably won't bother with too many. Hope everyone has had a good weekend 🙂
  2. My daughter got accepted into grad school at the University of Washington today! First of two choices. She'll hear from the second one next month but it's pretty much the first really good news we've had in quite awhile so we're all thrilled.
  3. Thanks everyone. I appreciate the feedback. I've got a few up already. Will probably just leave it at that.
  4. Hi All, I know that Alamy is mostly for editorial work, and I'm trying to work on that, but in the meantime I've got bunches of bokeh and texture images that I used for my artsy work in the past (closeups of rock surfaces, wood grain, paint strokes, soft focus bokeh in many colors, etc). Has anyone had any success with these sorts of images that would be appropriate for backgrounds? Is it worth my time to upload these? Would love your thoughts!

  6. I had this problem repeatedly last month. I recently got a new router and the problem seems to have resolved itself. Are you having any trouble with internet speed? I think that was my issue--photos were uploading too slowly and they would eventually be rejected with an error message.
  7. Still no sales at all but at least I got some zooms this year. Got more uploaded and worked on keywords quite a bit.
  8. I got a new network extender today and can finally upload photos again. Hurray! It still took 15 minutes to upload seven images because we have crappy internet out here in the woods but I will take what I can get 🙂
  9. Definitely Art for me, though I spent a number of years doing horse shows. That was quite enjoyable for awhile but I'm too darn old to stand ten hours ringside anymore! Stock is new for me but I'm trying to move in that direction. It's not easy for me, as I am socially awkward so people shots are difficult. I'm hoping to build up a portfolio of plants and gardening sorts of shots (I'm learning some Latin that way!). I do have some work on FAA. Need to build that portfolio up just as I do here. My favorite type of Art is ICM, which works well for me since my old eyes aren't working quite as wel
  10. Hi Chuck, Compared to catching your own, it's spendy, but I think price is still pretty fair, as long as you stay away from places like Pike Place Market! I have noticed them getting much smaller. Two good crabs used to easily feed four of us, now we need three. Several local grocers have commented on that in the last couple of years. I also think the seasons are shorter and fewer locations available for non-commercial crabbers. Must admit, I am now hungry for crab, some really good sourdough, and that bottle of wine. I have been here in Washington for 30 years but grew up in the B
  11. Been out of town on camping trip but finally got to check out this shot--great one, and just as relevant for that area today. You have a fascinating portfolio! Kelly PS Re the mushrooms, I've probably got them on our property!
  12. I might get run out of town for admitting this, but I'm not really a fan of oysters! Now a nice Dungeness crab is a different story :-) Kelly
  13. Thank you so much for all the tips! Most appreciated and I will take them all to heart :-) Chuck, it's nice to meet another Washingtonian--I'm in Belfair by Hood Canal.
  14. Hi Everyone, I've been slowly building up my portfolio here on Alamy and am hoping that some of you might find the time to offer me some constructive criticism. I do know that it is quite small, making me a tiny fish in a very large and talented pool, and I don't have many people shots, but is there any other help you can give me? I am working on my tagging (and going back to my first entries to add)--I think I started out with not enough but am wondering if now I'm adding too much? Any advice is most appreciated! Thank you in advance for your time. https://www.alamy.co
