Sure, everyone's got one of these, and I haven't had a zoom on Venice this year, but who cares, Venice is great.

Must agree with your sentiment. Spent a great week there with my wife and daughter back in the early 90's. Actually we were on a two week break, the other week being spent around Riva del Garda and trips into the mountains.

Andy, these days if they don't have a lift I stay on at ground level. Here's one of the many very good buskers I've heard here in Galway:

Al Portego, we've been going here for 20 years so we can even find it now.
If you want to save a few bob an ombra house wine is only 1€. It's not too bad.

A typical Australian shed roof made of corrugated iron, with a lot of copy space.

I note that Alamy has made full use of copy space.😂

The cats and an older photo that I had to rework, part of a series on a shop that repaired church and cathedral clocks in Nicaragua.

To share or not to share the good stuff.  Maude and Belle both want the canned food.

Enjoyed a trip to Yorkshire at the beginning of the month. I know there are thousands of bird pics on Alamy, but I thought I'd add a few more!

We're recently back from a dive trip to Bali, where I spent many many hours exploring a lot of "barren" sandy areas. Wow....so many good things to photograph, but oh so difficult. We were located right in front of Mt Agung, which has been erupting on and off for nearly 2 years. And as we travelled right at the end of the wet season, the volcanic ash had washed into the ocean and formed a thick "talc like" coating on top of the sand. The slightest fin kick wrong stirred it right up, and the goatfish, rays etc that feed in the area really made photography very difficult.

I've just processed and loaded the first 20 images. Here's 2 favourites. Although I did feel very sorry for the poor fish held in the lizardfish's mouth...it was struggling to get away.....but was soon to be dinner.

There may be an interesting story behind this. I was tempted to caption it, “Meet me at the corner of Michigan and Chestnut and bring the sh*t.”

From a series I took at Louisville at night at ISO 2500. Love being able to shoot so cleanly at this ISO.
Similar ones have already sold, so that's nice too:

I lose what I write if I upload more than two pix at once - hopefully third try is the charm:

Seeing these brings back good memories too. It's a fun city. 

Ironically, I'd uploaded these with some daytime shots taken at ISO 100, and one of those got me my first fail in quite a few years. These sailed through on their own (on my second try without the ISO 100 pix) with no problem.
