Ed, save up for a flight to NYC once a year and cram in all the shooting you can do on a handful of days. Stay in a part of the city different from what you commonly photographed. Sometimes if you book far ahead, you get the best ticket prices, and most of us can handle a fleabag hotel for a few nights.
We once stayed in one where our shoes stuck to the gummy carpet. We couldn’t afford to do the things we wanted to do and pay high motel prices on top of it.
Ask if they spray for roaches! 😁 I can’t stand those.

Or maybe you could be a guest in that luxurious high rise your friend let you stay in....

There's no profit these days in making a trip like that, Betty. And no one I know in NYC lives in a high-rise. In Dumbo, Brooklyn, I stayed at my friend's loft, a converted factory building, which she just sold. I'm a new European now (again), so I would be more likely to go to London or Paris to shoot. In fact a short trip (in the spring) will be to nearby Leeds or Manchester.

 

John and John are right. My NYC snaps will continue to sell and eventually the more recent stuff will start to sell too.

What a wonderful, heartwarming story, John. I would have loved to be at the peeing of the lambs....😁

 

Yeah, a dozen strangers, sat round a fire and drinking beer, each one stroking a lamb lying contentedly on their lap... like this was an everything occurrence (which, in the Yorkshire Dales, in springtime, it is)...

Licensed this shot today. The Tan Hill Inn is, at 1,732 feet, the highest pub in Britain (not the “tallest pub”, which is what a couple of American tourists insisted they were looking for, when, years ago, they asked me for directions). It’s in the middle of nowhere, or what passes for the middle of nowhere on this small and over-crowded island.

 

I parked my campervan outside the Tan Hill Inn this time last year… to escape from the horrors of a family Christmas. And I never pass up the opportunity to call in for a beer or a meal at a pub where the unexpected happens quite regularly.

 

The best night was when my sister came up north for a visit, in springtime, and we gravitated to Tan Hill. The landlady was looking after some motherless lambs, which is how a dozen people found themselves sitting around the fire, each with a lamb to look after (we all had something else in common - slight dampness - as the lambs weren’t house-trained). The beer flowed, the conversation too, and the fire crackled.

 

Eventually, about the time when most other pubs would be thinking about closing, the landlady started chasing all the lambs around the pub… or were the lambs chasing her? When she got dizzy she retired to her bed, leaving me in charge of beer-pulling duties (and putting the money in the till). Memories are a bit hazy after that, but they’re warm. Warm and damp…

 

 

I love hearing the story behind an image. So thanks for sharing.

As a fellow traveller, my motto is 'every day something new'. I love the unexpected.

Editorial web sites, apps & social media.  This one had a fast turnaround.  It was zoomed 5 days before the sale was reported, and the next day I found it online on a travel web page.

Two sales reported today for low $$, both to Germany via a distributor, not leaving me with much! One was a book usage (a close-up of a toad), and this one was for a magazine.

I did a double take when I saw this. I posted a couple of images of the same cottage in November. It's looking really derelict now. I don't know if it's earmarked for something ... demolition perhaps.

Wow, it's a small world, isn't it! It would be a shame if the cottage is demolished - it's really pretty and in a great position right by the Thames.

Finally a couple of healthy sales dropped in today for an early Xmas gift.  This one, from Philadelphia, used for Marketing Package for a very decent $$$

Always a pleasure to sell snaps taken on my allotment. This stepover apple was covered in fruit last year, but this year it's having time off. Don't know the variety as I inherited it and took it from another garden and replanted it here. It cropped late in the year. $ Fee just about enough to buy a couple of apples.

3 geology related sales came in today with identical terms and prices, so I assume the same client.

A straight photograph of a thing, after a hike into the bush. Very little artistry here. I waited an hour for a forest elf to appear to give a sense of scale, but alas I was all alone.

Ok, that loft is what I was remembering. You took a good or a few good photos from it, I seem to remember.

Now, me...if I moved to another continent, my heart would still be in my homeland, no matter how much I loved my new home. I would want to go back occasionally.  Like now, I’m living in Kansas. Love my new home and that I live 8 minutes away from my daughter. But I’m an Okie at heart and always will be.

I’m adaptable, I guess from moving around with an airman the first 3 1/2 years of our marriage. Still couldn’t take the Oklahoma out of me.
Sooner born and Sooner bred. When I die, I’ll be Sooner dead.

This sounds like an RF image that has been licensed as RM. Is that happening frequently these days?

A number of UKNS stocking-fillers have dropped in today. I hope we aren't going to lose a week's production and that this is it for 2019. 😞

Ditto plus a couple of decent print sales. This one is getting to be one of my best sellers.

A few stocking fillers for me too - all UKNS for $. This is my favourite, taken only a couple of months ago on a very rainy day spent in a bird hide - a blue tit in a spindle tree.
