In the Times Online today - I was just on my way home and only took my camera out of my rucksack to make room for shopping. Got a couple of shots of the empty town centre and it proved worth the effort. 
If anyone gets the papery version of the Times I'd be interested to know it it made it into print.

A welcome $$$ from a busy Remembrance Sunday morning. I'm assuming this was the Guardian pics of the day licence, but it found a few uses at the time.

A newsletter / presentation use, totally mundane image but noteworthy as one of the very few images that I have uploaded a monochrome version along with the colour version ... the first mono license of an image that didn't originate from a film negative ...

Maybe it was the time of year (January) that I went to Egypt but I did not see or feel any biting insects while there.  

Michael, it may have been the bugs just didn’t like you. My sister tells people the best mosquito repellent she ever came across was to stand near me. They all swarmed me and left her alone. My blood must be high octane. :D

I went through life being bitten.

Mosquitoes didn’t like my husband. He was seldom ever bitten. We went night fishing from the bank once. I had on jeans, heavy socks, shirt and a jacket. I was eaten alive through my jeans and socks. Bob kept saying, “You’re crazy, it’s your imagination, there’s no mosquitos!”
The next morning, I counted 86 bites on one leg, 100 plus on the other. The swellings often touched each other, and the itching lasted days. My imagination made me pay.

Hi Betty, I too am a buffet for mosquitoes, always have been...hate em!  I think Wim was speaking metaphorically about the fleas, that the locals are on you like fleas when they see a tourist coming.  If there are mosquitoes there, they were not an issue for me.  It rarely rains there and so not much stagnant water.

Thanks Sally, My fisheye images do sell and are best suited for internal or landscape work. I purchased this lens 2nd hand for a cheap price. Its a fun lens to use and small but take care with the lens distortion.

Thanks Alan. I expect sometime I will do something similar and pick one up second hand. It looks like a lot of fun.

I thought it wasn't going to happen this month. The bottom has dropped out of my CTR, but now theses 2 have saved my month. Badger for a UK national newspaper. Below my average $xx but it will buy me a couple of pints at my favourite watering hole, when I'm allowed to go again. Beaver (its second outing) for an editorial website. This buys me 1 pint. Still chuffed with the sales though.

Only a high $ distributor license (editorial website), but it's good to see some end-of-the-year activity.

 

Only four sales to go, and I'll hit my monthly average despite sagging zooms and CTR. 😉

Editorial RF $$$ at 50%. This image was taken at a provincially run museum on the outskirts of Toronto that specializes in paintings of the Canadian landscape and First Nation artifacts.

I have visited it on two half days. The First Nation artifacts have sold well. Any First Nation related image anywhere sells well. Museum certainly worth a third visit after Covid 19.

Dropped in yesterday - my 210th sale of the year which equals my previous best (last year).  Revenue slightly down on last year though but a few days to go so I live in hope.  Newspaper use, low $$.  Harris Lodge, the Bullough Mausoleum and the Rum Cuillin hills from Harris Bay, Isle of Rum, Scotland, April 2016.
