Charming image. Apparently Ottawa has changed a lot since I was there last. I remember seeing dinosaurs (of the political variety), but no elephants. 😎

"Elephants doing something". Perfect.

 

Paulette

thanks.  that was such a fun hour at that waterhole.  advantage of going to a park (Addo, South Africa) that is mainly about elephants, when you find some you just hang around and wait for some entertainment.

Editorial RF Personal Use calculator price.

 

In the mid 1970s I photographed a large coffee table book that was published by The New York Graphic Society in the USA and McClelland and Stewart in Canada. The book covered historic mills in eastern/central Canada, and the north eastern USA. This historic grist mill, in Ohio, was in the book.

 

The publisher still passes on requests for prints or digital files, of specific mills, from people who have seen the book. People who feel they have a connection to a specific mill. These people are willing to pay a reasonable amount for a print or digital file.

 

It could be that their family once owned the mill, or they volunteer at the local historic society, or they grew up around the corner from the mill, or the building or area has some other meaning to them.

 

So I believe, even if the buyer has not seen the book, that this sale is a genuine PU.

 

Alamy is primarily a wholesale business to business operation. In a wholesale business, some clients can leverage their buying power to negotiate a lower price. No such leverage exists for the one off retail buyer using the price calculator, and a credit card, to purchase a Personal Use license.

 

This lack of negotiating power for a PU is why the price paid for a PU license has remained stable over the years. As the average price for all Alamy licenses falls, then the average value of a stable PU license approaches the average for all licenses. PU prices start to look like any other Alamy price.

 

There are more higher spending retail buyers out there, than there are penny pinching wholesale buyers. There is great potential for both volume and price stability with retail PU buyers. Amazon does retail, why not stock photo agencies?

If you click edit and double click the image, tick the 'Keep original aspect ratio' box, it will look right then

This is a throw my flat cap up in the air day. First underwater pic sale since 2016. I captured this critter on slide film in 1998, in a previous life. 

 

Worldwide editorial magazine, print or web, multiple use for 2 years. $xx, above my average (2.5 pints of beer in my favourite watering hole).

You're welcome Gen! I really like the composition in this one. The two trees balance the image really well. The article was interesting too. I learned something about spinifex circles! Glad you got a decent license fee for it.

The sun was a little too low when we went for a walk but it was far too hot to go earlier, well into the 40C. We were the only campers there not surprisingly. 

Anyway, I deserved it because that's what the flies were like during the walk. Here and here

you have obviously not seen the white elephant projects added over the last few years at the municipal level.

Argh! Yes the flies can be truly terrible and just stick to you. I remember having to wave my hands non-stop around my Dad when he was trying to eat a sandwich on a trip to the Eastern Goldfields in 2013 as the flies were like in your pictures. He had fairly advanced Parkinson's by then and it was too hard for him to eat and fend them off at the same time. I basically acted as a crazy windmill so that he could have a fly-free sandwich for lunch.

I went on an all-women fishing trip in the boundary waters of Minnesota, far north of my stomping grounds. That was the only time I encountered black flies. For those who don’t know them, they are very small with a bite bigger than you would expect. I was warned before traveling up to get 100% Deet.

All biting and bloodsucking insects adore me. I had on jeans, heavy socks, long-sleeved shirt and a jacket. I applied deet to my skin and my clothes. It kept them away for about 10 minutes. The worst of the attack was my ankles, where they were small enough to get through the weave of my socks. Really stung. They went after my face and hands, also. I never wanted to go back.

The other women applied deet and weren’t bothered. That’s because I was the candy.
If you don’t want bitten, invite me on your excursion. You’ll be insect-free.

My town's team Southend Utd have been relegated out of the Football League after 101 years of continuous top flight football. The fans aren't happy with the chairman's priorities and have held protests at the last two home games.
