Woke up to find a $250 book sale. I thought they went extinct.

I checked my phone this morning bleary eyed to see a near $100 sale fall in, had to double check on the computer with a cup of coffee. National non UK newspaper for 1 day which I will be keeping an eye out for.

 

I only uploaded the image a few weeks ago but it's probably the only one I can find on Alamy of it.

 

I will say this, processing photos certainly leads you round the Internet researching places/buildings/animals/birds but it's worth it for the tags and captions.

Since joining Alamy a couple of years ago, my use of both Wikipedia and Google Maps has increased considerably!

Yes, I always seem to have a few wikipedia tabs open but I find it interesting researching and it usually leads to something else, either by related links or the 10w light bulb in my head turns on to photograph something I hadn't thought of.

I've thought for a moment about posting this as I don't want to jinx it, but I've just had a sale drop in for $1464.15. I'm dumbfounded, speechless, shocked and stunned. :o

Wow, well done. Can I ask what kind of sale that was as I didn't realise it was still possible to achieve such?

That's wonderful. Thanks for letting us know. I had one for $1000 and it sure made me happy.

You do if you download the sales report.

Super well done! I never had one approaching that sum. Nowhere near.

Two book sales came in yesterday for $62.57 each of details of Victoria Railway station. It's often stated that zooms aren't a good indication of sales, but these were zoomed some time ago which I find is quite common for book sales. I don't think I've had any book sales that weren't zoomed so if you're getting zooms then that's my offering for thinking positive

Brilliant, I've had 3 over $1000 dollars in the past and it's a brilliant feeling, well done!  Sadly just checked my sales and last one is $8!!

Well done up there! That's something to put a smile on a lot of faces. The sun has just come out down here in Norfolk, so I'm going out to sit in it and I'll still be smiling!!

Sultanpepa, that's awesome news! I had a $1,600 sale in January and the first thing I did was send an email to Alamy making sure it was real :D Then I held my breath for weeks until it cleared, certain every day that I would see a refund come through (it cleared, yay!)  So glad to hear about these large sales and to know that others are getting them occasionally as well. Congratulations!

Looks like a billboard use. I'll need to keep an eye out for it. :)

'Last-working-day-of-the-month-invoice-catch-up' has begun early today with five sales so far appearing during the day so far, as a three, then a single and another just now. Ranging from a genuine looking PU to $32. Nothing to retire on, but it all helps
