Thank you! I'm a fan of Lowry. Don't readily recognize the Lowry in myself though.

However...

Just found out where the image (most probably) has been used:

illustrating a funny traveller letter about "miracle cures" on international flights.  This is the complete letter:

 

MIRACLES AT 30,000 FEET

Has anyone else experienced "miracle cures" on international flights?

I have witnessed this several times on long-haul sectors where an apparently disabled person in a wheelchair obtains priority boarding but on arrival walks off the plane unassisted. First to board, but not last to leave.

Why fly to Lourdes when the flight itself has miraculous healing properties?

Great image Wim!   And when I checked out that web page where it is found, there was another letter with a super restaurant recommendation for here in Vancouver.  Bonus!

Thank you! The interwebs are still full of surprises!

Just checked that image. I have been to Chicago O'Hare a couple of times but only had 3 opportunities to take pictures. This one has sold 5 times (av 13.39) fortunately it's total is just 4.210606127619782 % of the total of my O'Hare images. They have been nicked thousands of times over the years and litter the web. At one point there were 3500 on tumblr alone within one week. This one not so much; only a couple have escaped into the wild.

This IQ sale just popped in. RM, yet a licence for unlimited use for unlimited time. Not even the usual 5 years. So in other words, it's really an RF sale despite my choice of RM.

Doesn't really seem right, nothing you can do about that?  Makes me unsure whether I want to upload images if someone can buy them with that sort of licence.

There is hope for my picture of a dead pigeon in Venice then - which hasn't sold yet. ;-)

Very nice, I've had a few searches for the Latin name of the Black Rhino turn up, guess you were the lucky one!

I guess so. My measures showed three sessions for a total of about three thousand views! And, I think, 48 zooms. I don't usually know if a zoom has translated to a sale but this one did. Maybe it was the copy space. It was a commercial use.

Great, Paulette!    Maybe for a skin cream. :D

Actually, I just added an image that shows the skin pretty well....

So the product would have to come with one of these little birds to eat the bugs.

Some coral showing a bleached area.  Sadly, though, a RM image sold with an "unlimited" duration.

RM sold as RF :mellow:

I don't understand how a RM photo uploaded to Alamy can be licensed as RF. What is the point in contributors deciding how they want their photos to be sold if it can be changed? As the definition of RM in my limited understanding is a one time license, how can this be unlimited? Has Alamy provided any explanation of this to anyone?

Sally,

 

It's a bit frustrating for sure but it's Alamy "Ball & Bat" so they get to set the rules.

 

Overall I have been very happy with Alamy
