I also had a calendar sale today - autumn on the Basingstoke Canal.

Mine were a couple of Stately Homes and a well known local garden.

Today is acting like a last day of the month, with three sales so far spaced out across the day. Hopefully that will continue.

Just passed my 2017 $$ total, so that's a positive result for me, though I've added >25% to my port in the past 12 months. Still, hopefully they'll bear fruit in the future.

About a week ago, when I looked at Alamy Measures (Your Images) of the previous day,

it showed that one keyword search resulted in 4 images displayed and one was zoomed.

In itself, it is nothing extraordinary about it.  

 

However those 4 images were all mine. Yes! Out of 155 million images! It made me smile and happy for the morning. 

The icing on the cake was, a few days later, the image was reported sold for $60 (not distribution).

I was chuffed.  :)

I've just had a second sale reported this evening. Not a huge amount, but it reminds me why I do this, after the slap in the face today from Alamy.

A couple of sales yesterday took me to a new high regarding annual sales quantity. This exceeded last years 'record'. Income is another subject!!

Two $100 + sales dropped in yesterday.  Good news in the midst of the gut punch news from Alamy yesterday.

I've finally finished reading all the posts in the 'commission changes' threads, (I expect a higher % as compensation for effort and time expended).

 

Too exhausted to actually post anything, though and long ago emptied my quiver (arrows). 

 

Off to solve Brexit now. Expect world peace imminently.

Quite ironic really that with such bad news I've started off this month with 5 sales over the 7 days. Bitter sweet.

Yes, six in seven days here. Most consistent start to a month for a long time

Would you say this may be deliberate? I have a suspicious mind.

I'm not sure how that would work bearing in mind customers need to buy the images

They're the inspiring words I've been wanting to read all along.

A doff of the cap to yer.

Same here. 4 sales, including one for $250, which is the highest value sale I have made on Alamy. Glad to get that one in while still in the 50% zone!

As I type, I'm getting a fancy new telephone pole installed in the back lane with all the new technology. In the next week or two, my internet provider will be upgrading my connection to fibre optics.

So now I can lose money in stock photography even faster! Pretty cool, eh?

Another $$$ direct sale was invoiced today. That's three in a row. I had to pinch myself to make sure I wasn't dreaming.
