Till today, while reading blogs about 5,6,7...etc downloads at once, I felt.....mmmmm... a little bit envious, wondering "Does it really happen?!" I was sure that such nice surprises are not for me. Till today the best selling day brought me 3 sales and I remember I was as happy as a child, getting candy!Just a little over 2 years ago I started my portfolio at DT with the photos from Jaffa-Tel Aviv port.Today my Perfect Day arrived: 8 of them - all night views - were downloaded!

2 years with Dreamstime

Hello, guys!In fact, these 2 years were very interesting, teaching and ...quick! I would say, I have learnt a lot. I made a decision at the early stage tp become an exclusive contributor. Sometimes I doubt if it was right, but meanwhile I stay with this.Photography is exclusively a kind of half-professional hobby, left for free time. I must admit in the crazy modern world I don't have much of it. But, having a great partner, as my husband, we spend all of our vacations travelling, mostly in... continue reading

Falling in Love with Youuuu.....

After 20 years I must confess: I do LOVE this City. I have been here 5 times. It happened once in every 4 years...just by chance. I have already started joking: As if to Olympic Games:) There has been said and written so much about this City, that I can hardly add something new: The City of Light, A Moveable Feast - I suppose for everyone, who likes is it's something special. For me it's a place where I always want to return and I never have enough of it - no matter for how long I remain there. Give... continue reading

Unique Tranquility

Sometimes each of us needs a place to escape... Just to stay in peace and tranquility, with as less people and noise around as possible.Some choose challenging tracking in the mountains Others - kayak in a powerful river current... There are those, for whom there is nothing like a small house lost somewhere in the forest... Let me draw your attention to another kind of paradise of peace and tranquility - the world famous corner on the Earth, called the Dead Sea. Here you can... continue reading

Footage - to...do or not to do?

My dearest friends! I felt a "victim" in a newly born stream of video at DT. Footage is fun... It's nice looking for some scenes to capture, but... I ask myself if there are chances it can be as popular as stills? Should I dedicate my time to it, taking it from photos?... Just because it's not my main occupation - rather a serious hobby. What do you think about footage - to do or not to do?... continue reading
