Getting downloads is only the icing... (no pun intended)

Well, I have been rather lazy as far as writing another blog these few weeks. The winter is over and I am spending less time indoors

Naturally, all the extra fresh air, sunshine and activity can be taxing on oneself. The winds are still a bit gusty here, as the Atlantic winds are furious even during the summer. So cold sores are rampant,

and yes, got my first and nastiest ever ,,, arghhh! hate those bleeding things (arghhh, bad pun)..

Still, I was feeling like I had not only ignored my blog friends

but also neglected my uploading, since my mind has been more on eating, drinking and getting merry. lol.

It surely wasn't due to lack of downloads or lack of motivation, as usually the more downloads I get, the more motivated I am.

And like many of you here, last month was quite a good month for me .

Even started this month with one big surprise of 5 downloads of 5 different images from my Tunisia travel collection. Most likely from the same wonderful buyer (THANK YOU VERY MUCH, SHUKRAN, WHO EVER YOU ARE)..

and that is something I am not used to. 5 downloads at once.

So, obviously, this is something to celebrate , as you all know, for me, my travel shots are my best sellers , or at least, the ones I wish would keep selling, so I can get more payouts to buy me a return ticket to Tunisia to shoot more and better images for Dreamstime.

Anyway, I thought I include some latest approved images

(and one very old and almost forgotten )...

from the most appropriate topics for this moment, ie. eat drink and be merry.

That's just another thing I enjoy most about shooting for stock.

I love shooting food , as once you finish shooting, you can eat the still life and drink the whole thing .

I especially love shooting drinks, although this is actually the first time I shoot drinks as a single object. Usually, I don't even reach that stage to pick up a camera, as by the time I feel like shooting a drink setting, my bottle is already empty, lol.

But this time, I resisted the urge to open the bottle, or to empty the glass into my mouth, ...




please please please.. be a kind soul to download some or all of these images,

I need to get more wine and food hee!hee!

cheers ! Santé !

UPDATED wed may 05 with extra self portrait just approved .

I agree - those photos are for becoming hungry and having a taste for a toast with a good wine :-) I wish you to sell as many times as you can organize some pretty good "tasting party" with such meal:-)

Studioportosabbia , the food yes I did. But the pastries, no , not yet ! I wished I could bake too, but learning to cook is already an amazing achievement to me. I used to make my own beer too, but that was a long time ago, when I used to exchange my homebrew with my Italian neighbours who made their own wine. But not anymore, I moved :(
