While walking on the City Wall of Xi'an I noticed that there were quite a few groups doing communal activities. Such as gymnastic exercises as you can see above. However, playing music and singing is also very popular. In the evening, on the squares of Xi'an, you will find a large number of groups dancing. I have been told that to join a group you have to come every evening. And each group comes early to make sure that have a nice spot on the square. It was shame that it was too dark... continue reading

What I glance at when meeting any person first time are his or her hands. I know that the eyes are the windows to the soul and I look at people faces, indeed. But people could wear glasses and their real feelings could be hidden by mimic masks or make-up whereas people hands are usually truthful and expressive. Hands can tell you how the person is old in reality, what he/she is doing for living, how much the person is affective, what activity type he/she prefers and many, many other things. This is... continue reading
As many people, I have been skeptical of the mirrorlesscamera, but now I had to think again on this issue.But because today those who work in microstock photography should buy a mirrorless? Many photographers have told me that the best camera is the one you have at the time you need to take a picture. And mirrorless cameras have a huge advantage: they are small, light and compact. This means that the camera kit (a camera body, two or three lenses, memory cards and a mini-... continue reading
So it’s the beginning of April and I am still waiting for the spring. The weather in internet promises that spring comes next week.I can’t wait to see the green grass, the little leaves and the buds in the trees, the sun and some blue sky, the smelling of spring.I can’t wait to begin the spring activities:-Walking in the park with my family-Photo shooting outdoor-Fishing-Hiking in the mountains-Jogging in the... continue reading
I must share this thought of the day. A follow-up on a previous blog; I'm still heart broken after my man of 9 years pulled the rug out from under me, and ran away scared. He left me in an apartment I couldn't afford, in a city that can only be compared to the "the pits of hell". During the months of heart ache, going up and down in a continual cycle with him returning AGAIN then leaving AGAIN, my mind and heart was only focused on him. I hadn't uploaded anything or even picked up my camera for 7months.... continue reading
Several sectors of economic activity have been affected worldwide, a lots of cuts in jobs and spending.I wonder till what level,that is affecting photographic production .Specifically microstock contributors , artists (namely), Dreamstime contributors .And f some of you have changed ways and “methods” of shooting ; for example someone who used to take pictures outdoors changing to studio work ..in a way to make a better profit ( saving costs ) .How do you think is the present... continue reading
I took a couple months off from uploading on Dreamstime to prepare for my Russia expedition (5 years in Russia).I also took a break from the message boards on DT.I noticed that my sales dropped by half; most interestingly, my sales of Bald Eagles stopped.My images of pets also died.When you do a search for Bald Eagle on Dreamstime, you get hundreds of pages of Eagle images.Obviously, if you are not among the first 10-20 pages of images, your chance of a sale is less.Once I became... continue reading
I am not a professional photographer. Unfortunately Israel isn't very hospitable to those who wish to make a living out of photography (or perhaps I wasn't cut out of the same material that great tough photographers are made of...). So what can one do? how can you combine a practical career and the joy of photography?At first look, it seems impossible, since photography demands time and attention. there is a vast investment in truly great photos.In my previous post I spoke about simplicity.... continue reading
