I am really distressed by the sad events of Japan, the tsunami and the 'radioactive cloud'hanging over it. My thoughts are with all those families who have lost loved ones and lost their homes and businesses. As photographers on Dreamstime we have to think how to illustrate these sad news stories without being able to fly to the scene of the disaster. Here is my take on the Japanese situation, first the tsunami, then a map showing Fukishima where the reactors have been out of control then an image... continue reading

As a newbie to Dreamstime and the whole stock photography milieu, I'm still awed by the new experiences I get myself into. I bet veteran photographers have been-here-done-this, but while I'm a novice learning the ropes, I'd like to chronicle my explorations. Down the road, when I've earned my stripes, I'll read my first blogs and say, yeah, I did that!What did I do this time?My husband took me to a Japanese restaurant for my last-day-of-my-birthmonth dinner. We ordered teppanyaki and a huge... continue reading
Last week I found I was rewarded with an extra $5. As I am a beginner on DT, I didn't know what it is for. So I asked my friend Xiye who introduced me to join DT, and received a link from him: https://www.dreamstime.com/news-photos.Oh, Great!!!This is my first photo picked up for the“news section”. It recorded the crowded Japanese people welcome new year in the temple on December 31 at midnight.In the begining of a new year, Japanese people gather to visit different shrines and pray... continue reading

Today I have another image that was upgraded to Level 2! Compared to the previous image that was also upgraded, this is actually one of my favorite images.It was taken during one of my backpack travels in Japan while I was there for a year. For this image, I passed by Tokyo from Osaka while on my way to a remote prefecture called Iwate. That day I stopped by Tokyo and decided to catch the sunset from a tall skyscraper that provided a breathtaking view of Tokyo city.I had the opportunity... continue reading
