Sneaky forest trips

Today is my husband’s birthday. As we are lucky enough to live close to the New Forest, an obvious way to celebrate a summer birthday is to go for lunch at one of the many pleasing hostelries there, followed by a stroll in the sunshine, and finishing up with a cream tea to replace all that lost energy. Or, as was the case today, to do all this in cloudy weather. Regardless of the famous British weather though, the New Forest is a beautiful location for me to drop into from time to time... continue reading

Reflections in a short break

Hi everyone¡¡¡Most of my work Microstock performed from the free sessions. I like to experimentand turn those photographs that usually end up in a corner of any hard drive.I have the formation of surveyor and worked for more than 15 years in civil works ... how boring¡¡¡... It was all too grid and to very routine. I think Stock photography is too conditioned by income ... Most of the peoplewho decide to start uploading images to agencies expect immediate additional revenue and... continue reading

Short note about dragonflies

I never saw any dragonflies when I was a child. I am not actually sure, but there aren’t any interesting moments about them in my memory.I met them closely just several years ago. And became some kind of passive fan of this creatures. Every outdoor trip I hope to find and make videos of some new unusual species, that I’ve never saw before. To watch some new expressions and behaviors.And sometimes luck is on my side.Sometimes they look very scary. I think dragonfly is really perfect... continue reading

Local photography - short tip -

We all have the need to travel a brought to get the images that we need. We have the feeling that the exotic places to us are the images that are in demand. This can work against us. Looking at Dreamstime having clients all around the globe maybe many of us could be wrong with their thinking. Your city can be important for others as well.In recent Microstock meetings it came regularly up that there is an increasing demand for local authentic photos. Look at you city as a buyer.

Drabble: Doctor, doctor

The doctor examined my wound. He dug and probed, and I was glad when he stopped. One would think he was kneading dough. When he saw my ‘English Poetry from Chaucer to Rossetti’, he revealed a little of himself. Eyes alight, he quoted: ‘I remember, I remember, the house where I was borne’, then switched to the last couple of lines about being ‘further away from Heaven now that he is old enough to know the height of trees’. He is fond of Omar Khayyám and said that when he feels depressed... continue reading

Chairs

CHAIRSChairs! you cry, your voice raised excitedly and more then slightly teasing.Oh-my-god! A park bench! And it's blue!

Drabble: Meet The Family

Dan’s sister is blonde, but her brows and lashes are genetically dark. The children are refreshingly normal. Not too goody-good, just right, like Goldilocks’s third taste from the trio of bowls. I relax a little, tackling traditional roast rib of beef, veg, Yorkshire pudding, horseradish sauce and all the trimmings.‘Chloe’s as thin as a pin,’ says Elizabeth, offering seconds.I want to decline, leave room for the dessert that cutlery informs is on the menu, but I take another bloody,... continue reading
