I haven't written a blog or contributed many images for ages. Due to my daughter getting married, (I'm banned from putting images on line!!) and mainly, moving house.

My sales have almost stopped, but I have just over 1000 images online ... It is the fault of the crisis? or maybe my portfolio is very poor? Should I start a little to reflect. I think DT is a good place to put your pictures online, my photos are viewed, but despite purchases are very low, almost non-existent.I continue to send photos in the hope that it will be accepted and increase my visibility but I see that there is nothing ... and it must be the economic crisis!!!Maybe I have to start changing... continue reading
