Don't have a link but had a call this afternoon inviting me to attend the Motorcycle Hall of Fame Induction Ceremonies in Las Vegas in November.  Some of my vintage motocross images will be on display there.  Pretty exciting day.   8)

Nice that someone revived the thread for other reasons, or I would have missed it.

Historical photography is what I always enjoyed. I should have just walked down the street and shot life in general for 20 years. Ah, but after the fact, and too old, it's too late.

So I say, great that you shot some old smoking, crappy, out of business, grease blowing machines. Without people like you, we'd only have blowhards talking, and no pictures to prove what really happened!  :D

Surprising that people care more about receptionist answering the phone, business handshake, slice vegetables, and "stuff you find about the house" isolated on white. When the real meat isn't as marketable or profitable, but it's historical photography of the simple things in life.

Remember that intersection down the street, now it's a strip mall, glass sided travel agency, and quick mart gas station, it used to be an old grocery store on one corner, machine shop on the other and old "service station" with some interesting gas pumps.

Here's my messages for all of us. When you are bored or not shooting perfectly bland Microstock. Go out for a walk and shoot the community around you. Save it on a CD and place it somewhere for the future. Businesses, people, the shopping area, old buildings, which will disappear in 20 years or next year, in some cases. Just record life, for the future.

Nice going Warren, you did it!

Wanna know what my brain looks like....go herehttp://www.atelier-us.com/page/15 It's on the story of "No evidence that Web is bad for brains". Wonder if they had a doctor check for the defect in that MRI?????lol

 I think the pages change so I don't know how long it will be there.

Found a couple more http://www.momaroo.com/722015211/parenting-via-blogs-and-facebook/
It's the picture of the little red headed girl blowing her nose on the right side of the screen.

Then there is this one http://au.lifestyle.yahoo.com/b/home-beautiful/category/competitions?xoffset=11
It's the little girl playing with the water hose....ironically it's an ad for an Australian photography competition.

I actually found one of mine in use today.  http://www.futuretimeline.net/subject/biology-medicine.htm It's the diagram of the human ear.  Sold at DT and it only sold once there.

Now if I could just figure out where my vector brain and heart are at LOL (and no definitely not in my vector body ;)

Are we allowed to blow our own horns here? Here's one of mine spotted by the (free) model on the front page of Yahoo. It's the chef eating soup.

Just recently I started using Google Alerts and it has just pointed me to one of my images, thanks to the blog author creditting me and FT:

Found on a Google search. The jeans pocket in one of the options here:

First I thought this might have been the EL this image once got, but it was from FT and not BigStock credited here, and I learnt that this is ok with the regular license (unless the image itself can be downloaded - it doesn't seem so).

I have been busy the last weeks moving not only from home but also from province (state) here in Spain. Now im already in a new house and city, last week we went to the cinema with our son and wat was my surprise when i saw an image of mine in the poster of movie!!!
It felt like a great welcome sign to the new city.

Here my original image

@ Arquiplay - what a wonderful story!  Thanks for sharing that.  I would definitely take that as some sort of confirmation that you're supposed to be there now.  I feel so happy for you.

The images look so poor that I wonder if they are real sales or upsized thumbnails.

This find is truly special to me.  The old dude in the red shirt is my dad finishing up an 8 mile leg of a relay that took him up an 8% grade above Lake Tahoe for 6 of the 8 miles.  What's so special about it is he was a plant pathologist at the University of California-Berkeley for over 30 years, and here he is featured on the cover University of California "California Agriculture" magazine, which he used to read back in the day.   ;D  It's PERFECT!!!  The photo editors had no idea who he was...just found it on the micros like everyone else.  LOL  Dad will turn 79 in a few weeks.

Oops for the 2nd time today.   :P

Oh wow, that's a great story!    Did he pick up a few copies for the relatives?

My brother in law is a principal and he's in some of my classroom photos with his kids - they keep popping up all over his school division and in different newspapers and they gets so many "Is that you" calls.  (I wonder if he'd pose again or if he is sorry he did the first time!).  They went to a basketball tournament at a rival school and there is his daughter out in a wheat field on a huge spirit poster and she was on a billboard by the football stadium.  One day at University some boys were pointing at her and laughing and when she was on the way home she read the school newspaper, and there she was on a full page ad for some potash mine.  I NEVER find these photos in use, but that family keeps running into themselves everywhere!

Sounds like whenever my daughter receives her copy of Guide Dog News from Guide Dogs for the Blind.  The past two issues both had photos of her feet and white cane.  LOL

Missed it the first time!

The picture of your Dad is perfect, not just the shot but the whole connection.

Now I need someone to buy the picture of Mom making ravioli and put it on some Italian cooking magazine. That would be the real frosting on the Micro Cake.

That was fun.  Just found one of my pics here:


And another here:


That garden image was rejected by SS and BS and stockfresh as non-marketable/not interested in the subject - it never ceases to amaze me what one stock house thinks is great and another won't touch.

Found one of mine on music a couple weeks ago!


« Reply #323 on: March 26, 2011, 02:34 »
I'm still disappointed.

When I search I find Shutterstock, Bigstock, 3dStudio and my sites and not one use of any of my images.

My best selling image across SS, and IS... never once have I found it in use and it's a virtually impossible to reproduce image. Unique! And I can't find it in use once after almost two years of sales? Dang!

Just once I want to look on a website or some ad someplace and see one of my images. This includes the Alamy sales as well, which are pretty singular.

Yes, magazines, newspapers and websites that I have sold images. I know where they went, it's no mystery. I'm saying, not one MicroStock image found ever!

Have you ever searched using your name or nickname and site name? It works sometimes when a site gives credit to the photographers (some do, even if not needed).

Added: for example, i searched for my name and Fotolia, and got this page:
And the link to my image shows they are using my buttons.
