A Sale !

A thrill today to receive an email from the Chief Officer of Sending You Good News,

the lovely Mr. Baxter

A great big thank you to the most discerning person who purchased this Samsung

Galaxy Case. I hope it gives you much pleasure and many years of service.

Here we go again …

Just as I have almost reached the end of my portfolio (AGAIN) updating my Artist Notes from Available as to Available products to make sense with the words above … it seems a reversion has taken place … back to Available as … why …

Along with the reversion it appears we have also completely lost all comments and responses past the first 10 … again!!

However, separation of paragraphs on the Artist Notes page is far preferable to the squashed up previous appearance without paragraph spacing.

And removal of the extra links to generic works from the top left side is also appreciated, as well as the removal of “reviews” irrelevant to the specific work.

The available products page is great!

It seemed to make sense to me anyway to separate Artist Notes and Comments … and the connections were wel…

Puzzled & Frustrated by Corrupted Images

Am I the only person who is experiencing corruption of files???

A few months ago, I noticed an image loaded in landscape orientation and added to my description as a card, no longer appeared as a landscape image, but recently had somehow been altered to appear cropped to square on a white rectangle background … not something I found appealing … so I rectified the problem, thinking it was a one off “glitch”.

Some weeks later I came across a similar problem and again rectified it.

Thank you to special people.

While I was away, a highlight of my trip was a wonderful half day spent with Tom Gomez in Edinburgh. As we walked up and down the steps and hills of this wonderful city, Tom amazed me with his encyclopaedic knowledge of the city, it’s history and the history of individual buildings and the people who had once lived in them.

From the Scott Monument to Edinburgh Castle, down the Royal Mile to Holyroodhouse Palace and the quaint Queen Mary’s Bath House, including along the way various places such as Mary King’s Close, The Last Drop, Greyfriars Bobby of course and many more, pausing for a shot with the statue of (a friend of Robbie Burns), poet Robert Fergusson, who died very young after falling down a flight of stairs.

Then we tackled the slopes of Calton Hill, through ano…

Half a Million Views

Over the past couple of months while I was unable to spend more than a few minutes looking at a computer screen, the milestone came and went. My current 611 images have received a total of 514,261 views to date, averaging over 840 each.

A big thank you to everyone who has contributed to that milestone … a point I never envisaged when I joined Redbubble almost five years ago.

The time has come however to take a critical look at my portfolio and remove a number of images I am no longer satisfied with for various reasons.

I have attempted over the past couple of weeks to respond to recent comments on my images … if I have missed anyone, I apologise.

400,000 views !

I joined Redbubble and posted my first image in April 2009.

In November 2011, I was thrilled to reach 100,000 views.

July 2012 saw my view counter top 200,000 views.

In March 2013 the view counter slipped over the 300,000 view threshold.

While I slept, the view counter topped 400,000 !

In the past six months I have added a further 35 images to reach a total of 600. On average those 600 images have each reached 666.92 views. In fact, the views of individual images varies from 31 for my most recent to one at 6,954.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the many people who have contributed to these figures. Thank you one and all !

I tell myself I will stop counting when I reach half a million . . . . .

A Glimpse of d'Alt Vila, Ibiza

I love visiting ancient places that I learned about so many years ago at school . . .
as well as discovering places I had not known about.
d’Alt Vila with history dating back some 2,500 years is one of the places I have only
recently read about and I was not disappointed by my visit.

d’Alt Vila, Ibiza is a UNESCO World Heritage site.

From our ship berthed on the other side of Ibiza Island we traveled by bus to a gate
at an upper level of the fortified town which rises a considerable height above sea
level. (in spite of considerable research, I have not yet been able to discover just how
high it is)


Entering d’Alt Vila, Ibiza at an upper level gate.

Once inside the gate we continued up to the top of the fortified town for amazing
panoramic views all around.

Lest We Forget

A tribute to all who have served their countries, as well as their families, particularly Australia on this Anzac Day 2013.

Although this photograph was taken in an earlier year, I visited Anzac Memorial, Hyde Park, Sydney
on Anzac Day 2012, a moving experience among the crowds of young, old and every age in between.

The best known, often repeated verse of Robert Laurence Binyon’s poem …

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
