and from the same location a few months prior. I shot this one blindly at
iso1600 through a tiny hole in the bottom of the door.

My favourite family photo The man said I'd never get the dog to do it - look at that canine acting Had to cover her with a blanket in PS to get the Vetta but this is my favourite.
Some more of my favourite people, great acting again, and shot at a fantastic meet-up with istock friends
Another meet-up with istock friends and wild models produced this one
ETA to put the links back in - thanks for the heads-up!

This was my most unexpected success image for the year. I have an entire series of WWII military senerios that I set up and shot. They have all done quite well in the sales department. But, I chose this one to represent the series because by and large the downloads were in the Large to Extra Large range which brough in some nice $$. The other images in the series might have made more and were more attractive, but this one seemed to be the big marketing companies choice to use.
This next image was one of my personal favorites just because it brings out the playful spirit in everyone who views it. Maybe even making us think of our early Peter Pan and Wendy Childhood days.
And here is another one exploring the yesteryear in our lives by living it through this recreation of Alfalfa Blasting Off To The Moon.
Just three of many favorites that I uploaded this year. It was hard to choose.

"The North Wind Doth Blow and We Shall Have Snow". One of a series of beautiful Pre-Raphaelite illustrations by Walter Crane which I have just had accepted.
Two street entertainers doing a levitation trick on the South Bank of the River Thames, London, during the summer - it gained me an initial rating but has had no downloads.
