Outlook clearing

Well, no sooner had I declared a bad case of the Mugwumps than something happened to cheer me up!

Three times now I have been contacted by Flickr viewers wishing to use one of my images. The third request just arrived.

In the past I have been asked for permission to use a photograph of an old headstone in the graveyard at Wanlockhead and  one of a flock of Soay Sheep in Glenlivet.
Memnto Mori

Both were requests from Scandinavian museums. How remarkable is that? Although the same headstone was also requested by About.com…

So, believe it or not, today I have been asked for this image…
Old Pane

… by a third Scandinavian museum! I mean, what are the odds?

I am pleased to agree to this request – this is one of my favourite photographs and I have always loved it, though few folk appear to appreciate it as much as I.

It is going into a brochure for  Fredriksdal Gardens & Museums in Helsingborg, Sweden, in a six image spread. With a credit.

Of course not one of these requests carried any offer of payment.  Maybe one day… one day, I’ll sell an image.

All the same, I’m chuffed.

It is also very nice to be reminded of this picture and to see it again. I took it in 2005, I think, in the garden at Skylight Cottage just after we moved in. Possibly the actual day that we moved in or the one after, if I remember correctly.

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

I am lagging on the Month in the Country prompts, and lagging badly at that. I have a list of prompts t be caught up on and I shall be working my way through them here, or at Scattered Thoughts depending on where the post most naturally sits. I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost

Oh, deer

Nell and I had a lovely walk this morning. The weather has cooled considerably and there was a very pleasant breeze. We both made better time than of late. … Continue readingOh, deer
