Here are the pictures from my recent trip to Odessa.

I was crossing the equator in order to get next door…

I’m totally in love with winter Odessa. The little boy Kay from the famous fairy tale must have got exactly to this place when he was kidnapped but the Snow Queen.iceblog.jpgiceblog2.jpgiceseablog.jpgsnowseablog.jpgphotogpraherblog.jpgseagullsblog.jpgseagullstorm.jpg

Santorini pics, the sequel

these pics were rejected at stocks as belonging to an “overabundant” category. There can be too much beauty:)

But I still wanted to share, although they do look similar to what you’ve seen here:)santorini1.jpgsantorini2.jpgsantorini3.jpg

Portraits at stocks

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , — zalexandra @ 4:31 pm

Uploaded my first portraits for stocks. For me the main problem was the release. One is to fill that in, in order to prove the model is not against being taken on pictures used for commercial purposes. The release itself has no difficult questions, in fact, just some general info. To find the model if the picture was taken long ago, that is the quest.So uploading the portraits of myself I once took with a tripod seemed to be the easiest way out so far). I still had to fill in the release and it felt a bit weird to grant myself the right to sell the picture of myself. 🙂

Here is an example, others are here.

and by the way still am not sure what criteria they were using when putting me with the ape as “similar photos” :))))))))))

Photo-riddle

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , — zalexandra @ 1:14 am

Sometimes you can read a whole book for the sake of one phrase, sometimes you can meet a person for the sake of one thought.

One photographer told me once a very important and simple idea, which I think all photography can be based on.

He said- “every single thing around you wants to be in your pictures and wants to be special, there are times when even an old rusty nail wants to be beautiful”.

So, I’m putting here two photos of something quite banal. This can be around you or even in your office, but in any case, probably, you wouldn’t be happy seeing it.To make the riddle genuine I won’t tell the answer until… let’s say Monday 24th. Till that time you are free to make your guesses either here or just in your mind.Good luck!

Animals, the sequel

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , — zalexandra @ 3:56 am

I looked through my fotolia portfolio and found some more pictures to show

By the way if you ever want to upload your photos on fotolia make sure you thought twice at the names and keywords, ’cause they don’t allow you to change anything after uploading, unlike the two main stocks- shutterstock and istock
I would have called it “whoz zzer?” it wouldn’t be popular with the search machines though
