Jonathan, thanks for the insightfull blog report. As you say there is great hope still rising in SA but it is still tainted by those who exploit and use violence for their own gains.

Like you we had an organised trip (walking) through the township near Cape Town whose name sadly escapes me now. The organisors were a black company and it was residents that walked us through.

I took no camera to be frank because I did not wish to look like I was intruding even though the places we were taken 'were involved in the "look & learn"...' a couple of American ladies who were with us (total of 5 in the party) stuck their cameras into peoples faces without a thought

However, a different face of that township was in the news a few days later of a Dutch couple who drove their own car up to the area and were very quickly mugged & injured ~ just two faces of the same "story".

Looking forward to your futher reports and images.

Thanks Matt I was not sure if a white frame on a B+W print was to much white, but I will be getting some more of these frames the best bit is when you order them you only pay for one lot of delivery when you order more than one at at time.

Will said he didn't care at all that we were an online club and he was really keen to receive (individual) portfolios from any of us - and also to have more images sent from us as a club. So I was thinking (if you're all in agreement) of putting together a set of images from our Wisley meet (and the group shot too).

I am sure we can have something positive come from this. I am sure we're the only online club that entered the competition and that in itself makes us a story worth telling.
Go for it!

Hi Mark,

I am on the Google Chrome Business Development team. I received your contact details from Oleg at 500px.com.

First off, congrats! The Google Chrome team is a big fan of your photography. We would like to license some of your photographs to be used as wallpapers for Chromebooks. In addition, they may later be used in equivalent ways in Chrome or in promotional materials. The wallpapers would essentially just be the background image in many parts of the Chromebook UI, and users will be able to select the wallpaper they would like to use. Additionally, we may have options such as "Wallpaper of the Day" whereby the wallpaper changes each day.

The photographs that we would like to license are:



You can learn more about Chromebooks here: Introducing the Chromebook.

I would like to send you an agreement so we can license these photos. Do you have any questions before I send the agreement over?

Many thanks!
Sonia


well im very chuffed although it doesn't mention money so im not sure if they want me to give my photos to them for the honour of having them included (free) or do you think I should say something about payment or just go along with it all and just be happy that they want to use them as its a great way of getting my name out there, I think...

anyway I hope your all out today having fun taking some great pics, im going to wander round work and find something tech to photograph
Wow, very cool and very much deserved too.

I had the same thought about Chrome being open source but as its Google asking then maybe not, anyway I have sent them an email with some questions so I will wait and see what they come back with.
Very good news Mark. If this was for an animal charity or the like, I'd not mind donating but for a hard nosed, multi billion dollar enterprise? You would be mad not to charge. This link is relevant:

Mark ditto everyone elses sentiments, those photos are a combination of a lot of time and effort on your part, they are excellent photos coupled with your costs, time and equipment it would be criminal to give them away for free.

Notwithstanding if they offer you any money a huge compliment that they are after them.

Mark that is FANTASTIC - well done. I'd wait until the contract arrives and see what they're offering. don't give your pics away for nothing. they're way too good for that.
If you need an agent btw, I know a few.
best go and light my handwarmers, byeeeeeeeeeee.
Penel could you remind me which handwarmers you have again and hope you have thawed out

Nicely written and very informative, must have been a bit surreal to meet Hector Pietersen's sister

Brrrr. Afternoon all. Well, that was fun - soooooooo cold, although the sun did come out for a while.
I ran out of lighter fluid as I was filling the handwarmers so I only took one and it only lasted 3 hours. It's the Zippo ones Adrian.
Love the white frame but wondering if you need a pencil line drawn onto the mount. do you know what I mean? almost so it looks like a double mount - about 2cm away from the photograph ... it's blending a bit too much IMO.
