Success: IStock Accepted Beach Textures

This photograph of an expired (freshly dead) Speckled Swimming Crab washed up by the surf onto Cocoa Beach one January morning is now available on Getty IStock for your creative usages.

Click the photograph, below, to visit the listing.Speckled Swimming Cram, dead – CLICK ME for the IStock Listing.

It is one of the thirteen (13) images accepted in set with the theme “Beach Textures.” During our winter visits to Florida our routine is to rise in the pre-dawn darkness, enjoy the emerging sun, different every day. Then, I take off for a beach walk in the dawn, early morning light.

The view of the first photograph is frontal including eye stalks and antennae above the mouth. The main body, called cephalothorax, is speckled. The mouth is the large opening in the center of the leading edge of cephalothorax. To the right and left are the arms with pincers. Scientific Name: Arenaeus cribarius.

This view from the rear is also available. Click the photograph to view listing.Speckled Swimming Cram, dead – CLICK ME for the IStock Listing.

It is a rear view of the walking legs extended from the cephalothorax.

This gull feather, below, was the inspiration for the series. You might remember my posting of the feather as “Beach Dreams” back in January, shortly after I captured the image.

Success: IStock accepted Saint Patrick

Several readers have asked for an update on my Saint Patrick photograph, the statue of Saint Patrick at Tara.

In my post “Saint Patrick’s Return to the Hill of Tara” I described the research undertaken, after the photograph was sent back from IStock for revisions because there were questions of copyright and the authorship of the statue.  Click the above link for complete details of the messages sent from IStock, my research and how it was applied to the IStock submission.  Briefly, the research demonstrated the sculptor is anonymous.

Last week, I received word the photograph was published on IStock.  Click this link to view the photograph on IStock. I can only assume my research and they way I presented the response was acceptable.  Part of my response were revisions to the photograph description.  If you click on the IStock link, you might need to scroll down to view my description at the very bottom.

Thank You for your interest.
