  1. Hello, I was checking your nice site and I fell on one of my dearest photos of a priest friend wrongly attributed to Canva. I would highly appreciate if you give the right attribution either from Flickr or from Pixabay:

    Thank you and God bless!

    1. Thanks for letting me know Robert, that's now corrected. It looks like Canva are just taking photos from Pixabay, not providng new ones of their own. Which is a shame - I'll likely not use them again.

      Great photos by the way - I love the way you capture the essence of what is going on at the exact moment.
