  2. Hi5 from Kaboompics 😉

  3. Great article Henri!

    I’m emailing you today to let you know that I started http://fancycrave.com/ a few months ago. The site consists of completely free stock photos all taken and edited by me. It’s basically a collection of images from my travels around South East Asia and South America (soon). My aim for these photos is to help designers and creative alike. People can use these images for whatever purpose they please.

    I do not make any income from the website. I keep things very simple. I list the photo, its tags, the author, and the download link.
