Dear Madame

I am writing on behalf of Polish travel agency – StayPoland
Sp. z o.o. We are an incoming travel agency to Poland and
operate a very popular travel portal at:

We are now expanding outside Poland and would like to offer
similar services in over 30 cities in Europe. Currently we
are working on our website to make it
more attractive for our customers and people interested in
our services. We are now working on new design and look of
the website. The effects of our work you can see at

We found your photos at and like them very
much. In fact, we would like to use them in the new version
of our website. The Policy at requires us to
ask the author whether we can publish the picture and that
is why we are writing.

Should you allow us to publish your pictures of Gaudi
Furniture at, we will be happy to put
your name along with all your contact details in a special
section of the website, which will be easily accessible
from the page with your pictures.

Kindly, please, let us know if you agree on using your
pictures on our website.

We are looking forward to hearing from you.

Best regards

Milosz Belter

Casa Batlló, by Gaudí
Casa Batlló

I went to Spain in 2004, but my photoset doesn’t really have much Gaudi in it, not even for architecture. I love Gaudi’s work, but I spent more time gazing than shooting. I think there are only three photos of furniture uploaded and they aren’t my favourites, but I don’t mind sharing them with this Polish company.

Thing is, if people want the photos I call snapshots for commercial use, then it’s time to start taking better photos that I can be proud of in the public domain!
