Unfortunately, there are those who would take a photo off another's site, and either pass it off as their own, or print or otherwise use the image. Some print the photos off for their own use, other may use the shots as screen savers, etc., without paying me for my hard work! Yikes, my huge fortune in photography lay in peril until I vandalized my images with my web address in the name of greater security. Thousands of scoundrels in the European art-thief community are commiserating with each other over cappuccinos and long cafe drinks at charming outdoor cafes, wondering where they'll get such quality images for free now. Ah, well.
I'm also adding more commentary to my images, for two reasons. One, some of the images are cool to look at, but the casual browser might wonder what the hell they're looking at, for example, the macro shot of the interior of a Cereus bloom, fluoresced with ultra violet light. And two, I figure if I write out commentary, then with no one reading, I'm doing twice as much work to be ignored!
Future plans this weekend include me trying a hike up a local mountain to see if I can get some half ways decent sunset photos.
Hope to post some shots if I manage to haul my middle-aged carcass up a mountain. I'll pack the sub-lingual nitro pills for my heart and stumble back with uninteresting photos, or I'll die alone on the mountainside, and feed the local coyotes through the lean months of winter. Either way, should make for some interesting shots.
