I recently had one of my photos show up on another blog without my knowledge. I wasn’t informed by the web site owner that he was going to use the photo. Not nice. I would have told him that yes he could use the photo but only after reducing the size and linking directly, via the photo, to the post where he saw the photo.
After complaining, via a comment, that it would have been nice if he had told me about his posting of my photo he has now removed the photo. That’s dumb too. I didn’t tell him to remove it but he did anyway. I guess that makes me the bad guy. Nothing new for me.
Here’s his comment on removing the photo:
Carlos Miller – Photography is Not a Crime just posted a new comment on Security Guard Forbids Photography in Front of Apple Store:
I removed the photo, no problem.
The reason I didn’t contact you was because I wanted to get the story up before going to bed that night.
Most photographers who get harassed are happy to let me use their photo as I tell their story.
But it’s not a big deal. Photo has been removed. Problem solved.
Me thinks his comment is very funny. He got the story posted before bed time but just didn’t have any more time that evening to send a quick e-mail to me. In fact he NEVER sent me anything that evening or any other evening.
