OK….so I am very aware that this is a pretty popular picture on the web. In fact, when I heard this was circulating on Tumblr, that is when I decided to join the site. But I just want to make this clear that THIS IS MY PHOTO. It upsets me that someone took this from my myspace page long ago without my permission, and now it is a popular photo on the web, but NO ONE KNOWS WHO TOOK IT. There is no credit being given to the author, ME. Nor has anyone asked my permission for its continued use on the web. Now, I understand the risks when posting things on the web. Obviously there is nothing I can do about it. I just wish I got the proper credit I deserve for this image. This photo was taken before I started going to school for photography, and before I learned how to copyright, and watermark my photos. Lesson learned.
But I am super stoked that this photo has been very well received. So I can’t complain too much.
click the photo to ink to my facebook page. And if you have blogged this photo in the past, or plan to in the future, maybe you should credit the author.
