I don’t have a problem with people looking, we all do it including me. I see a beautiful woman walking down the street, I am going to look at her, I’m going to see what she’s wearing, I’m going to admire her shape. Not in a slack-jaw, drooling, spit running over my chin manner, as […]
Copyright is, at the best of times, a complicated subject fraught with problems for the layperson and pitfalls for both copyright owners and those who wish to use an image, an extract, an item for a specific purpose. In theory everyone knows that a photograph, taking just one example, is copyrighted, even if they do […]
The first thing I thought when I saw this photograph on Flickr’s Explored today was: I wish I had taken this.

So […]
Sound of cell phone ringing. Young woman: ‘Mom, could you get that? It’s probably just William saying he’s coming soon’ Photo Source: Garry Knight – Creative Commons Mom: ‘Well dear, it looks to me like William already came…’ Love & Kisses, Viki.
Back in March, as some may well remember, I complained that I felt Yahoo could be killing Flickr with their advertising policy, with slow connections and so on. I am one of those who enjoys going through Flickr, seeking out photographs, even using Creative Commons images from Flickr on this site. Slow is what I […]
I’m not so sure that it is a generational thing, more something everyone goes through at some time in their life, like playing in mud or eating worms. You stand in front of a mirror and pull a few faces, check your hair, turn and check your ass. Well, that is the way that it […]
