time to tidy up…

The cushions are stowed, many leaves still remain on the trees…time to stow the outdoor furniture until late Spring.

Hong Kong Piracy & Abuse? I think so…

Since 2008, I have posted about 7,000 times. I have presented many thousands of my photos for other’s enjoyment. I now see that many of my photos have been used by phishing/spam sites with catchy outdoor site names like Year of Clea Water and many more…all sites when clicked on take you into a rabbit hole of problems.

Others have remarked about noticing a sudden, inordinate amount of visits from Hong Kong. I have had almost 60,000 such visits. No doubt in my mind of the link to the Hong Kong visits and the abuse of my images. Of course, I don’t have any images copyrighted….so I understand the realities. Imitation is the best form of flattery…this is more nefarious that imitation. I have known of many of my photos ‘borrowed’ by businesses/sites with my ‘SwittersB’ lopped off. I let it go. I know of people selling my images. I see them on Alamy and other stock photo sites. Those are varying degrees of selfishness but the phishing/spam efforts are abusive to others an my photos attached to those sites if disheartening.

Solitude at dusk…

“I hold this to be the highest task of a bond between two people: that each should stand guard over the solitude of the other.” Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

Life and the past…

The older I get, the swirl of life, birth, pain, illness, death, new life…and and on…challenges one. One can try to sort out all the meanings, the positives and negatives. One can find spiritual solace or take a more pragmatic view. In the end, it is all flying by, for real, and little quaint truisms and positive self talk bounces off the mental walls. Celebrating or grieving in the moment, day after day, gets one by. Realities loom…the beautiful and the profound. No, I’m not drunk…just thinking, feeling……

One of my favorite cemeteries to visit…always different given infrequent maintenance. Cemeteries provoke many thoughts in me as I review the markers.
