Chasing the moon…

Camped out above Rufus, Oregon to try and capture a ‘super moon’ rising. Distant haze and the moon rising while it was not totally dark thwarted my settings and the usual scramble ensued. Such is nature.

Worm Moon…

appeared more like a Blood Moon as it ascended up through bands of clouds above the Cascade Mtns. just east of Portland, Oregon. Shot from atop Rocky Butte.

Dorothea Lange…

anyone admire her work as much as Shorpy and I do?

September 1939. “On the road with her family one month from South Dakota. Tulelake, Siskiyou County, Calif.” Photo by (one of my favorites) Dorothea Lange. Check out Shorpy’s for vintage photography.

finding self…

I believe that there is a subtle magnetism in Nature, which, if we unconsciously yield to it, will direct us aright. ~Henry David Thoreau

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.

Along came a spider…

“It’s spider season. Every year, right about now, thousands of the godless eight-legged bastards emerge from the bowels of hell (or the garden, whichever’s nearest) with the sole intention of tormenting humankind.” Charlie Brooker
