More Flickr Photos Found in the Wild

April 29, 2008

I’ve said it before: I love seeing people use my Flickr photos in their blog posts. The latest examples include Geoff Livingston celebrating the two-year anniversary of his blog by using this geese-on-the-Columbia-River photo:

Some more from recent weeks:

  • A blogger named Ann used a photo of the local middle school track on the what to do, poopsy-woo? blog.
  • Charles Spurgeon used one of my favorite photos — Cannon Beach, Oregon — on his Daily Spurgeon blog.
  • And a couple weeks before that, the same Charles used my photo of gorgeous clouds over the Columbia River on Daily Spurgeon.

Always cool to see people using my photos and sharing the link love back to my Flickr photostream.

    Do people ask you for permission or do they just use it and you find it later?

    @Phil R: I think I have my photos set to “okay to use as long as you credit me with a link”, so people just grab and use what they want. I subscribe to RSS feeds of Google, Google Blog Search, Technorati, and one or two other searches for my name. It’s nice to know whenever someone talks about you. 🙂

    Hi there. I’m Sarah (I’m actually the picture poster in Poopsy-woo). Thanks for the shot! I love Flickr Creative Commons. Thanks for sharing your work.
