Due to my being hounded by image licensing companies for pictures I used back in 2008, demanding compensation in the $100's, I am pulling down all my old posts. The first time it happened, I thought it was random, a fluke. A picture from a NYT's article about color trends. With credit and a link back, I might add. But now its happened again, with a completely different agency, with a photo I found on Creative Commons (and credited back to the source). Unfortunately, I did not realize that giving credit and a link back to the original site/author/artist was not sufficient. I feel bullied and over-lawyered. So, to avoid further issues, I am forced to take this extreme action and delete all my posts dating back to when I began this blog in 2007. I will continue to post articles, but using only my own photos from now on.
I appreciate your ongoing support
