Hmmm. I see a number of my image links have been removed since I posted. I often use links instead of uploading photos as a lazy way of crediting the source, because if a person clicks on the photo, they will be taken to the linked source.

When I post photos directly, I am careful to seek permission (when possible), check copyright restrictions, and post credits when I use other people's photos. My primary tool for researching ownership of images is TinEye. ( (On a couple of occasions, an image I created was claimed as owned and created by someone else. So far I haven't chosen to sue anyone over this issue, PINTEREST, but it is under consideration. I keep meticulous automated daily backups of my work, and because I keep copies of every layer that goes into creating every image, it is relatively easy for me to prove how and when I created what I created.)

This post was really the result of me satisfying my own curiosity. Sharing what I found was an afterthought. I found the trivia entertaining, and thought others might enjoy it also. Overall, this post is of little importance to me. If I have offended anyone with this post (or any other post) please let me know. I don't purposely offend people, although this IS where I post my less politically-correct ideas. My other blogs are my "serious" blogs.

I always keep backups of all photos that I link, and I have, on occasion, replaced photos when my links became broken. However, in this case, I have chosen to leave the broken links as broken links, just on the chance that someone found those posts offensive. Just sayin' (as my kids would say)

Seriously, if you wish I hadn't posted something, tell me. I'll probably take it down. If I don't take it down, I will at a minimum treat give your request serious attention, and I will never take down a response unless that response includes offensive language, images or ideas.
