One of the staples of making this site interesting over the years, especially when it comes to writing about travels or issues of economics that could bore the socks off most nearly everyone, has been to use only pictures I’ve taken myself.
That means no pictures that came from someone else’s blog, or some companies’ press pictures that were carefully shot during a day-long photo session to espouse values of good corporate ethics and morality even though they just look tacky, or from anywhere else. When I need a picture for something, I’ll go get it myself.
And so should you. If you like the pictures on this site and really want to use them for something, let me know and more than likely, you can go ahead and use them with acknowledgement back to this site. But please, don’t just presume they’re free for the tacking without contacting me first – otherwise I’ll contact you before long.
