You can put a watermark on your photos and put your information in the exif data. If your work is good, your photos may get copied and they may get “stolen”, by which I think you mean posted without our consent? That is the nature of the internet.
They may also be “shared” and “enjoyed.” This is also the nature of the internet. We live in the digital age where media moves quite freely. I choose to believe there are more people who will acknowledge and appreciate my efforts at creating interesting images of wildlife and nature than there are those who will try to take advantage of me. I am grateful for all of the folks who take the time to look at my work and I always enjoy hearing from people, like yourself, who have enjoyed seeing the photos I create. That’s just what it is about for me. Of course, I would like to make money from my work, but I feel my chances of that happening are greater if I share my work and let people get to know me. Good luck. NJ
As some of you know, I occasionally post some of my improvisational cooking adventures. So here is a hit from tonight.
Rip and massage the hell out of a couple of large pieces of kale with a little olive oil. Add lightly steamed broccoli, cut in small pieces. On the bbq…grill 3 or 4 stalks of asparagus and two peaches, sliced. Chop ‘em up and throw then in. And some pumpkin seeds and chia seeds. Toss with a little more olive oil (I used lemon) and a splash of a good balsamic. (You could use white or red)
Coming soon-warm spinach salad with strawberries and dates.
Watching an episode of PBS Nature called Jungle Eagles-about the harpy eagle. This is the largest eagle in the world. Their nest is the size of a double bed…and the male just swooped in carrying a capuchin monkey! Now this is reality tv!
