It ain’t that I want to pinch your shots: it’s that I want to know how to follow you – and I don’t mean in the bloody Reader. I want to get an email when you post, yes? You’re the only person whose site I’ve really liked who doesn’t provide one of those follow me by email thinggies. Allora – come posso seguirti? Any Italian blood? [grin]
I like to keep the look of my blog clean so all my links and widgets (perhaps to my detriment) are hidden. In the middle of the top of any page, you will see two black boxes; one with three lines in it and one with a magnifying glass. Click the tab with three lines and all my links appear as a drop down menu. On the far left at the top is my follow tab. Click it and you should be able to choose your frequency of email notifications. Otherwise (as I often do) just make a note to visit particular sites every now and then. I only post twice a week in general. Sorry; not a drop of Italian blood at all. Ciao!
Nah, you’re fine: it’ll only be old farts like me who don’t work out the obvious.
Extremely beautiful scenes and photos. Thanks very much for sharing I do hope people respect your ownership of such beautiful arts (your arts).
Thank you very much. One can only do so much. I guess the only guaranteed way not to have photos stolen is to not post at all on the internet.
Another question is how the copyright protect the art which is created by someone else (like architecture,…) and one may take a picture. Is the photographer breaking the copyright?
In general terms, if something is in public display it is free to be photographed. Of course, there are exceptions. Governments may insist you don’t photograph government, military or police sites. Artists, museums and salesmen may request you do not photograph their work. Best to check the rules for the country you are in or the site you are at.
