My photos turn up in unexpected places when I search

One time I explored various tags of mine on the blog posts over the years.

For example        Dogs was one. Cats was another.

This evening I went to search “soup rutheh” to see some other images of soup that I’ve posted.  And there are a lot. Soup season in upon us.  I like to make soup.

But here is what else I found.  There were at least eight other websites/blogs using photographs I’ve taken without having asked permission and there’s no photo credit.  Over the past decade I have received requests from magazines, textbook authors, CD producers and  brochure creators and a television show, asking to use a photograph and  I’ve granted permission for them to do so.

It’s something to see an early morning school bus headlights and recognize the scene as one I captured being used on a site to illustrate “The Impact of School Start Times” .  One of the sites with my jar of jelly beans photographed in my former Photo Class is on a website that is No Longer Found but still, how can they just take it and use it without even asking?  Another site of What Do They Eat? has all of my minestrone ingredients with my Spode dish on my kitchen table.  I get the idea of the Pinterest pins in different categories and somehow the internet knows they are my photos even though they are showing up on other’s sites and posts because there they are coming up in my search. I know my grandson saw their family dog on someone else’s website about Airedales.  Taken from the blog.

I guess one puts a photograph out there into the world and others think it is just fine to snare it and use it.

For all the people who give photo credit and request permission, thank you.  It means a lot.

Here are a few of the photos that come up when I searched “soup rutheh” and were found on other sites

We’re Talking Trash Now      Why trash comes up with a “soup” search is beyond me.

 

Pot of English Breakfast Tea   On this one they did include my name


I knew this was my photo too, on another site  Essie’s Orginal Hot Dog Shop

Oh well, you get the idea. There were a few others.

 

Recliners in the Rain

Recliners in the rain. Spotted on Ella Street in Bloomfield. You know these discards catch my eye.

Too bad they couldn’t be salvaged and used by someone else. And then the rain comes and soaks then through.

Toilet and Utility Sinks Await PickUp

I got excited when I saw this combination on an adjacent street the other day. Drove around the block to capture this image. Toilets in unexpected places can be a surprise.

You saw the pink toilet in the snow last week.  There’s another one from 2011 post below. 

 

What I found across the street from school in 2011 post

What I Couldn’t Throw Out

First posted almost 8 years ago. Mark is now 42.

The kids all grown up and gone now, I’m still going through stuff in my house. Trying to clean it all out.

These animals with their faces, ugh.

Do you find it easy to throw things out?

From 2010.

WHAT I COULDN’T THROW OUT

Purchased in 1977 in New York City at Creative Playthings. Rubbery farm animals.  Nice to clutch and carry around when you’re almost two. I bought them for baby Mark who’s 34 now.  Maybe the paint is unsafe for the grandchildren, plus they have a hole in their stomach so whatever dirt and mold in the basement the past 20 years is living inside them.  I put them in the contractor bag to drag to the curb and I swear the cow’s eyes looked at me.

I took them out.

Photographed them.

Their faces have the loveliest expressions.

Christmas Tree and Couch, Curbside

Clintonville. On Calumet. In Columbus.

No kidding.

That’s a lot of Cs.

I saw this Christmas Tree and the couch waiting for pick up. Some people put their trees out right after Christmas.

Maybe the trees have up since Thanksgiving and the needles are dropping like crazy.

Guaranteed Distraction?

“What about you: what is guaranteed to distract you? What is your “Ooh, shiny!”?Weekly Photo Challenge

Garbage.  Unexpected.

I’m fascinated by trash. Litter, too. Funny thing is, I find it difficult to throw things away.  Here are previously featured found garbage photos. I even did a Garbology post.   “the study of a community or culture by analyzing its waste.”

Here’s a sample of my photos of cat trees, toilets, chairs, aquarium, couches, champagne bottles, old televisions.

Do you know someone who purchased exercise equipment and regretted it later?

Or joined a gym and after an initial effort, quit going BUT  failed to resign so paid a monthly fee for years?  Hmmmmmmm
