Like every homeowner in all of Zone 7, I have daffodils blooming. But none are interesting enough, nor are my photographic skills advanced enough, to show them off. So why not let someone else’s daffodil photos do the job, heh? And while we’re at it, let’s consider the getting of free or almost-free photos online, starting with FLICKR.COM.
The mass daffodil shot above by Good Molecules appears on Flickr with these instructions: "All rights reserved" and "This photo is public." Does that mean we can use it with a link to the photographer?
This next one, by Andrew Stawarz " is available with "Some rights reserved," and there’s mention of the Creative Commons License. Again, not sure what to do with that info.
The very best photos on Flickr, the ones that were clearly done by professionals, are not available at all, and it doesn’t take a law degree to interpret this: "No usage allowed in any form without written consent of" the photographer.
Now let’s see what’s available for a small fee. On FOTOLIA.COM this 400-pixel shot costs a buck. I just want to walk right into this scene, then keep on walking through those mountains in the distance.
