Barcelona, a photo a day

Skywatch Friday

The sky, one evening above the roofs of the square just behind your house.
This is for Skywatch Friday, as usual.

Something else. I came upon a website today, offering one of my photos to download. I don’t actually mind, except that they never asked. My photos, and yours as well, are protected by copyright.

So I wrote them. I haven’t received an answer yet. If they do not answer within a decent amount of time, and if they don’t remove my photo, I will name and shame them.

So, whoever you are, if you want to use one or several photos on this blog, please feel free. BUT PLEASE ASK ME BEFORE YOU DO IT!!! If you don’t, it’s a criminal offense, and I will need to take legal steps. This is my work of love, not yours!

  1. Jackie, I just googled the name of this blog, searching for images. The site removed the picture. There is a Firefox add on called 'who stole my pictures' as well

  2. Silhouettes and sunset, nice photo, hope I'm lucky 13 for you..!

    Where did you find your stolen photo? I don't really know what we can do to protect ourselves from that kind of theft. I hope you find the culprit.

  3. How annoying for you! The fact that they haven't replied speaks volumes. But carry on the good work!

  6. Keep us 'posted' on developments, Rob. What a fine twilight you've caught here.

  7. Beautiful light tones and the building structures shape interesting silhouettes against the fading light!

    Really sorry to hear about the theft of your photos! That's simply selfish! And to pretend that they have rights to share your photos damages any integrity they may have had!

  10. This was just published:

    Apparently there is a Firefox add-on for chasing down the photo thieves.

  12. Ganavim. Such chutspah.

    Hey, are those bells on the left? A belltower without walls? Great idea.

  13. Thank you for sharing your photos with us, for our viewing only, of course, and I am sorry someone has pirated your photos.

  14. Beautiful skywatch photo Rob, like the silhouette against the pinky orange sky. What a drag about your photo, I agree I don't mind at all if people want to use, but it's only courtesy to ask first, hope it gets sorted peacefully!
