All of the images I use in my blogs are photographs I have taken myself, unless otherwise stated, so although I’m not precious about sharing, I would just like to say that:
The copyright for all of my work and photographs is legally mine by default, (as is everyone else’s). I am happy to share images and allow re-publishing of work, but would ask that it is attributed to me at http//theresagreen.me and that it’s not used commercially or for financial profit in any way without my permission – please and thank you!
The blog images
My aim for my blog posts is firstly to present a general impression of a place at the particular time I visit it so others may see it as it was; then I add in any details within it that space that caught my eye. I think that no matter how many times you visit a place, it rarely looks exactly the same as it did before; something will have changed if only the time of day or the weather. To that end, I use the photographs I take as a visual notebook and memory aid, and they often give me the framework for a post, which is linked together with words.
When it comes to taking images of something I may want to identify later, or to present in the blog, I will always try to obtain a well-focussed and well-angled shot, preferably more than one if it’s a moving subject such as an insect. That’s one of the many reasons I’ve ended up with files full of countless numbers of photographs, which one day I’ll find time to go through and sort out ….. (maybe).
