I have cds and an external hard drive with lots and lots of photos, some of which are catalogued, some not. I browse through them, sometimes looking for inspiration, sometimes looking for a specific photo and often going down many side roads in the process.
I thought it may be useful to offer a few of these images under Creative Commons for others to use as they wish. I am a firm believer in sharing and giving back to others who give in many other ways.
Beginning today I will provide an image on Tuesdays which will fall under the Creative Commons Attribution license. Under Attribution you may copy, distribute, display and perform the image - and dirivative works based on it - but only if you give me credit for the original work, linking back to this blog. This license link and reminder will be posted along with the image that may be shared. All other images which do not have this link should be presumed to be copyrighted.
You may or may not like the images that I choose to share and that's fine. This is not a challenge for drawing or painting, you don't have to do anything. They are simply here to help provide inspiration on those days when you need it. If you do use them, I would love to see what you do with them.
The image will be uploaded at full resolution. Just click on it to see the full size.
The first image is Tripod, my cat. Well I say mine loosely, as he shows me disdain mostly as I have the audacity to leave him while I go to work each day. Little does he understand that someone has to earn money for cat food!
So tonight as I did my paparazzi moves on him, he grudgingly posed, while glaring at me sideways. He is obsessed with paper, among other things and flops onto any paper on the table the moment he is picked up as if there's a cat magnet in it.
The second image shows how he decided he'd had enough photos and took out his frustrations on a pen on the table.
