What is mine – is mine!
Some days my blog has a boost in visits. Today is one of them. I made a search on google for some of my most visited photos, and I am not happy.
I share, almost anything, but I would never steal. NEVER! So when others do, I get both sad and angry. This is MY content! I use a lot of time and money, to travel, to photograph, to edit, to share. To make photos others like to see. To please my very good and quite large audience here on this blog.
I sometimes sell photos, and I also take jobs photographing for people or companies. But this is not my first source of income. That does not mean that others can use my photos without asking me.
So here is what I found today
From my Ocean week series I published two photos of one of Norway’s most beautiful sailing vessels, “Christian Radich”, see below.
These photos are used by Juan Pablo Meneses in a book (or publication) called “Cronica Navegando por el cabo de Hornos”. Read more here: http://www.revistamundodiners.com/?p=2747

SHAME ON YOU ALL! I would probably have said yes and ok if you had only asked. Now you just make me sad.
Here are my originals, enjoy. Don’t steal.
