This isn't really a question, but I'm really enjoying your photography that you're posting more often now. Keep it up!
Wow! Thank you.
I have to return the honor by saying your posts are always some of my most enjoyable through out the day. You have an amazing eye for design and all things awesome it feels like. Which makes your comment doubly awesome. I also love your tumblr name.
“Let’s briefly examine Getty’s relationship to Flickr photographers. You may be honoured that the world’s largest agency has taken an interest in your images, but please remember that Getty keeps 80% of whatever it makes on your photos, and that it retains exclusive rights to those images. This is a much larger slice of the pie than the 50% the agency typically extracts from its non-Flickr photographers; the tactic of demanding usurious rates from amateurs and hobbyists is basically predatory and will eventually be used as leverage to bring its fold of professionals to capitulate to higher taxes on their images. As photographer to HM the Queen Rod Edwards has said, “It’s no longer an honour to be represented by Getty. It’s an embarassment.”
