Thanks for your kind comment Whisper. I enjoyed writing and posting my adventures.. it was a way to express myself. I only discovered this Authors website a couple of months ago..so although it has slowed my postings.. I will get over it. I was just disappointed they took my stuff without asking...as they are using it commercially.
I have been asked a few times by folks if they can use my stuff ..including requests from a well known author in Scotland .. and I have always agreed.. plus giving them more options or photos to chose from.
I did have my own blog..and stopped it when I started posting on here and other forums. Anyone who wants back dated adventures can find them here. I may start it up again next year..or continue posting on here. If the Rolling Stones can put up with folks putting their songs on bit torrent..I can surely put up with unscrupulous authors using my rubbish..they couldnt be much of an Author anyhoo..if they though my efforts were useful to them
Link to my old blog ..if its agent forum rules..it can be deleted. ..its just a blog of old adventures..many not posted here
Inflatable Boat Journeys From Scotland
Link to an unscrupulous authors site .. (to comply with the rule Willk posted)..in case anyone things Im making it up.
The Old Grey Man, the Murder Hole, and the Merrick Moor Â» Risky Regencies
I wrote an adventure called “The Old Grey Man, The Murder Hole and The Merrick” many of my sentences illustrate the web page..oh..and the photos are all mine..but lifted and pasted into their website..not linked. They did offer anyone who wants more photos and info on the area .. a link to the original Adventure I wrote.. but did not ask permission..and I never knew except by accident two months ago.
The Scottish Author who wanted to use a photograph of mine..enrolled on that site..PM and asked me if she could use it. In return I gave here many more photos and she gave me credit in her Book..all parties were happy.
Anyhoo..as explained..that is why I was interested in JonP's comments..I might be wrong and that author is entitled to sell her book based on my work
Just a note to JonP ..I think if we were both honest..its not the net that has done Photographers out of work..its digital cameras.. anyone and everyone has them.. the secret of staying in work is offering something the normal guy cant.
