Remembrance Day November 11, 2012.

“We will Remember them…”

I found the original beautiful  photo of a sunset over a poppy field  on Twitter but  because it was someone else’s and I could not find the source I removed it. I tried to find the owner but got no answer from the person on the site and did not know if the photo was public domain so  replaced it with one of my own.. My main objective was to remember the men and women who gave their lives in service and I tried to find a photo to go with the sentiment. No offence intended.

  2. It is not my photo, I figured it was public domain because I saw no copyright., but like you I found it to be a beautiful image.I will take it off soon -sure don’t want to get busted 😦 It is a day to take time and ponder, hear the stories and give thanks to those who have served.

  3. Jane, what a lovely choice of photo! When I can’t illustrate a blog with one of my own photos, one of my favorite places to turn are Flickr photos that have been published under a Creative Commons license (http://www.flickr.com/creativecommons/). I typically pick the sub-category that has an “Attribution License”. To use the photo I only have to say who it was that published the photo in my post, and I’ve met all the licensing criteria. Here’s one of many that were published under such a license that depict poppies: http://www.flickr.com/photos/adambelles/4374595221/

    • Thank you, I am on Flicker but my photos are copyright.although people can copy them as “Favourites”. But as long as you can use Creative Commons licence that sounds good. The one I used was “re-tweeted” from another person’s site on Twitter.I did go back to the site and asked if she knew who the photo was by but no answer yet. So Thank you for the information – I think it is important and will check out that feature for sure.I like the photo of the poppies, by the way.
