Photo use link love

I have over 10,000 photos posted to my Flickr account. You have my permission to use most of them for any reason. All I ask is attribution to me (“Richard Masoner”) and a link to Cyclelicious. It’s super easy, but most people still manage to mess up the terms of my license. I’m a nice guy so I occasionally link back to those online publications that I catch using my photos.

These links to Green Living Ideas don’t seem to work today, but they used a photo of a RideKick electric push trailer and another one featuring my patio container garden. Speaking of patio gardens, I dumped out the contents of my worm bin last weekend — this is two years worth of kitchen scraps. I’ll be planting stuff after the rain lets up in Santa Cruz.

Inhabitat used my popular photo of a guy cycling past a gas station sign.

Virtual Vitriol found a photo of my hands covered in grease.

The News Factor, an “online conservative news magazine,” tried using my photo of a trash truck.

An ITSEC blog used a screenshot in a story about BIOS trojans.

A Spanish language blog used another of my gas station signs in a story about U.S. gas prices.

Norcal Bikers linked to my NAHBS photoset. So did Milano Fixed, Pistamia Italy Fixed

Burbed used my photo of a traffic jam on Highway 101 in a story about homelessness in Silicon Valley.

The Takeaway illustrates a story on corporate personhood with my photo of oil pump jacks.

Lots of link love from San Jose Bike Party this week, hurrah!

    Picasa just superimposed an attribution for my photos on upload. No good?

    I will take you up on that offer. The first time I do, I’ll send an email so you can tell me if I did it right. If I can’t figure the email out, I’ll send it to Ed W. You have the same permission for any of my paltry few photos.

    You and Ed have carte blanch to do whatever you want with my photos. And thanks for the offer — but, umm, which Flickr user are you?

    I dunno. Can you point to an example of what it looks like?

    Black gold!
    We’re experimenting with Flickr and more recently with Tumblr. Tumblr seems to be getting more attention from us and visitors.

    It must be spring. I posted my own compost article this week, with lots of photos too.

    You have a lot of great photos and I for one think it’s great that you share them under the Creative Commons license. I was excited when I found some photos of Coyote Hills and the National Wildlife Refuge on Flickr. I grew up in Newark and my friends and I would ride across town, out to the Wildlife Refuge, cross the bridge over Hwy 84 and ride around at Coyote Hills before returning home. Several hours on the bike felt like nothing back then.

    Thanks Todd; glad you enjoy. Coyote Hills is indeed a pleasant area to ride around — very nice to have that bit of nature in our urban midst.

    I moved away from the Bay Area about 14 years ago and now live near Sacramento so I haven’t been to Coyote Hills in a long time.
