Bicycle blog link love and other stuff…

Watch for Yet Another Book Giveaway later today!

Here’s another edition of link love to recognize those blogs that have used my Creative Commons licensed photos.

My photos posted to Flickr are (mostly) free to use, and the terms of use are posted plainly in my Flickr profile. To wit:

Most of my photos are available for your use under the Creative Commons “Share Alike” license. This means you are free to adapt, copy, and distribute my images with attribution as specified by me. A lot of people are pretty sloppy with the attribution part. It should look something like this:

Image Source: Richard Masoner.

Note my name and the link to my website. Note also that the Share Alike license has a requirement that any altered form of the image must have a similar “Share Alike” license applied to it. Note that I have no restriction for commercial or non-commercial use.

If you use of my photos, please leave a comment — this isn’t for permission sake, I just like to know where my photos have gone, and I’ll likely reciprocate with a link to you from my blog or via Twitter.

Most of you who use my images don’t bother to pay any attention to this license, but I’m not too uptight about it and I’ll still link back to those of you with worthwhile content.

The Green Changemakers uses a photo of Santa Cruz traffic on Ocean Street in 10 Steps to Walkable Cities.

Planetizen frequently links to good bike stories, including this widely discussed article that cyclists spend more than drivers at certain types of stores. They use a photo I staged with Paul of Bay Area Cargo Bikes. (Planetizen, BTW, is an awesome resource and completely exempt from my licensing requirements).

Milano Fixed likes my photo of the disco ball bike helmet at a cyclocross race.

Natural Resources Defense Council used one of my Christmas bike photos in “Dreaming of a BIKE Christmas.”

A financial news website used one of my gas station sign photos in 2012 Had Highest Ever Average Gas Price.
