ok :-)

Actually Jujuba, where I say, 'I wanted to post your photo called ------', I usually say to them, 'I would like to post your photo called -----'. It just sounds so much nicer that way, instead of the other way I said before... :)

You're always welcome, Jujuba. I wish you all the best with that.... :)
2010-05-13 14:53:08
It does, thanks a bunch :-)

That may be true jujuba, but I'm a native english speaker, and sometimes I get my words so tangled up on here I can't even figure out what I was trying to say myself! lukily they don't vote on our spelling, I'd have been kicked out a long time ago. :)

Certainly Jujuba. This is what I usually say to the photographer... Dear ------, Hoping you are well. My name is Mary. I am 52 years of age and I live in Melbourne, Australia. The reason for my email is to ask you if I may have permission from you to post one of your very beautiful photos on a website called Pixdaus ? I wanted to post your photo entitled, '---------'. I will credit your photo and will put down also where I found your photo. I will also send you the link of the picture so that you can view that. If you do not wish to give permission, then I will understand. Thankyou so much for your time. I hope your week is going well. Please take care.. Kindest regards, Mary.. I try to be as nice as I can to them. And I also try to mention how beautiful their photo is. When I've made contact with them and I get the go ahead to post, then I tell them my screen name on Pixdaus so that they know who to look for. I also give them the link to their photo, just to show them if I have things right with it. I always think it's good manners to do that, especially since they are kind enough to allow me to post their work. Hope that helps you with that, Jujuba...

May I ask what you say exactly in this request to the photographer?
2010-05-13 13:58:53
Thanks Jujuba. You sometimes can get the odd nice one here and there from the public domain, but the CC pics and defintely the all rights reserved are the better pics. BTW Jujuba, you can always ask permission to post for the all rights reserved photos. Most times the photographer will allow you to use his/her work and usually will answer you pretty much straight away... :)

You should have 'faith' going into one of these forests cause you donīt know what your 'fate' will be ;-) :P
2010-05-13 13:40:41
Oh well Skip, non-native speakers of English sometimes get lost in the words :P
2010-05-13 13:38:54
I agree with you that pics under the CC are more appealing than the ones from public domains...
2010-05-13 12:21:36
Thankyou Skip. You are very thoughtful yourself to say your kind words about me. I am very touched and grateful... :)

Thankyou Jujuba. I'm not sure if I would be the first one though to think of posting from Creative Commons. I'm sure others have done so before I did. I should really give credit to Poppy, because she very kindly gave me some links to post pics from public domain sites. I just thought that I would delve in a little deeper and see what this Creative Commons thing is all about, because the pics from these sources, are a little bit better than those that come from the public domain. Thankyou again, Poppy. And thankyou too, Jujuba...:)

I was just noticing how "Mist" and "Mysterious" seem to always go together...I have a thing about words :) and I think you're right, the mist or fog makes you wonder what's beyond it,, hopefully something good like you said :) I will look for that movie you mentioned, sounds good, and your right, Mary deserves the credit for making an effort to do the right thing with the pics, she's always thoughtful about everything, I just thought your idea was good too, cause it might save some time if the photographers have already agreed to their pics being used as long as credit is givin. btw the typo was funny, I was wondering how a garden could have faith? :)
2010-05-13 06:57:50
typo = *has its 'fate' changed

I also love them Skip. Thereīs something enchanting as well as spooky about misty forests, you never know what kind of creatures youīre gonna find in there ;-) (cute ones, hopefully :P) If you get the chance, watch a movie called 'The Secret Garden' (1 and 2). Itīs not about mysterious forests, but itīs about an abandoned, gray, lifeless garden which has its faith changed once some children find it and bring love into it. Warning: get a box of tissues ready :P And I was not the first one to bring this Creative Commons thing to attention - my inspiration came from Maryīs (PictureGirl) efforts :-)

I love these misty/fog pics so mysterious and beautiful looking, and I wanted to thank you for bringing up this creative commons thing jujuba, I have seen it before, but I hadn't thought to go looking for them, great idea! :)
