Google's Big Image Grab - YOUR'S

I have one of many images now being displayed by Google for anyone who wants to steal it, Leviathan The only place I posted this image is on my web site where right click ability is blocked.
Now it’s being called The Sea Of Endless Journey to sell a web site package I have no doubt was stolen as well.
It seems people are using Google’s new image search to find work they can lift and use for free. It’s bad enough that they just take it from your site and post it full resolution on their’s but they make sure it can be easily right clicked for download too.
They even started a thread on their Webmaster Central Blog to promote it.
If Google doesn’t take it from your web site they will take it from here or from the client who paid for it. According to one of the ot…

For Jan

I guess this is a final gift for my cousin Janelyn who fell prey to the horrible illness that I imagine all women fear most, breast cancer. I know she can’t see it and I really hope that she is in a much, much better place than here and has finally found the peace she searched for the world over.

Printing on water color paper

I’m sure most people familiar with my work recognize these images. What makes these different is they are images of prints done on Arches water color paper. I started doing this sometime back on Strathmore w/c paper but have moved up to the better grade due to it’s finer grain rough texture.
These smaller prints were done on pieces cut down to 5″×7″, I use them for marketing. Definitely gets a potential client’s attention.

These look really nice in person with beautiful deep blacks and all the tones up to the white of the paper. However I have yet to get a color image I’m happy with, but I keep trying. Why print on this rather than regular photo? Well this grade of paper is archival but even my earlier works three years old haven’t faded in…
