A Photo First

While doing a search in Google on my user name (as one does, from time to time), I discovered that one of my photos has been borrowed from Flickr and used in a news story published online by the local CBS Radio affiliate!

I’m still processing this. I haven’t been compensated, but there is a photo credit. I’m sure if I put up a stink about it, they’d simply remove the photo. To be honest, I’m squeeing inside. It’s my first published credit in a media source besides my employer!

The link to the story is http://detroit.cbslocal.com/2011/12/14/public-invited-to-discuss-proposed-new-nuclear-plant-in-michigan/ . Clicking on the photo above goes to my Flickr.

About songdogmi

I'm a longhaired almost-hippie stuck in the inner suburbs of a major rust-belt metropolis who's thoughtful, creative, and kind of geeky. In exchange for a paycheck I run around in a cubicle maze most days. When I escape, I play music, hang out in coffee houses, dink around on the computer, take naps, and think I should be off in the woods somewhere. Every once in a while I get in my car and drive far, far away, though I've always come back so far.

    Thank you. 🙂 I got lucky that the wind and such allowed the vapor plumes to go up at an attractive angle. It’s not very often when I’ve passed the towers and seen that.
