Gut Licht für Karl Louis !
Copyright infringements are a pain in the neck not only for photographers. There are too many parasites out there who misuse the work of others. On this blacklist will be websites with a commercial purpose only, which means t...

A side of Japan, I never thought I would see. I was under the impression that the respect the Japanese pay to their elderly is unmatched.
Taken in the capital Tokyo, newly-released images show clean-up crews entering rubbish-strewn buildings where they lonely victims spent their final days.

I've finally had the tome to sit down and post something from a shoot I did with Allyce back in March. This is inside the palace at Nagoya Castle.

There are so many festival in Japan in May. Don't miss them just because you didn't know about them.
Here's one you might want to check out:
The Aioi Peron Matsuri (相生ペーロン祭り) is a dragon boat race festival. It is held every year on the last weekend of May at Aioi Bay, Hyogo Prefecture.

WARNING: Bloggers Beware - Image Licenses May Not Cover Social Media

When creating images for your blog posts, you're going to have to be even more careful about which images you choose to use. Even if you pay for an image to use within a blog post graphic, that image may not be licensed for use on social media - and of course we all want our blog posts to be shared to social!

I am specifically referring to fotolia.com, which has a subset of images that are specifically marked as acceptable for social media usage. You can purchase and incorporate those images into a blog post and then it's OK when you and others share that post, and image, so social. But none of the other images that you legally purchased can be used in that way, according to Fotolia's terms of use.

Upon further research, I also noted that if Fotolia terminates their agreement with you, according to the terms of use, you are obligated to destroy all of your purchased images.

I don't want to turn this into a commercial for +Canva, but at least there it's clear that you can take the graphic that you create, and any licensed and purchased images within that graphic, and use it wherever the heck you want.

"Once you’ve published your design, you are free to use that design multiple ways. When you purchase a One Time Use License for the images in your design, the license covers the use of the images in that design and restricts the number of designs the image may be used in, but not the number of ways the design may be used."

I also reviewed the terms of use for istockphoto.com and there's no such stipulation there, but I know there are many other services from which you can purchase images, and I'm sure, like me, many of you assumed that if you paid for an image, you can use it for blog posts that are shared to social.

So be careful out there!

Very funny
 
I don't think jumping in a photo is a sufficient demonstration of stereotype-breaking, but it's a start. Kinda like signing up for a marathon is a start for actually completing it.

Strontium-90 and Cesium-137 density in rain and dust increased over 1,000% of when Chernobyl accident took place, according to nuclear regulatory agency.

This is based on their data base but back data of each year is not attached.

The graphs below are titled as “Change of Sr-90 and Cs-137 density in Japanese rain and dust over the years (1974-2012)”. The specific location is not mentioned.

Their report says the monthly fallout of Sr-90 and Cs-137 had been decreasing since they banned atmospheric nuclear test in 1981.

However it increased in 1986 due to Chernobyl accident. It went back to the decreasing trend since then, but they observed the increase after 311 again.

 

Their data reads the highest density of Sr-90 was approx. 10 MBq/km2・month in 1986. However it jumped up to nearly 1,000 MBq/km2・month in 2011.

Also regarding Cs-137 density, it reached approx. 500 MBq/km2・month in 1986 but it went over 10,000 MBq/km2・month in 2011.

Travel photographer in Nagoya, central Japan
Introduction
I'm a photographer living in central Japan in Nagoya City, the home of the Toyota Motor corporation. Nagoya is the richest and second most expensive of the cities in Japan. It lies right in the centre between Tokyo and Osaka. I often find myself going to events and festivals in Nagoya, Nara, Kyoto, and the surrounding areas.

Note, I only circle people if I can see their profiles.
