"And imagine your website has used a lot of Getty embeds over the years — enough that Getty can actually sell ads specifically targeting your website, using all that data it’s gathered. Or imagine there are enough Getty embeds that it could sell ads only on photos of Barack Obama, or only photos about Cajun music, or only photos about restaurants in Kansas City. You can start to see the potential there. Think of how many YouTube videos were embedded on other websites before Google ever started putting ads on them."

so Getty gets to know your traffic, who visits your blog and what pages they look at even if they don't click. And of course they can consolidate that to learn other blogs they visit. Talk about targeted ad potential..

The one thing I would say about california is that they are probably the most adaptable state. I am sure they will fnd a solution for their water problem in the coming years. I fully expect it to be something sustainable and environmentally friendly and years ahead of other states. Probably large scale water reclamation and reuse,

Morning above the South San Jose Valley. This lone oak is yet to get its leaves this year. I love the green grass on the hills this month but decided the sepia filter emphasized the intricate form of the oak branches – form and light.

"The new library of photos shows professional women as surgeons, painters, bakers, soldiers and hunters. There are girls riding skateboards, women lifting weights and fathers changing babies’ diapers. Women in offices wear contemporary clothes and hairstyles and hold tablets or smartphones — a far cry from the typical stock photos of women in 1980s power suits with a briefcase."   #nf  
Sheryl Sandberg’s nonprofit organization is partnering with the photo agency to try to eradicate stereotypes in stock images and portray women in more empowering ways.
