Open Letter to Photographers on Google+

Crediting respective photographers is something I take very seriously.  I always credit the respective photographers and if possible provide the link to their website. 

In my personal experience, photographers are generally happy to have their work exposed to a bigger audience as long as they are properly credited. Unfortunately, the copyright laws on social media are very loosely defined, and the last thing I’d want is to be accused of copyright infringement.

I don't want to waste my time promoting photographers who don't want to be promoted. And more importantly, I don't want to offend anyone with my actions. I understand that an artist bares their soul when publishing to the world, and I also understand that a work of art can only gain value with more exposure. But in the end, there is such a fine line on the internet between promoting work and copyright. It would appear that even crediting all photographers there could always be someone who has a personal problem with how their work is promoted. 

I am hoping to initiate a discussion on this subject as I would really like your opinion on how you perceive the work that I have put into this hobby. Let me know whether you want me to share your photographs or not. 

I usually find photos from my Pinterest board

The 12 Apostles
 
Beautiful Australia!
The Twelve Apostles

The Twelve Apostles is a collection of limestone stacks off the shore of the Port Campbell National Park, by the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia. Their proximity to one another has made the site a popular tourist attraction. Currently there are 8 apostles left but the name remains significant and spectacular especially in the Australian tourism industry.

The apostles were formed by erosion: the harsh and extreme weather conditions from the Southern Ocean gradually eroded the soft limestone to form caves in the cliffs, which then became arches, which in turn collapsed; leaving rock stacks up to 45 metres high. Now because of this erosion there are less than ten remaining.~ Wikipedia

Three-Toed Sloth Released to the Jungle.
 
Three-Toed Sloth Released to the Jungle.

We had the amazing opportunity to release this 3-Toed sloth back to the wild. When it is possible Safaricks Zoo and animal rescue will rehabilitate injured and abandoned animals then take them back to the jungle.

Tuvimos la oportunidad de liberar este perezoso de 3 dedos y dejarlo en su hábitat natural. En Safaricks Zoo rescatamos y rehabilitamos animales abandonados, para después devolverlos a la jungla. Conoce mas sobre nosotros.

Visítanos Safaricks Zoologico y la Playa de Maria Chiquita esta Fin de Semana.

All countries have destroyed there environment before they fix it.  In order to live in a green city you must be very rich because the only the rich can actually afford to be green. Most people don't understand this. You can't be green and poor it never works.
