Mum likes reading, decorating, shopping with the girls, and Starbucks. She also feels funny writing in the 3rd person. Papa (also known as Sparky) is currently looking at me with a blank stare having asked him to add something about himself to the blog. (Now he wants to say something) The only thing he loves more in life than music and Coke is his wife and kids. (Awww...) :) Little Lotte is a genius on the computer and makes me fall over laughing every day with her quick wit. She loves computers and animals. Sweet Pea abandoned her family and moved to Phoenix for work and is now married as of 2/28/06. She is beautiful and smart and the most nurturing person I know. She gave me the greatest gift ever when she made me a grandmother. I am the proud Mum Mum to Andrew Christopher. There are no words to describe the joy of having a grandson!

Remember this picture?


I took this picture. The superintendent sent me an email to thank me, asking me to send it in a higher resolution as he wanted to share it with his family! That made me feel happy because it was meant to be shared with him!


See this? See my name at the bottom of the photo for the credits? Neither do I.

The super. sent it to the local paper. The local paper prints pictures and usually gives the credit of who took the photo. Not this time. I am a little miffed. I mean, this is my first published photo. I wasn't asked, permission was not given, but I would have taken it better had they given the photographer (that would be me) credit. Would be nice to have in my portfolio but without my name, I can't prove it's my work.


Hmmmmffff. What would you do?

call and write the paper. Demand credit where credit is due. Certainly the superintendant wouldn't deny you your credit? Besides, you have this blog and his e-mails to prove the photograph was yours. Its not like you are seeking $, just credit. And that much is definately due you. Did they post the pic as anonymous? Or give someone else credit? I'm sure the paper will make the correction (in tiny print noone but you will see, but it'll be there, and you'll know it.) Seriously, you deserve the credit, and if the photo was sent in with no mention of you having taken it, the paper had a duty to ask about the identity of the photographer. Technically, I think you could sue for lack of permission to print. It is your work, and for them to mass distribute without your permission or knowledge, when someone else sent the photo in without the proper credit, the paper was derelect in its duties.
