Yesterday morning I woke up and checked my email, as I always do. I had a nice note from a writer in Rhode Island asking permission to use one of my photos in a news story. She writes for the GoLocal Providence website and was working on a story about winterizing historic homes. Of course, I said yes. I'm not sure how she came across the photo, I forgot to ask. I assume she used "Google" to find it. It always surprises me but I can't tell you how many times I've used Google for something and found my own photos appearing! And it's always fun to see my work make it's way in the world. I'm supportive of legitimate and ethical journalists that remember to ask permission, too! The photo not only appears in the story itself, but is also used on their front page running banner, and on the Real Estate first page teasing and linking to the story. A good time was had by all, lol!
