Creative commons and family vacations

Over New Years we took a lovely family vacation to Adelaide. I  quickly took a snap on New Years Eve Day 2008 at Semaphore Beach. This morning I found an email from Schmap online travel guides asking permission to shortlist this photo – which I had saved as Creative Commons on Flickr – for their page on Semaphore.

Semaphore Beach – blue skies – soft sand

Now I can join my friends  Andy Piper and Amy Palko as someone who has been schmapped! Nice surprise :)

Do you save your content as Creative Commons? I really enjoyed this story by Jeremy Keith about his Flickr photo which became a background  image in the recent Iron Man movie!

    I got approached by the BBC educuational unit last year asking if they could use a picture of mine in some online revision material for kids doing their exams.

    It’s not the most glamorous of photos but I was so proud to think of my picture being used to help in this way!

    I love making my photographs available through CC – you never know where they might end up…

      Hi Joanna! That’s great! I was also surprised they chose this particular photo, but as you say when you know it helps somehow…
      Today I also had a request to add my photo of the rambutan fruit to a Flickr group for an island in the Philippines. So true – you never know where they might end up – or who might experience a memory, an insight, or even a journey as a result!
