Google Reverse Image Search

The night before last I decided to do a reverse look up of some of my images i haven’t checked on in awhile. There are images that i have that people have taken them off my websites and manipulated them to their liking. Some have even cut out my copyright and added their own. Tumblr and Pinterest seem to be popular places for these images. I once had to sue a company for illegally using a photograph of mine but that’s as much as i can say as in order to get the money for the image i had to sign a disclosure that i will never mention it for the rest of my life.

So google reverse image search is my friend to say the least.

Never however have I came across someone using one of my photos to sell personalized items on Ebay. Just because you’re in the UK guy (mon memories) doesn’t mean I wont find out. As you all know I sell a meerkat chistmas card on zazzle.com and redbubble.com. I took this photo of these meerkats at the zoo, than added santa hats to them later.

This ebay user has decided to swipe my photo and use it to make money.

As of today.. 21 mugs have been sold.

And there is a pillow too.

So i contacted eBay and reported the seller two days ago, but I haven’t heard back yet.

Anyway the point of this is, if you’re a photographer and you have some popular images in your collection, just check on them from time to time.

Also, I dislike very much evil people.

Pictures lost on a faulty hard drive

Foggy Night on the hook

We were having a super foggy night and i decided to drive out to Ediz Hook to check out the scene. Basically you couldnt see two feet in front of you so it was a bit of a failed experiment. But did get one pretty picture from the venture.

Fall Foliage

I drove down Deer Park Road for the first time ever and ended up turning around at the park entrance. I got a few pretty shots of the fall foliage though on the way up. I will have to see if my tiny sports car can make it on the gravel road next time.. maybe.. Or I should get a ride in someone’s vehicle.
