Your Stuff on Facebook

So you have a Facebook account.

What rights do you have regarding what you post (comments, photos, and such)?

I don’t know.

But according to what this fellow found in their terms of use…

…putting any of your work up on Facebook you are giving them carte blanche to use your photos, artwork or writings for anything they want including, advertising, promotion etc…

So they’re excluded from any copyright protections, eh?

In my view, chalk up another negative in the Facebook column.

Mexico: Check Out This View!

Or at least check out these view “establishers.”

My wife Ruby and I were in Guaymas Valley (Mexico) again; this time, the last part of June. And we stayed with Margaret Miller again. (Did I already tell you that in an earlier post?)

For breaks and entertainment, I experimented with various “frames” for some pictures.

View from the Ground

Maybe I inadvertently set my camera on a bug...

Bird’s-eye-view photos are neat and have their place.

I like to take bug’s-eye-view shots as well.

So here are some taken during our recent visit to northwest Mexico.

The hose was filling the “dam” around the plants.
We left the project untended too long.

Desert Dipping

I am on my way home from my latest trip to Mexico.

Friday afternoon I went on a walk. On my way back to the desert village where I was staying (and where we used to live), I got to feeling quite warmed up by the sun. Thankfully, the course I was charting took me by an irrigation pump close to town.

Here is the same place from a different angle and closer up.

Well, I felt hot enough and it looked inviting enough . . . .


If you haven’t yet, you ought to try that sometime.
