You may have seen this symbol floating around my site before, and may or may not have known what it is. Basically, what it means is that the work featured here and on other sites is protected by ‘Creative Commons’. What is that, you ask? In a nutshell, this license allows anyone to download these images for personal use, produce derivative work, and share as long as credit is given. The only thing it restricts is use of work in a commercial form. See more information in my About Me section.
Long Shadows on Old Building – Firoz Shaikh
Here’s a great example. I was contacted a while ago about using a photo as inspiration for an art piece by Firoz, and with the images under creative commons, that was perfectly acceptable. Personally, I love to see my work in other art forms. I photograph because I can’t paint, but Firoz can, and his watercolor depiction of an old Romanian building is a great example of others artistic talent.
