19. June, 2009 - it’s just a job


Things at work have me cranky again. Mostly a couple co-workers who haven’t been getting the bits I need from them done on time, which has led to me falling behind while I wait for them. But I need to remember that it’s just a job. Plus, the Saints start a new home-stand this weekend, so I’ll have baseball.

In other news, the Star Tribune used one of my photos without permission earlier this year. It’s the photo of the Quadriga at the Minnesota State Capitol that appears to the left. Got my lawyer to send them a letter, and they pulled the photo down almost immediately after receiving the letter, but I haven’t heard any reply from them yet. Not only did they strip out my copyright information and publish the photo without my permission, but they misspelled my name when they attributed me. I guess we’ll see what develops there. I think the thing that pisses me off most is that I’m generally pretty easy to work with when someone asks permission to use one of my photos. I generally don’t give them away, but I’ve turned very few people away. But they didn’t even bother to ask first.

And I think that’s about it for this time. I’m trying to be a little better about more frequent updates, but that means I might not have a ton to say sometimes.
