Thank You Getty Images and I Still Love Taking Photos

Are two heads better than one?  Can it be too much of a good thing?

Embed from Getty Images

Thursday afternoon I saw an email from WordPress announcing that Getty Images had added an embed feature and made it available free to non-commercial users.

So I took the embed feature for a test drive and wrote a post featuring an embedded Getty Image of giraffes.

I need to practice with the search features because there are about 35,000-45,000 images for every search I’ve made.
That’s a lot of time invested.


This morning a pair of ducks have decided to make our pool and backyard their new Nursery. Before I ran to shoo them away I grabbed my camera.
Then I thought, oh, Getty Images will have some great photos.

The ducks decamped and I didn’t get a photo.
I know they’ll be back and I’m glad because in the meantime I realized I enjoy trying to capture a moment through the lens myself.

I know that sounds like a two year old. “I want to do it myself”.

It’s not the first time I’ve sounded like a two year old.
So, I’m heading out the door with my Nikon to see if there’s a giraffe in town.

Have a great Saturday and keep your eyes open for wildlife, or just life.

  1. I love these Kelly… I am so proud of you and you are so smart. Keep up the good work. Carole Great is the sun, and wide he goes Through empty heaven with repose; And in the blue and glowing days More thick than rain he showers his rays. Though closer still the blinds we pull To keep the shady parlour cool, Yet he will find a chink or two To slip his golden fingers through. “Summer Sun” by Robert Louis Stevenson

    • Thanks Carole, that’s sweet of you. I thought I knew every RLS poem, but this one is new to me. It’s beautiful. I memorize poetry with the grandkids and now I have a new one just in time for Summer.
