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?

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.

  • 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.
