I recently added this PDF of five photo-based writing prompts to my Classroom Departures activity and resource portal. [working title]
Below is a sample. Enjoy…
1. Alex Markovich shares the products of his photography skills.
2. Virginia puts life in perspective with her Roses in the Rubble.
Quote: “What does it take to stop you? There are all sorts of crutches that keep us from moving forward after our spills (splat) on the pavement of life: bruised egos and empty pockets, tears and fears, maybe sprained hearts too hurt to love anew.”
3. Shape Shifter Fitness keeps me on the culinary straight-and-narrow. Well, he tries to.
Quote [about turmeric]: “The difference it’s made in the quality of Stella’s life by adding it to her dog food has been amazing, and I’ll always be a huge proponent of its benefits for that alone.”
4. Cristian Mihai shares his views and expertise on blogging.
Quote: “Accept that you have to add value.”
So, I took photos of folks in a parade years ago.
I looked into acceptable uses of the photos and this page provided some clarification.
One key point: You need permission from the subject if the picture is used for commercial purposes. Okay, no problem there.
But what if the person is NOT recognizable? See below. Do I still need permission from this Chewbacca clone? [Not that I have any clue who or where this person is now. Hey, even fingerprints wouldn’t help. ;->]
If anyone can clear this up, I would appreciate it.
