Just a quickie on Copyright

I can't believe I have to write this.

All of the photographs on this blog have been taken by me unless otherwise stated (usually below the image but very occasionally somewhere in the post which contains the images). This includes all photographs that go with the recipes I have posted, even if the recipe itself is attributed to another creator.

You are permitted to use any of my photographs, except those depicting my family, so long as they are not for commercial purposes (which includes placing them on blogs that have paid advertising unless you have my explicit permission). You must give appropriate credit and link back to this blog if you post my photographs online. I don't want to have to start watermarking each photograph because honestly it's a pain in the ass.

It is copyright infringement to claim or imply that any photographs you have posted are your own by not giving appropriate credit. What's worse is that it's just downright dishonest and shitty, don't do it.

That's my PSA for the day.

Explanation: I'm writing this because not only were some of my photographs used somewhere else (which in itself I'm not particularly bothered about, it is the internet after all and I am fully aware of the risks of posting my images online) but I have been recently accused of infringing copyright when the photographs were actually taken by me and used on another website where the person was claiming them as their own. It was that which totally pissed me off. The issue has been resolved, but always remember to save your originals just in case!

I am a 24 year old British stay at home mother to a two year old boy. Married to a U.S. soldier and currently living in Germany.

I have seen the Vatican from the very top of St Peter's Basilica, the mud in the World War I trenches outside Ypres. I have walked through Montmartre side streets bustling with people in the evening, gotten lost in the streets of Greenwich Village NYC, run through cornfields on the Welsh border and sat outside with a cup of tea watching fireflies in the fields of the outer Chicago suburbs.

I have held the hands of others through addiction, fear, suicide, despair and come out the other side. I have left everything behind to begin anew.
I have fought mental illness and walked through snow in the mountains of the lake district, England. I have explored the morgue in the bowels of an abandoned hospital on a summer evening, climbed to the top of scaffolding on the outside of a five floor warehouse to look at the city lights of Nottingham at night and I have watched the sun setting on the Texas horizon.

I have held my son's tiny hand through the plastic window on an isolette in the NICU ward. Walked, speaking only in whispers, through the catacombs beneath the ground on the outskirts of Rome and seen the fireworks over Heidelberg castle.
