waiting to be published..
and I did.
I've posted them below to share,
I've also complied with the author of those posts..
removed her photos as she requested.
You see,in my earliest days of blogging ignorance..
I often "Googled" for photos to illustrate my blogs..
Before removing the photos, I did want to apologize..
and give her full credit..because the photos were beautiful!
I NEVER TOOK CREDIT FOR THE PHOTOS..
NOR CLAIMED THEM AS BEING MINE AS SHE ALLUDED!
but upon following back by clicking on her name..
I hit a dead end..
there was no way to contact her..
So Bonnie Woodson , if you are reading this..
I do apologize for using your photos without your expressed or written permission.
I also apologize for sharing with my readers wonderful photos ...
which so perfectly depicted the beautiful Landmarks on our Emerald Coast..
which so perfectly conveyed the emotions I feel about my native soil.
And dear readers..a valuable lesson has been learned..
when using Google Images..
there are only two right choices from which to choose:
always either give credit to the owner..
or do not use..
Finally, when leaving a comment..whether good or bad..
ALWAYS have an email listed..
Duh! so the recipient will be able to contact you!
