In the world of Internet communications, sometimes you just don’t have the “right” photo to accompany whatever it is you are writing about. Because my blog is considered more of a personal journal, I almost always use my own photos because photography is one of my passions.
But, I was recently searching for photos of the Los Angeles skyline and the California courts for another project, and nothing I had resident was working although I did find some things on the major photosharing sites like Flickr, Shutterfly, SmugMug and Picasa.
Then I tripped across this article at Arcagility entitled “100 Legal Sources for Free Stock Images. Laura Milligan lists them as follows:
- Most Popular
- Community Powered Content
- Artists Welcome
- Less is Sometimes More
- Stock Images Plus
I absolutely love it when someone has such a comprehensive site with links that would take us days to find on our own. I personally maintain a list of all Apple/Macintosh sites so I can keep up with the news I write for my user group's monthly newsletter which I'll share sometime if anyone is interested. What comprehensive lists do you have that you would be willing to share?
This photo of the Los Angeles skyline on Flickr was taken by Fort Ogden
This is the landing flight path at LAX looking toward downtown L.A., the city I was born in and love unashamedly. It is about six miles from my home and each time I fly home from somewhere, I get teary-eyed when I see this--and then the passover of the San Diego freeway. I'm almost home.
