Imagine My Surprise

When I went to this site and read a fine article on making paddles. http://paddlingtravelers.blogspot.com/

The surprise was the picture used...it was of me...one I'd used on my blog in the past. While imitation is supposed to be the height of flattery, I wondered how it had gotten there. A lot of photographers stamp PROOF over their pictures or post them with so few pixels so they cannot be copied. Most of us, when asked, are happy to share a photo (and ask for a mention of who took it). Hmmmmmmmmmm. The caption claims I am using a certain brand of paddle, but it is, in fact, a Mitchel.

Paddle safe...

I do recall that was the photo I took of you, using your camera, in April of '06. You used it in your blog June 10th of '06.

Yes, that's right Greg took it, now I remember, with Dick's camera, yea that's it -- it was 0930 in the morning . . .

Hi Silbs,
Adam here. If I remember right, I'm pretty sure I asked your permission two years ago if I could use the picture. I'll add Greg's link to the byline.

Or, if you prefer, I'll tak the photo down.

Let me know!

You are absolutely correct and I say so in the next of my blogs. Sorry I gave the wrong impression. My intention was to yank your chain about having the wrong brand of paddle in the pic. I will note this on your site as well.
