A Photo of Austin

Here he is! I found this photo in the August/September 2007 special Family issue of Real Simple. I've contacted the magazine for permission to use the photo but haven't received a response, so I'm crediting them here, and anyone who has any additional info about the photographer or owner of the photo, please contact me!

Very cute kid! That's too cool to find a photo of your character.

About the spelling post: I know you've heard this before, but I love/hate Spellcheck. Catches those little typos that aren't too embarrassing, but misses those homonyms, etc., that are brutally embarrassing. Sometimes I'm typing or writing so fast that I do make awful blunders that Spellcheck doesn't catch.

Had to stop on the sweater. Still sewing dresses and skirts. MUST finish them tomorrow so that I can get back on the sweater. Have both sleeves done and the entire body up to the sleeve holes, but no way I'll have it done by the 23rd. I'll post a photo soon showing my progress.

Have a good one!

True, Spellcheck does help - especially if I scribble a two line email and forget to reread it, then Spellcheck saves me from some embarrassing mistakes...
I'm still working on the same darn sweater! As much as I complain about not making progress in my writing, I'm even slower doing large knitting projects - but at least I can whip up hats and scarves :-)
Deniz, if you can't gain permission (and I know what it's like to find the perfect photo), search through Wikimedia. They have thousands of great photos, with clear permission bases, from no attribution to the photographer's name.

Good luck!

Hey Deniz.

Not to be alarmist, but you might want to check out a recent post by Roni Loren, an author and blogger who was sued for using a picture on her blog without the copyright owner's permission. Here's the link:

In a nutshell, it's not enough to credit a picture, or even to take the picture down if the copyright owner objects to your use of it; you have to get permission before you use it, or you run the risk for being sued. Ouch!

I know - it's not good, is it Rachel? We tell budding authors not to worry, that as soon as they write something down it's covered by copyright, and then we go and use images... I've made a list of all the blog posts I need to go back and edit. Good thing I've got lots of my own photos!

I definitely need to find a new image for this post - but the part I can;t understand is why no one got back to me - I tried the magazine, I tried Googling, finding the original ad, I tried searching for this photo on stock sites... poor kid, he's nowhere to be found!

Must be cos it's Austin :-)
