Sites using my photographs

A site (Holman Library) using my shot "world wide web" the way I intended it, given the circular crop. First seen here.
Added: Pierce College did the same here.

A few years ago, the Houston-based real estate site Swamplot used a picture I took to illustrate a story about the expected closure of the Borders bookstores. I shot this one at the Westheimer Borders parking lot, waiting for the rain to stop before going to the shop. Sadly, indeed this Borders is no more.

Perhaps not unexpected that someone writing about Karl marx and China would come across this photograph by me: it depicts the sculptures of Marx and Engels in the Shanghai French Park. First seen here.

Yet another site using a photograph by me, in this case of umbrellas shot in Antwerp. The link with the subject of decorating apartments is a bit far-fetched I would think. First seen here.

Another unexpected type of web site to find a picture by me being used as illustration: this one about how to hold a skill swap auction. First seen here.

An unexpected site to find one of my photographs on... my wooden shoes shot was used to illustrate a piece on Amsterdam shoe shops for larger feet at the Amsterdam Mamas site. First seen here.

Another example of my photography being used elsewhere on the internet - in this case in a piece about the famous bridge at Millau. First seen here.

Another example of a site using one of my photographs as illustration. This one is a post on protection of old photographs at the Photograph works site. First seen here.

Here we have a Japanese photography site (Naver) highlighting four basic rules of photography composition (rule of thirds, rule of odds, rule of space, rule of diagonal), using one of my shots to illustrate the rule of odds concept. Incidentally, I used the same shot for the same subject in my main art blog. First seen here.

Three for the price of one... My recent shot Preparing for the Elfstedentocht (top left in the mosaic) proved to be very popular in recent days, as it was used to illustrate three different web based articles on Dutch skating tours, including the Elfstedentocht itself (which was unfortunately cancelled). First seen here, here and here.

I still feel flattered when my photographs are used by other sites, especially when big names like Forbes do this. Their article about the ban on social media for volunteers at the 2012 Olympic games came with my shot London 2012 as illustration. First seen here.

Another unexpected place for one of my photographs to turn up: in a German article on the creation of more places for medicine students in Nord-Rhein-Westfalen. First seen here.

The main Samsung site includes a slide show of shots made with their cameras - and I was pleasantly surprised to be featured there with one of mine. First seen here.

An interesting choice for one of my photographs as illustration for a blog entry in French, dealing with the top 10 reasons why girls do not want to settle down. First seen here.

Another web site that is using one of my photographs with the proper reference. In this case, June Lily Studio, who took a part of my shot Fabric to illustrate the use of colours in design. First seen here.

A fun use of my shot Spring in Shanghai in an article about Chinese girlfriends. More particularly Shanghai girl friends. Rings a bell somehow. First seen here.

Another somewhat unexpected use of one of my shots. The site Eat your career chose this one as illustration of their article on what to do when you are stressed at work and quitting really isn’t an option. First seen here.

Now here is a fitting and noble use of one of my shots. I actually re-made this version of an older shot, applying the pink colour in photoshop, for a breast cancer awareness group on Flickr. The vague resemblance of the shape to the female breast is a coincidence, but a nice one. A website dedicated to the same subject has meanwhile used this image to great effect - and as October is breast cancer awareness month, it makes a fitting post. First seen here.

Another unexpected place for one of my shots to surface: in the photograph encyclopedia Fotopedia, under the heading communism  I shot this one in Presov, Slovakia: a mural dating back to the communist days. First seen here.

I bet that this Chinese guy who was exercising with his ribbons in Shanghai's Fuxing Park did not expect to end up on an American health care web site - via my camera (see here on Flickr for the original shot). First seen here.

One of the fun things of allowing your photographs to be used for non-commercial applications is that they can turn up in the most unexpected places. When I took this autumn shot of the neighbours' fence, I did not anticipate seeing it used one day on a site with suggestions how to make your house ready for the winter. First seen here.

It is always fun to see my photographs used (with credit) by others, even though the connection is sometimes a bit of a stretch. I never would have expected this one to end up heading a blog post about muslims working on Friday..... First seen here.
