“Where are we Mom?” asked Joey.
“Don’t know Joey,” answered his Mom.
“When will we get there Mom?”
“Don’t know Joey.”
“What do you know Mom?” asked Joey.
“We’re heading back to the future,” said his Mom.
“When do we eat?”
“Don’t know Joey.”
“I don’t like this trip,” thought Joey.

Travel Across America

Several years ago I was in Utah traveling to several National Parks. It is difficult to drive out west as the landscape is breathtaking in every direction. A 1 hour journey can take many more as I stop along the way to see as much as I can. I don’t remember exactly where this road was, but it was on my journey to Capitol Reef National Park.


Corbis + Costco = More Bad News

I’m a member of Costco as I’m sure a lot of you are. I like the savings and it has a photo division that I use for smaller projects. With the celebration of Thanksgiving this week, I was naturally distracted when my issue of “The Costco Connection” arrived in the mail. But on Saturday night, after a great day in New York City, something on the cover caught my attention. It was a travel photo with the caption “Picture This! Corbis Images from Costco photo centers”.

Rather than repeat what I read, let me provide a few highlights (direct from the magazine) – “the images have been curated specifically for and licensed to Costco by Corbis Images. For Costco members, there is no additional charge for the use of the images from the Art & Images Gallery collection. ‘The beauty of it is that Costco members can use these top images for all kinds of decorating projects and even for resale’ says Glen Hutchinson. Possible uses (and I’m paraphrasing here) ‘include anything for home or for business’.

Wow. So now anyone can pick a photo, make a 100 ¬†8×10 prints at $1.49 each and RESELL them without any of the profit given to the original photographer. Businesses, large and small, can save BIG when they need images to decorate the walls of their properties. Again I say, WOW!

I realize that the choice of photographs dedicated to this offer are probably small, however at one time RF was small and Microstock didn’t exist. So, with a little imagination, where will we be in a few years?


Photo Show

I’m a member of the New Jersey Chapter of ASMP (also the treasurer). Every year at this time we have our Fine Art Show. For this year, our “16th Annual ASMP-NJ Juried Photo Competition and Exhibition” –¬†entries were accepted on Thursday (4/29/10). Judging and the hanging of the work was on Friday. Today is the reception with a guest speaker – Fine Art Photographer, Parish Kohanim.

I’ve been entering the competition for several years now, never winning top prize but getting an “honorable mention”, but for the past two years my work hasn’t even been accepted for inclusion in the show. I think it’s time for a coup d’etat and stacking the deck with jurors of my own. Then they’ll fear me.

(The photo above was NOT in the competition. It’s where I’d rather be right now.)
