As I hop between blogs, I see some of the most wonderful, creative resources. I never fail to be amazed at the creativity and skill that you all show. So it always comes as a huge disappointment to me to hear about Cease and Desist cases involving our work.
Cease and Desist is a pretty hot potato at the moment. It makes our job much tougher and we all have to be on our toes when it comes to what we can and can't use in our work. I remember reading an email from someone a few months ago (my apologies to the author - try as I might, I just can't seem to find the email...) encouraging us to go out and build up a bank of original images that we could use without fear of receiving a Cease and Desist letter. What a great idea!
So here you go - my first offering. I've scoured my photo gallery and put together my first packet of photos - settings and characters. Use them as you wish - writing prompts, story starters or just display them (they would make a great bulletin board display if you are learning about the UK..). Copyright remains with me, but I guarantee you won't be receiving a Cease and Desist letter...
Hop across to my blog to see what's on offer. I'd love to hear your views too - are these photo resources useful? Can you put them to some use? I'd love to see your pics of how you use them.
