Today I was delighted to find out that one of my favorite photos from my 2005 Japan trip has been used to promote green building practices on Green By Design. I released it free for use on sxc.hu along with a few other photos I thought might be useful for stock photography. While some of the photos I uploaded have been used for more unusual designs, I’ve generally been amazed by the pieces people have managed to create. And amazed at who uses the site: my photos have been used by KLM airlines, Harper-Collins and the World Health Organisation. It’s great to see them being used – which they wouldn’t have been, if they weren’t free. Viva la freedom of information, I say. But don’t get me started on privacy.
