InkTober: “31 Days 31 Drawings” Day 1


My take on #InkTober…thru photography and apps.

“31 Days 31 Drawings

Every October, artists all over the world take on the InkTober drawing challenge by doing one ink drawing a day the entire month. I created InkTober in 2009 as a challenge to improve my inking skills and develop positive drawing habits. It has since grown into a worldwide endeavor with thousands of artists taking on the challenge every year.

Anyone can do InkTober, just pick up a pen and start drawing.

InkTober rules:

1) Make a drawing in ink (you can do a pencil under-drawing if you want).

2) Post it on your blog (or tumblr, instagram, twitter, facebook, flickr, Pinterest or just pin it on your wall.)

3) Hashtag it with #inktober

4) Repeat

Note: you can do it daily, or go the half-marathon route and post every other day, or just do the 5K and post once a week. What ever you decide, just be consistent with it. INKtober is about growing and improving and forming positive habits, so the more you’re consistent the better.

That’s it! Now go make something beautiful.”

Blind Leading The Blind


So to add to the further hub bub about Facebook messenger (or any mobile app) and the prlermissions society doesn’t want to give up, you should download and pay for at least one month of Lookout Premium. Scanned all of the apps on you phone to see what permissions you’ve already granted. You’ll be surprised what you find. Anyone wanna go back to using a flip phone (not the smartphone which will lead to the replacement of people by robots)?

I already know and accept the fact that big brother is watching me.  On Star Trek, the Borg’s infamous statement was “Resistance Is Futile”.  Change is inevitable so adapt and overcome, that’s my motto.  Just my two cents.

Real Estate Photography “Etiquette”

 Are you Using Photos Owned by Other Entities?

The Realtors Law & Policy Department says

Cease and desist or pay some steep fines

    You’ve just secured a great listing, but soon you realize that your smartphone photos don’t showcase the property and its surroundings to its full potential. So you go on the Internet, find some pictures you like and use them for your marketing and advertising. The problem for real estate professionals is that the pictures are the intellectual property of some entity. Someone used their time to take, edit, and publish those photos; therefore they own the rights -unless specifically noted. By using those photos you obtained off the Internet, you are infringing on their intellectual property rights without authorization. The Realtors Law & Policy Department says ignorance, accident, or third party use on your behalf, are NOT an excuse. You will be held liable…
