Copyright & Usage

I have put a lot of time and hard work into creating these photos and as such is my profession and how I earn my keep. I  hope my work is able to inspire and enlighten my visitors. I invite you to return often and see new work emerge and develop over time.   However, any copying, hotlinking and downloading is stealing and I would really appreciate that you don’t do any these things.  This is the legalese version, a necessity that I dislike having to post but trust that you will respect and honour.
