Gotta Love the Internet

Editorial photo by Paul Ottaviano

Photo I shot in 2008. Used by a French publication in a story about Portland, Oregon.

While doing some matching on Pixsy, I discovered that a photo I shot 8 years ago and put on my late great Flickr profile was used in 2012 by a French publication. The article, as best as my poor French can make out, was about Weird Portland and its so-called hipster culture.

I got a chuckle out of this. It’s funny that a photo I shot so quickly eight years ago, with a Nikon Coolpix of all things, found new life across-the-pond. I also appreciate them giving me attribution and using a photo with a Creative Commons license that gave them permission. If they hadn’t or had infringed an all rights photo, this post would’ve taken on a completely different tone.

Speaking of the photo, I wonder what he is up to now?
