Random quick updatey thing

~Viktor Krum looks like Aras in this picture.

~My eyes keep like.. sending out tears. Someone is going to get the totally wrong impression and think I'm crying (Either sad or happy tears)...or I'll get referred to as "an emotional girl." I have no idea why, I think my eyes are just dry and therefore want to make themselves...wet. This could pose a problem tonight (see below)

~Tonight I am a clown at a Family Literacy Workshop thingie for my mom. For once we'll have two clowns, because Deborah is doing it too. I'm excited. I like clowning. What I do not like is making billions of balloon animals, because after awhile, your fingers start to hurt really badly from all the tying. I'd rather just entertain by dancing or magic tricks or something. Perhaps the can-can?

~Bulbous Bouffant is the BEST. SONG. EVER. I can't believe I went this long without listening to it.

~I stayed up way too late on the phone last night, but had some fabulous discussion. Now I open a main topic up to you:

Who owns pictures?

the person who takes them / has them taken on their camera
every one of the people in them

Does it depend on other factors? Does it matter? Why or why not?

I can't do the poll because I kind of think both answers are right. I mean, in MY case, even if I don't take the pictures of Riley personally, it's MY kid and I wouldn't want them posted around places I didn't want.

...as I sign the photo release for Riley's new daycare.

Unless the people in them have signed a contract saying the photographer can use their pictures for advertising or something (for example, wedding photographers, and last year at camp I had to keep this one girl out of candids and everything bc her mom hadn't signed the photo release), then the pictures shouldn't be used. I wouldn't want pictures of me, my wedding, my kids, etc. put up somewhere.

If you mean stuff like using a pic of a friend in your MySpace, personal site, facebook etc. (I'm thinking of what happened with your friend Seana yesterday), in most cases I think it's ok to use them without telling the person unless it's something that would really embarrass or harm them. And usually if a person asks for the photo to be taken off, it should probably be removed.

It sounds like a complex question. I would say we need a right to privacy, so that random photographers can't publish pictures of individuals without their permission.

On the other hand, if some intrepid photographer snaps a picture of slaughterhouse workers shoveling live mice into the meat grinder, then that's something the public really ought to know about, and the slaughterhouse company shouldn't be able to block publication easily.

In the case of your friend; I'd say the polite thing to do is to take down the picture, or at least take her name off of it. Maybe you're not legally or morally required to, but it's the nice thing to do.

Much like pineapples, I am hardcore.
