About the images
Though a few of the images on my blog are my own photos, unfortunately I'm not a gifted photographer as are so many bloggers. Thus I do rely on others' images. You will notice that they serve as links back to the places I got them, except in the case of images that are in common use throughout the web, are free clip art, or the like.

It is not my intent to appropriate images as my own or use others' images for monetary gain. If images require permissions before use, I am careful to ask first before posting. It is my intent to give credit wherever possible. I remain grateful that the web is such a visually stimulating place.

About the written material
Except for quotes, all material on this blog is my own work. Others are free to quote it as long as it is attributed to me, with a link to my site if possible.

About my profile images
Albert H. Krehbiel (1873-1945) was a painter based in Chicago who made many beautiful watercolors of local scenes. The images I use were painted in different seasons, along the Des Plaines River, during the early 20th century.
