  1. I would love to use your beautiful photo of the wolf moon behind the oak tree branches in our free online newsletter. We are a small nonprofit organization, Hills Conservation Network, that celebrates the beauty and importance of trees. Many of the people in this area blame the trees for the 1991 Oakland-Berkeley fire. The majority of those in our organization survived the fire and rebuilt their homes here. We are committed to convincing people that the trees were (and are) not the problem. We advocate for the saving of trees, especially those of diverse species.

    We would like to use your photo to accompany a poem called “Winter Trees” by William Carlos Williams on a page called Celebrating Trees.

    A link to our newsletter appears on the listserve Open Forum, which goes to members of our community. We also send a PDF of the newsletter to about 200 other people who live outside this immediate area but are allied with us in wanting to save trees.

    We hope you will give us permission to use your photo and that you will not charge for this one-time use. Please let us hear from you soon.

  2. I wish to use your photo “Wet Brick Streets At Night” as one of the illustrations of my post “Nostalgia Self-Absorption” on my WordPress blog: . I usually just rip off the pix from Google Image Search that best fit my subject matter–but you have a specific and easy-to-use manner of requesting permission–if everyone had the same thing, I’d always ask.
    Please let me know–I’m posting today, but I will be able to insert the graphic, should you choose to allow it.
    Thanks for your kind consideration.

    1. Chris, thanks for actually requesting! I truly appreciate it. I’m always flattered when someone wants to use one of my images. Depending on the use, I usually ask for a credit line of some sort, in print it’s my name, electronically either posting the name of the site or embedding a link to this site or to the post. Let me know where it is, I’d love to see it and read your post!
