TIN EYE Finding where your online photos are being used


Finding where your photos are being used  TIN EYE

An odd bit of technology confusion. I looked into an add on for Firefox, called TinEye, which allows you to search the web for images of yours and where they are being used. I found the first one I tried being used in a Polish website, but couldn’t see the image.

I did find another being used, a photo of my Smith Corona Sterling portable manual typewriter. In Feb. 2006 I posted it on flickr.com in my account.

and here is a screen capture of the photo.

I have had a couple of emails with the blogger but somehow there is a different version of the page and the image is from somebody else.

I wish Creative Commons had a credit line required option,  my photo was free to use to any non profit.

Black and white photos of the old company store


My photos of the old company store (lumber company store) in Victoria Harbour, Ontario – think of 16 tons and Tennessee Ernie Ford, although the owner of this lumber company had a reputation for philanthropy and kindness. built around 1910.

last trace of snow – east end of Georgian Bay near my home


looking about due north and up the bay to past Beausoleil Island, which is to the right of frame and some distance along.

This is Robins Point, not for the bird but for a family named Robins.

Dialysis run on Friday was smoother. That strange lightheadedness less evident. Today it is “hot” and I sat out on the back deck reading with my shirt off. Ice still in the bay but the sun is nice and warm. Lots of ducks, geese and gulls out and about.

East end of Georgian Bay, still with ice


More sunshine but still not warm. I had a so so day today after dialysis yesterday. When my run was over my blood pressure took a dive. 163 sitting and then 109 standing. I continued to feel a little lightheaded for part of the evening. Not sure what is going on. This lightheadedness continued today. It has been lurking for the past two weeks. My long standing cold has mostly cleared…. cough gone, still blowing my nose. If this lightheaded thing doesn’t go away by Monday I will go see my family fizz. On the plus side my reduced appetite has helped me drop about twenty pounds. I am also managing my fluid intake better. I am seeing veins my lower legs most days. This is a sign that I have no edema, no fluid retention.

As far as the bay in front of my home. I want the ice to go, so Grace can go wading and I can go swimming and kayaking soon.
