Daily Rant for March 9, 2006: Sam Said NO!

Sam Said NO!

Sam of Sam’s Exotic Travel Photos said “© All rights reserved” and that we could not blog the above photo (or any others).

In his profile, Sam writes: For anyone who has stumbled on my profile for the first time, I am in my second career doing travel photography. I am pretty fortunate in that I have the opportunity to travel internationally – something I once did only for business. It’s a lot nicer when you can smell the roses and get up close and personal with all the beautiful people of this shrinking world.

I’m struck by the sharp dichotomy of saying “© All rights reserved” while taking pictures like this:
