ReBlogged // The Web is Your Oyster: Where to Find Free-to-Use Images

I like pictures. You like pictures. We all like pictures.

The Daily Post

For many of you, images are an integral part of your site. But sometimes, you might not have the right photograph to use for a post. As we’ve mentioned before, you can use the Creative Commons to search for images you need across the web, from Flickr to Wikimedia Commons, and source and attribute images that you find.

This spring, WordPress.com announced embed support for Getty Images, which means you can also access and share photos from Getty’s extensive library for non-commercial use.

Good Friday Sunrise!

20140418_065549

As is our wont, the Hubs and I took in this morning’s sunrise. What an absolutely glorious start to Good Friday!

It occurred to me this morning – and not for the first time – that I have seen more sunrises with this man than I have seen in my entire life. It truly makes my heart sing with love to be able to share these precious waking moments with my best friend.

Maybe it’s just this current stage of life I’m experiencing where 5 AM isn’t an unreasonable waking hour anymore. (Hello! 50th birthday in a mere 4 months!) Or perhaps it’s simply the nature our life together. I’m sure living at the beach has something to do with it, that’s for sure!

No matter what it is that’s wrought these circadian changes though, waking up early has simply become the most special part of my day and a truly wonderful addition to my life! Besides… I like knowing that the birds start their songs 5 minutes before first light.  I truly learned this recently. Isn’t that the coolest? Almost 50 and still learning.
