Update on the note

I haven't done much as far as cleaning out the old stuff goes, but I have been more picky about uploading. If I take 130 pics, only 13 get uploaded.


Now that I'm going to have some free time, though, I may actually get to that cleaning...


Just a note

Given the veracity of Sturgeon's Law (90% of everything is crap), I am very shortly going to start a major overhaul of my content here. Specifically, each batch/set will be reduced to the best 10% or less. So if you have favorites, mark them now, before they get dropped! :)



I believe in Creative Commons and Open Source projects. I've licensed a bunch of my photos under Creative Commons, and I've also granted licenses for various photos to various businesses. Right now, the only images I have tagged were granted to Tharpa Publications (see here).


If you'd like to use one of my images, please contact me - I'm happy to grant permission in most cases. And if it's not CC-licensed, I'm likely to correct that (I forget to set licenses).


I'm a religion geek - I have a BA in religious studies, and focused on native religious traditions worldwide: Native American, Australian, African Diasporic traditions like Santeria and Candomblé, and so on. I have an MA in Celtic language and literature - my particular favorite, clearly.


I speak or read lots of languages - I'm a language geek too:

Je parle français.

Hablo Español.

Latinam loquor.


Tá gaeilge agam.

Dw i'n siarad Cymraeg.

and so on...


I am Gay too, with a wonderful man in my life. I believe in Gay Marriage too. Actually, I don't care what it's called so much, as long as I get all the same rights.


And I'm Pagan - an Animist, to be specific. If you want to know more, just ask.

Thanks, Aidan, for finding and using my Eldridge Street Synagogue photo. Hopefully I can entice you with more of my photos depending on the needs of your publication! And did I mention that I write? All the best, Diane

So, I've known this guy my entire life. No, really. He got his start in languages by making up new ones to make fun of my sister and I with.
