My photos and Videos are "Creative Commons" - All I ask for anyone to use them is easy:
1. Ask Ask Ask
2. Use them Tastefully (no use on adult or porn sites)
3. Give me Credit for my work - do not post it as your own (on any web page or site). My name is Tony Alter
About me: Single, male, born in 1956 (you do the math), with three dogs (Jimmy Dean, Link, and Frank) and I love photography. I take photos just for the fun of it; I just wanted to take pictures of everyday life, of the stuff I see and like.
I listed Chicopee Mass as my hometown, but actually I lived there only a month - my father was in the Air Force and I was born there. After High School I joined the Navy and since I got out I have been living in Virginia. I have been in Newport News since 1985 (in VIrginia since 1977) so I guess, technically, I should call Newport News my hometown.
I used the screen name of "Tobyotter" because it was a nick name I got in the Navy. We had a guy on my boat that could not say my name correctly becuase of his accent; so "Tony Alter" became "Toby Otter" - and in the service nick names have a way of sticking.
Also, I try to keep my photos family friendly - and try not to offend - if you find any of my photos ofensive - please let me know and I will see what I can do to correct the problem. I just want to share my world and what I find enjoyable, without upsetting anyone.
I am an avid collector of vintage photographs and RPPC.

"Tony is the best and closest friend I've met on Flickr. Not only is he a fine photographer, potter and discerning art collector, he's got a tender heart as wide as the world and is one of the most genuinely committed animal lovers (all species) I know. He is a treasured friend to many people who have the privilege of knowing him. Tony is a rare gem in this world."

"Tobyotter has a nice selection on his photostream. From his wonderful companions ( his dogs), to the people he and they meet, and his art projects. Not only do his pictures tell a great story, and are good pictures, he is a person who leaves good feedback on a variety of pictures, and is always thankful for those who comment on his pictures"

At first this was te reason to visit his stream.
Now I enjoy his stream a lot and I get surprised by his creativity..
I like his humour and pleasant comments
for this reason Tony is a great Flickr-friend!"
