Crayola Lincoln Logs

    Newer Older

    This picture was taken kind of as a spur-of-the-moment thing. I was setting up the crayons in the background for a different picture, and a friend of mine came into the lounge and started to build the "lincoln log" crayon tower that you see here. I liked the way that everything looked from this angle - so here's a picture :-)

    I think that this is one of the most visually interesting pictures that I have ever taken. I am very pleased with the way that it turned out.

      Hmmm... thanks for letting me know about that one. They used my photo without permission (or even asking or informing me about it). Looking through that webpage, there doens't even seem to be any credit given to me for my photo - kudos to you though for tracking it back to me!

      Oh, wow, I'm not trying to get anybody in trouble, but yeah, at the very least, they should give you credit. Hope you can resolve it.

      We're thinking of using this image for a Drugs & Alcohol charity in Bath, UK. If used, we'll credit you as the photographer and send you the link.
      All the best,
