    Very strong, powerful image.
  • Laura Smith 4y

  • tjmcgove 3y

    Would I be able to use this photo for a non for profit advertisement for the Iowa Federation of Children's mental health?
  • Shiroi (Bob) 3y

    This is an excellent photo, emotion portrayed or shown in a way like I hope to do in my photography. Did you accept the Iowa Federation's offer?
  • LesEstelle 3y

    Thank you so much for allowing me to use your photo on my blog! I always post credit but have never been quite sure how to ask permission first until Pintrist. So Sorry! Leslie
  • Laura Smith 3y

    Shiroi (Bob) Bob, nope. I sent tjmcgove a separate private message but received no response. I would have said yes, as long as they gave me credit. :-)

    LesEstelle What is 'Pintrist'? No worries. I good as long as you provide me a link and give me credit. Do I have your link?

    I would love to use this picture for a non-profit organization for abused girls
  • Shiroi (Bob) 2y

    MARTHA JACQUES I think it would be a good photo for an important organization like that.
  • Laura Smith 2y

    MARTHA JACQUES Jacques, being a survivor of child sexual abuse myself, I support any organization that promotes awareness. I need more information from you before I can agree; can you send me a message?

    Shiroi (Bob) You are too sweet. :-) I have to make sure she is legit though. The guy above, tjmcgove, ended up being a fraud. He never worked for the company he stated he did.
  • Shiroi (Bob) 2y

    Laura Smith Laura, I am very glad you checked out tjmcgove first. His flickr account contains nothing, which would have made me suspicious, too. Keep being careful.I am very sorry about your past abuse. I hope you have been able to cope with the aftermath as well as possible. I was victim of some child and early teen sexual abuse as well. Congratulations on all the good legitimate uses of this photo.
  • Laura Smith 2y

    Shiroi (Bob) Ya. I emailed the organization. No such employee. :-) I am sorry to hear you have experienced abuse as well. The more I talk about it, the more I realize, I am not alone. It is an evil cycle. I am still in the process of working it out. I can say, I have learned to hate the action and not necessarily the individual. And that I am lovable. I am trying to learn boundaries. :-) I hope you coping well.
  • Shiroi (Bob) 2y

    Laura Smith Many predators have a strong ability to sense when a victim will not complain or tell anyone, and they seek out those types to prey on. My first abuse happened in a public place...I was scared to say anything, and felt there must be some reason why he needed to do that stuff that discomforted me. I am in therapy and have had much discussion of boundaries as well. Thank you for wishing me luck; I am trying to cope as best as I can. I wish the best for you always. It is good you make distinctions between actions and individual. I also try to differentiate between evil selfish intent and mental sickness. I am glad the organization knows someone was exploiting and lying about them.

    Shiroi (Bob) Therapy does a body good. :-) And for me, so does meds. :-)
  • Shiroi (Bob) 2y

    Laura Smith They must be the right kind of meds, then! I am glad therapy helped you!
