Virtual Contact

    Prev Next

    The more Internet connections we can make, the less "real" connections we seem to have. It seems the majority of contact with the outside world many of us seem to get these days is through the use of one of these.

      Ah, the unmistakable mbp keyboard. Great job lighting this shot, the mix of ambient with the fiber back-light worked out really well. I would agree, but it definitely goes both ways - think of how many connections we are able to keep because of the super-connected world in which we live, it is quite amazing if you think about it.

      Seen on your photo stream. (?)

      Of course go ahead and use it, that's why it's cc licensed!

      Hey, Wow... great. Thanks for making this cc licensed. Very few good pictures that we can use. Usually I spend a good 30 minutes trying to find a decent picture, I just typed the word "contact" as I was looking for a picture to replace the old envelop to put on my web site in the contact section and found this within one click.

      Thanks so much

      PS: how to you keep a keyboard so clean? lolll

      I don't use the keyboard... or very rarely... mostly I have an external keyboard for it. Glad it can be of some use.

      Sorry folks the License has been changed back to Copyright for the time being as it has been accepted into the Getty Galleries. If you have used it previously as CC you may leave it for the time being. I promise to take some more similar shots and CC them though. I guy can't say no to a few extra bucks...

    19. derekGavey 50 months ago | reply

      I am removing this from being used at Getty, as soon as it's released I will change the license back to CC. Getty doesn't need this image nearly as much as the rest of you do. Feel free to use it again in an appropriate CC manner.
