April 28, 2009: The Beauty & The Beast
This picture came from Flickr but I've lost the damn link.
Aliantha Tuesday Apr 28 12:48 AM
That looks more like a water spout than a tornado...and it looks a lot like Coolangatta.

that pic is a perfect metaphor for life.
Sheldonrs Tuesday Apr 28 09:56 AM
Sort of a rainblow effect.

The photographer had either:

Somewherrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrre over the waterspout!

Does the IotD come down? Yr thoughts.
Shawnee123 Tuesday Apr 28 11:44 AM
Are we infringing on future profits they would make off this picture? If it's private, should it not be hanging out there on the internet for anyone to see, thus making it impossible for viewing by the general public?
glatt Tuesday Apr 28 11:46 AM
That's a shame. His flickr page was dormant for months until this iotd revived it. Fewer people will see his work now. His loss. Ours too.
LabRat Tuesday Apr 28 11:49 AM
Maybe it wasn't really his pic to begin with...
xoxoxoBruce Tuesday Apr 28 12:04 PM
I didn't actually see the picture on Flickr, I saw it on another site (that I lost the link to ), that said it came from Flickr. On tsibley's Flickr link the name of the photographer is pinoyphotog, which makes me believe it's probably the Philippines or S.E. Asia. That would fit the architecture too.
xoxoxoBruce Tuesday Apr 28 12:08 PM
Oh crap, sorry folks, my bad.
Undertoad Tuesday Apr 28 12:11 PM
Not really your bad. It's the photographer's loss.
classicman Tuesday Apr 28 12:29 PM
Guess he/she has no idea how much exposure he/she is losing. His/Her loss IMO.
Pie Tuesday Apr 28 12:51 PM
If it were my pic, and I was dead set on retaining the rights to it, I would tell Tony, "Go ahead and keep it up, just add attribution and a copyright notice".
capnhowdy Tuesday Apr 28 01:05 PM
I wonder what would happen if a dwellar posted it on, say WTF?
Shawnee123 Tuesday Apr 28 01:06 PM
National Geographic called: they said the picture isn't really that good. Can we put it back up now?
capnhowdy Tuesday Apr 28 01:09 PM
"We don't need no stinking badges!"
Undertoad Tuesday Apr 28 01:13 PM
Be fair, the Google advertising on the IotD might make 50 cents from a day's shot. Pro photographers will lament the loss of that income.
SteveDallas Tuesday Apr 28 01:13 PM
Let it go... he asked for it to be taken down, it was. Nothing to see here. Move along.
Pie Tuesday Apr 28 01:27 PM
yah, but he's stoooopid!
charmzny Tuesday Apr 28 03:01 PM
If you click on the Flickr link and then this photographer's profile -- it shows that he/she is from South Florida. This person has some other great shots too. Check out Duck Pins.
sweetwater Tuesday Apr 28 04:02 PM
Guess the thread title should change to "Imagine of the Day".
glatt Tuesday Apr 28 04:31 PM
One of those anonymous readers dropped a dime and got it yanked.
LabRat Tuesday Apr 28 04:33 PM
better than dropping the soap and getting 'd

I use a lot of pics from Flickr, but I don't use the "all rights reserved" ones. You just have to look and see if there's a common use license.

When people start clicking on that link it shows up as traffic from the Cellar so they come and see why. Unfortunately I didn't get up in time to move the link to the first post which may have placated pinoyphotog. But that's life.
Besides, it's all Aliantha's fault for putting a post in between the link and the picture.
Aliantha Wednesday Apr 29 03:06 AM
Everything's always all my fault. It's ok. I can live with it.
Crimson Ghost Wednesday Apr 29 03:32 AM
Hustler gave me carpal tunnel in High School.
Aliantha Wednesday Apr 29 03:37 AM
Yes, I discovered that just before thanks to Bruce.
xoxoxoBruce Wednesday Apr 29 03:38 AM
Right, she wasn't in Hustler... or waaassss sheeee?
Aliantha Wednesday Apr 29 03:41 AM
That's a secret.
capnhowdy Wednesday Apr 29 08:02 AM
Not any more.
glatt Wednesday Apr 29 09:58 AM
It's all really a non-event, and we should move on, but I wanted to be clear that I think tsibley is a good guy.
Undertoad Wednesday Apr 29 10:12 AM
Thanks Capn for your kind words.
capnhowdy Wednesday Apr 29 09:03 PM
xoxoxoBruce Thursday Apr 30 12:06 AM
Problem was, in tsibley's time zone I'm sleeping so didn't get the link moved to the first post. My fault, not his.
