I screwed up. I upset the model whose image I have been using for Stock Photo Woman Fantasy. Foolishly I had thought the chances of her ever seeing my blog were very remote. I was wrong. She was upset and I can’t say I blame her. So all of Stock Photo Girl and Stock Photo Woman has been removed from this blog. Her image no longer appears here. I made a big mistake and I am very sorry for any hurt or embarrassment I caused. It was not my intent. I really should have known better.
This serves as a wake up call for me. I need to be a lot more mindful of how my work effects innocent people. I can see how many people would have the mistaken impression that fotolia, andres rodriguez and this model were somehow involved in what I did, and approved of it. That is certainly not the case. Because there may be material in this blog that I have overlooked that may be offensive to some innocent party, I have decided to remove it. It will no longer be visible on the internet. I will start a new blog which will be much more mindful and careful than this one. I have learned a hard lesson from this mistake. I can’t just do whatever I like and post it on the internet. I need to take other people’s feelings into consideration. The new blog will be newrussell5087.wordpress.com and it will not have a single image from fotolia, any image shot by andres rodriguez or any images of the model I offended. I am going to be a lot more careful.
Thank you for your interest in my blog. I hope you will decide to follow newrussell5087. Much of what is on this blog, that I am confident is inoffensive and not using anyone’s image without their permission will likely be reposted on the new blog. I enjoyed this blog, but I would not have enjoyed it so much if I had realized what harm I was causing. Again I apologize for that harm.
