Dearest Friends and Followers,

Let’s talk about cyber bullying- a very serious subject and one I hope you will take the time to really think about…

As mentioned a while ago, for those that have paid attention, there have been some folks on tumblr, specifically in our…

So sad and pathetic…………I hope this will stop immediately. Lina is very dear to me. She is one of the kindest people on Tumblr. I don’t understand why would anybody hurt and bullying her……………I hope that the person in question quickly seek professional help. Perhaps it is curable.

I second Martin’s comment, it’s just bewildering to me to have someone who I thought was part of this photographic community act in this abusive and destructive way. I’ve been trying to make sense of it, is he retaliating for some perceived slight perhaps? What does he think the outcome will be other then to completely alienate himself from us all?  Lina and others, I’m so sorry you’re having to deal with this … my experience on here has been one of friendship and encouragement and inspiration, and I wish that for you too moving past this.   Jules 

It’s hard to make the moment last
Hard to keep the dreams you have
Hard to let the love inside your heart

The guards are always at the gates
Turning everyone away
But you got through
Didn’t you?

you’re the one I want  by Chris and Thomas

termination update

I wrote to ‘tumblr trust and safety’ and got the same line as Sam : 

Hello,

Thank you for your note. We’re really sorry - the email you received was due to an automated DMCA notification processing system that may have gone awry. We’re currently investigating the situation and will get back to you with more details about this as soon as possible.

In the meantime, please review our Community Guidelines around copyright infringement, and in particular, our policy prohibiting repeat infringement:https://www.tumblr.com/policy/en/community

 

Thank you,

Tumblr Trust & Safety

The problem is Tumblr has our hands tied as even when we delete the original mp3 files, it’s the gift that keeps on giving and the reblogs continue on, I guess with us getting the blame for the repeated infringements  … Had no idea that innocently uploading a song from my itunes would get me into all this trouble! Interesting to think about each post being my last, hope it doesn’t come to that.  Thanks for all the message of support my friends, much appreciated and I’ll keep you posted ( if I can ) 

Jules 

cheers imiging!

pixandum:

When I first started my tumblr over 3 1/2 years ago I uploaded songs (Mp3’s) to go with the pics (you know.. pixandum).  Quite some time ago i received a notice of a copyright infringement and learned that since I did not personally record or own the song I was unable to contest it. News to me, but ok…
I wrote about it HERE
Then i got another warning and I spent hours deleting (I thought) all the Mp3 posts from my site.  Apparently I missed one as I just got this message today.  So, 1) if you have any Mp3’s I suggest you delete them (unless of course you are the artist) and 2) If I suddenly disappear, this is likely the reason.

I got my final warning today, despite deleting every mp3 ever posted and not uploading any new songs for months now. Not sure what else to do, so same as Sam, if I disappear you’ll know why!  jules

L: Is photography a type of conversation? What are you trying to say?

N: Definitely! In addition to the famous cliché that ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’, the phenomenon of the image as a function of communication is proved here on Tumblr. A lot of people have blogs full of images (their own or reblogs) in an attempt to communicate how they feel, what they are thinking about. And it usually works much better and more accurately than traditional (verbal) forms of communication. 

What I’m trying to say is: The world is beautiful and infinitely interesting!

L: Is there anything you are really good at that does not involve photography? 

N: I like to think that there are more things that I’m good at  … but what is most important to me is trying to be a good father to my four year old son Marco. In addition to the endless entertainment, inspiration and constant flood of emotions, our interaction is reciprocal. I teach him to draw and take pictures (amongst many other things), and he teaches me unconditional love and to see world through his eyes. Priceless.

L: What is playing on your iPod right now?

N: Music is a very important part of my creative and inspirational process. Playlist for today is:

Rhythm And Sound – Mango drive

Pulshar – Dream When It’s Wrong

Massive Attack – Protection

Jazzbox – Later Than I Thought 

Digital Jockey - It Takes A Day To Walk A Mile

Nicolette – No Government (Makossa and Megablast Remake)

Paolo Nutini – Let Me Down Easy

I’m back from vacation and found this :)
Big thanks
Lux Lit and thank you Just Jules.

Good to have you back! My pleasure completely, so fun to learn more about the man behind these very cool abstractions : ) 

I took this a while back at one of  the kids ‘art wars’ events at the high school, loved how this student dressed for the occasion, when everyone else was in shorts and T’s : )
