Free Flower And Garden Photos
There are different ways to show appreciation. It is sometimes a challenge to find good free photos online, and in appreciation for my fellow writers I wanted to share photos that I have taken, that are ready for a website (low resolution), that aren't published elsewhere. (some of the autumn ones may have been uploaded to my blog, but will eventually be replaced by previously unpublished ones- but you are free to use them)
For attribution, go ahead and link them to this page. http://www.squidoo.com/free-garden-photos
You don't need to attribute or anything else, but I ask that you not put them into a collection to use unfairly or sell . Unfair is defined as attributing them to anyone other than me, or using them as your own linkware. Share and share alike. Freely given, so freely give.
The photos of the four seasons, some are macro photos of flowers, some are garden scenes- all are free for your web use.

Take Great Photos - This is the camera I am aiming for- eventually
Most definitely on my wish list for improving photo taking capabilities. This is the camera I notice my fellow bloggers use when they have particularly wonderful illustrations of plants and gardens, or whatever their subject may be. So now it is on my own "buy list".

In Return - Nothing necessary
If your heart overflows you can:
- share this hub on social media
- pass on the resource (link on your site)
- make good garden or nature hubs and articles
- do something nice for other garden writers on Hubpages
And unrelated to the photos... you can learn to be more environmentally responsible, just because that is a good thing to do :)
OH yes. And don't hotlink, even though I know there are different definitions for that. Try to download to your own computer and upload from there. Overload of demand makes things shut down and on personal websites might raise costs exorbitantly.
Taking Pictures - Learn to see
I am not an expert photographer as you can see. The biggest lesson I am learning is to remember to take my camera with me and . Because there are so many opportunities for great pictures, but you need that camera handy to catch them. Taking many pictures is also important- you learn to see with the camera when you make lots of mistakes... and you accidentally take some great ones, too. Eventually learning to find the good shots as you get more experienced.

I ask that you not include them in collections to sell or pass them off as your own, but you can put them into hubpage articles or webpages and you don't need to attribute unless you want to. They have low resolution for webpage purposes, so they aren't useful for Zazzle, etc.
