hello braindance.i've been following your eclectic collection for a while now.why don't you state the sources when showing all these pictures / illustrations / photographies ?looking forward for a reasonable argument on that question. if you care to reply:firstname.lastname@example.org'll be following further on,alex from bucharest, romania.
Hello Alex,That is a good question,I have a couple of answers, but the most truthful answer is, I am too lazy, hence me being here, and not on Tumblr.It would take the fun out of it to a certain extent, making it more like work.(Cataloguing/database/order is a big aspect of my work life)I wanted to do something a bit more organic.I presume that everybody looking knows that I am not trying to take the credit for any of the images, even the ones that are mine.I do keep a catalogue of all the images I use in named folders, so if I really needed to find a source, I think I could 80-90% of the time Also, I try to create a story or vibe with very loose parameter's within the pictures I use, I like the way it flows from picture to picture without words, giving people the space to take from it what they wantI also use obscure google searches a lot, sometimes a random picture will come up, with no way of identifying who it is by or where it came from.As a rule, I generally do not use Ffffound (my spyware tells me it's unsafe)Flickr (I find the interface tedious) or any other image storing website. Braindance is a labour of love in some respects, I enjoy the Braindance coincidence of the images I stumble across, and I try to reflect that in the way I present them.I have tried putting a disclaimer at the bottom of every page, stating that the pictures are not mine, and if you want credit for a picture, or it taken down, please contact me.I have seen this in other places, and thought it was a good idea.The reason I have not done it is, *cough cough* I do not know how to! I cannot figure out blogger past the simple programs.Lame I know, but truthfulIf there are any images you are particularly interested in knowing the origin of,feel free to ask, and I will try to procure an answer for youAll the best,Braindance:0)
