Look for me on C-Span!


As you know, I'm a huge fan of the website Flickr, because it has introduced me -- via photographic images -- to like-minded nature-lovin', art-makin', bird-watchin', planet-savin' people. Say what you will about other aspects of Flickr. The community aspect of this site is unparalleled.

Today, through Flickr, I got a message from someone who works for the office of New Jersey Senator Robert Menendez. They wanted to know if I would allow use of my photographs of the San Francisco Oil Spill when he speaks out, on the floor of the United States Senate, against a proposed effort to expand oil drilling off the Atlantic Coast.

You KNOW what my response was:
HELL YEAH, you can use my photos!

For more on the Senator's views on this topic, click here. I particularly like this:

"Senator Menendez recognizes that we cannot drill our way to energy independence, and he will not sacrifice our environment or New Jersey’s beaches to those who think we can."

I believe that he will be speaking on this topic on Monday, so you can watch this on C-Span if you are interested.

oh phooey. I don't care about the photos, except that they could be useful in trying to protect the Atlantic.

Good to hear there exists a senator, from NJ even, smart enough to use your fine photos.

"Senator Menendez recognizes that we cannot drill our way to energy independence..."
