• Dear Julie,
    Happy New Year to you!
    Funny to read in your side line: Just remember to be gracious and link back but all your photos appear without a link.
    Just a mention that they are from Tumblr is not the same as linking back to their owners. Personally I don't really appreciate this kind of Plagiarism as it is HARD work to style and photograph things well.
    Wish we would see more courtesy for 2013.
    Hugs to you,

  • Love, love these images Julie! Oh yes great thoughts to ponder & take action on!

    All the best!

  • Dear Mariette,

    Happy new year to you too and thank you for the time to comment. You must be a new reader who hasn't seen many of my posts. I'm not a rookie at blogging and I always try very hard to link back to the source of all my images. Take a deeper look and you'll see that your comment was way to soon to judge and criticize. Your comment about linking specifically to the photographer and styling is difficult because images are usually re-posted one too many times, by the time they get to a blogger's hands there is usually no info as to who photographed them. Some bloggers even link back to their own Tumblr and Pinterest pages/account even when they first find the original images somewhere else.

    P.S. I don't think the word plagiarism applies here because I'm not clamming these images are mine.

  • I love the first photo. The colour of the bike is very pretty. Thank you for stopping by at Polonica: Home Again. I've joined your site, as well.

  • Wow, Julia I just got criticism from a site because i used Pinterest, yet I never claimed that they were my photos, I strictly gave them credit as pinterest or from the Blog that pinned them to pinterest!
    I have put out photos of my own work on the web knowing that they will be used by people pinning etc thats the chance you take when you put it out on the web, You always give the proper credit and do such a gracious and sophisticated blog.. I love it! Keep it up girl!!

  • Love this eye candy, Julie – so many wonderful details like the inside lining of the girl's coat matching her bike and the lovely handles on the leather purse. I have worn Chanel No. 5 all my life – Love. The mirrored wall is beautiful. Happy week to you! xx
