"Ask, and you will receive..."  Most people just never get around to asking!

Joan Mirantz left a comment on my blog asking for this photo.

Mike...I especially loved that photo you posted with the cows
lined up at the fence...

would you post it again so I can copy it?


Gifts are the fabric of relationships, according to Seth Godin in his new book "Linchpins."  Reading that book, I decided not to copyright my images ~ to just give them to anyone who could use them.  That decision has increased traffic on my blog, and added to my blog subscriptions.

Thanks for asking, Joanie!


Like my photo? I don't copyright them anymore.

Right click on the image, copy and enjoy!

Please let me know how you used it.

That's very generous of you. It would have to be a very special occasion where I just can't find what I need before I would borrow someone else's photo with the permission.

Mike, it is your gift, you are a great photographer, and most of all, you are a great person who won't mind sharing with others.

I remember that photo.  I can't get over how green it is.  Is this in OK?

Not Oklahoma.  The Bruce Peninsula in Canada.


Haven't I seen you before?


Thanks for saying so.




What I'm finding is that folks are using them for desktops on their computers.




Thanks for being the first to comment.  See you on your blog.

That's a good one, Mike.  I missed it the first time around, so I'm glad you re-posted it.

You're most welcome!


You were the very first person to comment on my blog when I joined Active Rain back in '07, and it makes me smile every time I see you.  It's hard to believe, but that was more than 20,000 comments ago!

Hi Mike!
Gotta love it!  I have a similar one with puppies on a fence (literally)!

HI Mike - that is very generous of you to allow use of your photos - you do have some amazing photographs. And BTW - "ask and you shall receive" is one of my favorite quotes.

They were interested in the big bull in the next pasture.  I don't think they noticed me at all.  :)

Barbara Jo,

Not me.  The bull.


I want to see that "puppies on the fence" photo!

Great photo, Mike!  Maybe these cows are lined up to see the purple cow.

I like your idea of not copyrighting photos. I don't copyright mine but I might do so with only a few of them. The rest of them are for the fun of it.
