I'm one of those folks who tries to not take myself too seriously on a personal level. However, when it comes to what I do for a living, what I create, and what I do for others, I take it very seriously.
The images I copyright here on BarrowImages are not just images that have a label here - they bear a copyright from the US Copyright office. I sumbit my published images on a monthly basis. Not only does this mean your image is preserved in the Library of Congress, it protects my work from theft on a higher level.
Should you see one of my images on someone else's website, please let me know. It keeps everyone honest, it preserves the integrity of the craft and business of photography,and it helps keep my prices low.
Best of all, should what you spot lead to a copyright infringement award for BarrowImages, I can give you a reward. :-)
