Creative common photos

Have you ever taken a photo off of google sand used it for your own personal use, but little did you know that most of the photos on the internet are protected by copyright. If you take a photo off the internet that has copyright, and use it for your personal use, that’s illegal. Because if it has copyright and you take it and use it, its like stealing somebody’s photo. There is a way you can get around copyright by using creative common websites. These websites have tons of great photos that are free to use. Some websites that are like this are pixabay, Flick,  unrestricted stock and many more. I took this photo when my class went to Oregon on a field study. This is a picture of Yaquina head and cobble beach.


Each photo represents what I like to do in my spare time.



Try to guess the sentence I made with images.

    Hi Nate,

    I loved your explanation about using pictures from the internet and copyright. It is so important to use copyright free pictures on your blog posts. My class loves to use Creative Commons and Unsplash to look for copyright-free pictures. I will tell them to try Pixabay and Flick too. It was very creative to make a sentence with pictures. Did you write: I love hockey and baseball? I also liked how you represented your interest with pictures as well.

    You are doing a great job!
    Mrs. Bennett

      Thank you so much Mrs. Bennett. Yes you guessed my sentence, baseball and hockey are my favourite sports.

    My name is Mrs Barrett and I am a teacher from Scotland.
    I really enjoyed reading your blog. It was a clever idea to link your slideshow to your favourite past-times. Do you like to eat biscuits or bake them?
    The sentence with photos was very clever as well, it shows you how universal photos are! You can use them to communicate with people from all over the world.

    Happy blogging!

      Hi, Mrs. Barrett I like eating chocolate chip cookies a lot. It’s also very cool that you’re from Scotland and you’re visiting my blog. You can see the difference in the way we talk a bit to because in canada we call biscuits cookies.

        Funnily enough I would call them chocolate chip cookies too! However, I consider them a type of biscuit. Does that make sense?
        You should challenge yourself to baking them, much healthier for you as you know exactly what is in them and they are easy to make!

          Sometimes I do try to bake them but usually they don’t turn out as good as I expected them to be.
